The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Iowa State University (ISU) seeks candidates for a faculty position at a junior or senior level in experimental condensed matter physics focused on neutron scattering, inelastic techniques in particular. The principal research areas of interest include correlated electron systems, and the interactions between charge, magnetic and electronic degrees of freedom in condensed matter, complementing strong experimental and theoretical efforts in these areas within the Department and the Ames Laboratory, a National Laboratory operated by ISU for the U.S. Department of Energy. The Department of Physics and Astronomy has active experimental and theoretical research programs in Astronomy/Astrophysics, Condensed Matter Physics, High-Energy Physics, Nuclear Physics, and Biophysics. Teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels will be required. Qualified applicants must have a PhD in physics, or a closely related discipline, strong research experience and enthusiasm for teaching undergraduate and graduate courses.
Applicants with an exceptional record of research publication and demonstrated success in obtaining funding for research will be considered for a tenured senior appointment. Further information about the physical sciences at ISU and the neutron scattering effort at the Ames Laboratory may be found at http://www.physastro.iastate.edu and https://www.ameslab.gov/dmse/bes-projects/lattice-electrons-magnetism. Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, concise summary of prior research and future research plans, and statement regarding teaching philosophy and specific teaching interests. Applications must be submitted online at http://www.iastatejobs.com/postings/7703 by January 31, 2015 to guarantee full consideration.
