As part of a major faculty hiring initiative, the Department of Physics at the University of Florida (UF) seeks a full-time, nine-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor in Condensed Matter Experimental (CME) Physics to begin in August 16, 2019. Highly qualified candidates from all areas of CME physics, including materials physics, device physics, non-linear phenomena, interdisciplinary nanoscience and technology, and low-temperature physics, are encouraged to apply.
Presently, the CME group has a broad range of research activities that span the discipline, with the work complemented by a strong condensed matter theory group. Modern laboratory space and competitive start-up funds will be provided. Facilities for micro/nano-fabrication and characterization are available at the nearby Research Service Centers in the UF Nanoscale Institute. Available resources include machine and electronics shops with experienced technicians and a cryogenic fluids facility. Strong research opportunities exist with the affiliated, on-campus National High Magnetic Field Laboratory High B/T Facility, as do collaborative opportunities with faculty in other UF departments.
The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent), and postdoctoral research experience is expected. Demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching and mentoring a diverse undergraduate and graduate student body, while establishing a well-recognized research program, is essential. The salary is competitive and commensurate with qualifications and experience, and includes a full benefits package.
Applications must be submitted online at https://apply.interfolio.com/55094, and must include: (i) cover letter, (ii) curriculum vitae with full publication list, (iii) statement of research and proposed activities, (iv) statement of teaching philosophy, (v) three confidential letters of recommendation.
To ensure full consideration, applications must be submitted by November 15, 2018 when the committee will begin reviewing applications. Applications received after this date may be considered at the discretion of the committee and/or hiring authority. For more information, please contact Prof. Yoonseok Lee (email@example.com).

About University of Florida
The Department of Physics at the University of Florida has been working to become one of the premier physics departments in the United States. From a small department with 22 faculty members in 1979, we have grown to more than 50 faculty members. The department moved into a new, 225,000 sq. ft., building in January 1998. The building includes laboratory and teaching space designed specifically for the purpose.
The growth has broadened and strengthened the research interests of the department. We have active groups in astrophysics, biological physics, condensed matter physics, and elementary particle physics. Our faculty are internationally renowned in their areas of expertise at the various frontiers of physics and are recipients of numerous awards and honors.
The UF physics department operates the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory together with Florida State University, and Los Alamos National Laboratory, opening new research avenues for the exploration of new emerging materials and technologies. Members of the Department are also involved in many national, multi- institutional programs, such as the Laser Interferometric Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO), and h...igh energy physics experiments conducted at Fermilab, and CERN. Members of the faculty are spokesmen both of LIGO and the CDF experiment at Fermilab, as well as playing leadership roles in the CMS experiment at CERN. The Institute for Fundamental Theory and the Quantum Theory Project provide the infrastructure needed to foster cross-disciplinary research among the theorists in our department.
