Haverford College invites applications for a Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of Physics to begin Fall 2024, in the area of computational physics, broadly defined

Haverford College invites applications for a tenure-track position as Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy to start in Fall semester 2024. The successful candidate will have a research focus in computational physics, very broadly defined, in an area complementary to existing research in the department. Some examples could include atmosphere/oceanic/climate science, data science, materials science, neuroscience, environmental science, machine learning applications in physics, or quantum computing (this list is given to invite a broad pool of applicants and is not exhaustive).

For more information about Haverford and this position please see here.

Haverford College is steadfastly committed to diversity and access, informed by its longstanding emphasis on social justice, and strongly encourages candidates from backgrounds underrepresented in Physics to apply.

A Ph.D. in Physics or a related field is required (a Ph.D. in Information Technology, Information Science, Data Science, Applied Math, Physical Chemistry, Biophysics, Engineering, or other related fields may be considered for this position, Ph.D. date by September 1, 2024). Postdoctoral experience is desirable.

The successful applicant will be expected to pursue a productive independent research program with undergraduate students, contribute to teaching at all levels of the physics curriculum (including the full breadth of our introductory courses, at least half of the upper-level core curriculum, and our computational physics course), and may contribute new advanced courses in the candidate’s area(s) of expertise. Haverford has an established Scientific Computing Concentration, and contributions to this program will be valued. Engagement with other interdisciplinary initiatives (e.g., environmental studies, neuroscience, or biological physics) is also welcome.

Applicants should submit the following via Interfolio ( ): a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a teaching statement (2-3 pages) that highlights the use of varied pedagogies as well as successes and challenges as a teacher, a research statement that describes both current and planned future research projects and how these will engage undergraduates (2-3 pages), a statement on inclusion and diversity (2-3 pages) describing experience with strategies to create inclusive learning environments that enable students with varying backgrounds and experiences to thrive, and names and contact details for three people able to write letters of recommendation. Haverford College embraces the teacher-scholar model, and candidates are encouraged to list letter writers who, together, can address the candidate’s abilities and promise as a teacher, mentor, and researcher.

Please apply by 11.59 pm ET on Monday, 2nd October 2023, for full consideration.
