*Tenure Track Professor in Theoretical Biological Physics or Complex
Systems Physics*

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Northwestern University
invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in
all areas of theoretical biological physics and complex systems,
beginning September 1, 2019.

We seek outstanding individuals who will complement and expand the
current activities of the Physics and Astronomy Department
(www.physics.northwestern.edu ) and
will be active members of the broader Northwestern University biological
and complexity communities. Research currently pursued by physics
faculty include soft and biological materials, interfaces between
inorganic and organic surfaces, complex networks in physical and
biological systems, statistical physics of biological molecules,
nonlinear dynamics, modeling of neuronal and intracellular processes
including statistical mechanics of computation and learning,
dynamical and structural properties of complex systems, and
molecular origins of complexity.

Applicants should have a strong record of achievement in research and a
commitment to excellence in undergraduate and graduate teaching in
physics. The ideal candidates will have a Ph.D. in physics or a related
field and will pursue connections with interdisciplinary efforts such as
those promoted by the university’s NIH Biophysics Training Grant, the
NCI-Northwestern Physical Sciences and Oncology Center, the Materials
Research Science and Engineering Center, the Northwestern Institute on
Complex Systems, the Initiative for Sustainability and Energy
at Northwestern, and the NSF-Simons Center for Quantitative Biology.

Interested applicants should submit their curriculum vitae, a list of
publications, and both a research and a teaching statement, and should
