York University - Department of Physics and Astronomy
DEPARTMENT OF PHYSICS AND ASTRONOMY Tenure-Track Faculty Positions in Theoretical Physics The Department of Physics and Astronomy at York University in Toronto invites applications for two tenure-track positions in the fields of theoretical high-energy physics and theoretical atomic physics at the Assistant Professor level, effective July 1, 2008. We are searching for highly qualified candidates with a strong record of research. The department is particularly interested in theory relevant to high-energy colliders and/or related phenomenology, light-matter interactions in ultra-cold gases, atom optics and tests of fundamental symmetries. The successful candidates will be expected to develop strong, externally funded research programs and to contribute to teaching physics courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The successful candidates must have a Ph.D. and be eligible for prompt appointment to the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Current areas of research in theoretical physics in the Department of Physics and Astronomy include lattice gauge theory, QCD phenomenology and the interactions of atoms with ions and laser fields. The department is involved in high-energy experimental programs at CERN, DESY and Fermilab. The department is also involved in experiments to produce and study anti-hydrogen, laser cooling and atom trapping. Further information about the Department and the University can be found at our website: All York University positions are subject to budgetary approval. The review of applications will commence on December 1st, 2007. Applicants should forward a curriculum vitae, an outline of their research plans and single copies of three publications, and arrange for three reference letters to be sent to: Chair, Search Committee Department of Physics and Astronomy 128 Petrie Science and Engineering Bldg.
