7th February 2017 : Tenure-track theoretical physics at Emory University

Dear Colleague,

Hope everything is well with you.

I am writing to attract your attention to the open junior tenure track
faculty position in Theoretical Physics at Emory University. I recognize
that it is somewhat late in the faculty search season. The position has
just opened for the reasons beyond our control, so it would be extremely
helpful if you can let your present/past group members and/or colleagues
know about this position. We are searching quite broadly for a theorist
in any research area who could benefit from or complement the existing
efforts in our Department in electronic, optical, and spin systems, soft
condensed matter, biological physics, nonlinear and statistical physics,
energy-related and complex materials, and computational physics.

This position is a part of the vigorous expansion recently undertaken by
the Physics Department at Emory. Within the last six years, we have
significantly expanded our graduate and undergraduate programs,
established a new research group in materials, nanoscience and optics,
and hired seven junior faculty; two of them received NSF CAREER awards,
one Cottrell Scholarship, and one Research Frontiers Award. We are
expecting to continue expanding our program at a similar rate in the
next several years. Therefore, we believe that the currently open
position presents an excellent career opportunity for candidates with a
potential for excellence in research and scientific independence.

Detailed information about the application requirements is posted online
at http://www.physics.emory.edu/news/search2017.html, and the
application can be accessed at https://apply.interfolio.com/40524.
Please let me or the Chair of the search, Sergei Urazdhin
(surazhd@emory.edu ), know if you have any
questions about this position.

Thank you,

Justin C. Burton
