Tenure Track Assistant Professor


University of Nebraska - Lincoln

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln has been approved to hire a tenure-track Assistant Professor in Experimental High Energy Physics to start in August 2008. Supported primarily by the National Science Foundation, the Nebraska HEP group presently consists of four faculty members (K. Bloom, D. Claes, A. Dominguez, and G. Snow), three postdoctoral researchers, plus graduate and undergraduate students. The primary focus of the group is accelerator-based experiments - the D0 Experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron and the CMS Experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider. In each, the group has responsibilities in detector hardware, software and computing, and physics analysis. Nebraska hosts a Tier-2 computing center for CMS. The group is also involved in the Pierre Auger Observatory and the Deep Underground Science and Engineering Laboratory. The group is invested in education and outreach activities, most visibly the Cosmic Ray Observatory Project (CROP), a growing, statewide initiative to establish a network of high-school based cosmic ray research stations studying extensive air showers.

Applicants for the Assistant Professor position will be expected to expand upon the group's roles in the above experiments, but new initiatives are not excluded. Applicants are required to hold a Ph.D. in physics. Applicants should demonstrate a strong research record that includes at least two years of postdoctoral work in experimental high-energy physics, the potential for independence and leadership in a high-energy experimental group, and a strong interest in undergraduate and graduate teaching.

Questions about the position may be addressed to the Search Committee chair Gregory Snow (gsnow@unlhep.unl.edu). Interested candidates should apply online at http://employment.unl.edu, requisition# 070781. Applications must include a letter of application, curriculum vitae, publication list, and a statement of research interests. In addition, candidates should arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to the Search Committee secretary, Jennifer Becic (jbecic2@unl.edu, Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, 116 Brace Hall, Univ. of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE 68588-0111). The application deadline is January 15, 2008, but the search will continue until a suitable candidate is found.

The University of Nebraska is committed to a pluralistic campus community through affirmative action and equal opportunity and is responsive to the needs of dual career couples.
