6th September 2019 : Tenure-Track Faculty Position at Harvey Mudd College

The Department of Physics of Harvey Mudd College, one of the Claremont
Colleges, has an opening for a tenure-track appointment at the assistant
professor level, beginning August 2020. The department
(https://physics.hmc.edu/) has thirteen full-time members; we graduate
about 20 physics majors each year, most of whom go on to Ph.D. programs
in physics and related fields.

We seek an experimental, theoretical, or computational physicist with
broad intellectual interests who can excel at teaching outstanding
undergraduates and who can establish an active research program
involving undergraduates. Current areas of research in the department
include biophysics, quantum and nonlinear optics, condensed matter
physics, soft matter physics, geophysics, semiconductor physics and the
environment, theoretical astrophysics and observational astronomy and
cosmology, string theory, general relativity, and theoretical particle
physics. Although we welcome applications from outstanding candidates
regardless of subfield, we are particularly interested in a candidate
who can develop a vibrant research program in AMO physics or condensed
matter theory.

The department and the college place a high value on engaging students
from a broad range of backgrounds, and candidates with a demonstrated
commitment to reaching a diverse student body and broadening
participation in physics are especially encouraged to apply.

For full consideration, applications should be received by *1* *November
2019*, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
On-campus interviews will include both teaching an upper-division
physics class and presenting a research colloquium. Applicants should
apply online (using the AcademicJobsOnline.org website,
https://AcademicJobsOnline.org/ajo
), where they should submit:  (1) a
curriculum vitæ; (2) a statement of teaching experience and interests;
(3) a statement addressing the candidate’s experience with and interest
in teaching and mentoring students from diverse backgrounds; (4) a
statement of research interests that describes how undergraduates would
be involved in the proposed research; and (5) three letters of
reference, at least one of which addresses teaching ability or
potential.  Please address the cover letter to *Professor Theresa W.
Lynn, Chair, Department of Physics, Harvey Mudd College, Claremont, CA
91711*.

/Harvey Mudd College enthusiastically welcomes applications from
talented individuals from all cultural backgrounds.  The College is an
