Faculty Opening

Quantum Information and Condensed Matter Experiment

The Department of Physics at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications to fill an experimental tenure-track faculty opening at the Assistant Professor level, in the areas of quantum information and condensed matter physics. This is an open search in all areas related to quantum information, simulation, and metrology, as well as condensed matter and quantum materials research. We are particularly interested in candidates who use experimental techniques that overlap with our newly established Center for Quantum Sensors and the Institute for Materials Science and  Engineering. The appointment will begin Fall 2020. Information on our department can be found at physics.wustl.edu.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field at the time of appointment, significant research achievements and an aptitude for teaching physics at graduate and undergraduate levels. Duties will include, but are not limited to: conducting original research and writing for publication, teaching courses, advising students, and service to the Physics Department and University as well as service to the research community. The typical teaching load for research-active faculty is one course per semester on average. Applications should be submitted electronically to quantumsearch@physics.wustl.edu and should consist of a single file in PDF format containing (1) a cover letter, (2) a current resume including publication record, (3) a statement of research interests and plans (up to 4 pages), (4) a teaching, outreach and diversity statement (up to 2 pages), and (5) names and contact information of three references.
