Open Post Doctoral Positions
Joint Faculty and Research Scientist Position in Theoretical/Computational Quantum Condensed Matter and Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics
Location: New York, NY
Open Date: Nov 29, 2018
Deadline: Dec 15, 2018 at 11:59 PM Eastern Time
The Department of Physics at New York University, jointly with the Center for Computational Quantum Physics (CCQ) of the Simons Foundation’s Flatiron Institute, invites applications for a position in the general area of theoretical/computational quantum condensed matter and atomic molecular and optical physics. The position is a 50-50 joint appointment between New York University and CCQ, with the appointee spending half of her or his effort in each place. At NYU the opening is at the tenure track Assistant Professor level and, at CCQ, it is at the Associate Research Scientist level. The position is based at the Simons Foundation and NYU offices in New York City. It is expected that, subject to satisfactory progress in research, the Associate Research Scientist Appointment will continue for the duration of the NYU untenured faculty appointment.
A Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field is required, and candidates will typically have 1-6 years of postdoctoral research experience, although more senior candidates may be considered in exceptional circumstances. The responsibilities for this joint position include but are not limited to: establishing a leading research program with a significant computational component; teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels at NYU; contributing to the scientific activities at the Flatiron Institute by assisting with the organization of CCQ-related conferences, workshops group seminars and summer programs, and to supervise research conducted by Flatiron Research Fellows and summer interns.
The holder of this joint appointment may be eligible for consideration for promotion to a full time NYU tenured professorship according NYU's standard policies and procedures. A part time CCQ appointment might also be possible post NYU tenure.

Directed by Antoine Georges and co-directed by Andrew Millis, the CCQ is a leading international center for the study of quantum physics and its applications to condensed matter physics, materials science, chemistry and related fields. The development of the concepts, algorithms and code libraries needed to advance the field is fundamental to the work of the center. The CCQ is expected to grow to about 50 staff members, comprising scientists at various career stages, from recent Ph.Ds. through senior scientists, software engineers and support staff. The institute has a vigorous visitor program and interacts strongly with scientists from neighboring institutions.

Application Instructions In order to be considered for this joint appointment, candidates must submit their application in two places :
The application materials should include a letter describing current and planned research and teaching activities, a curriculum vitae, list of publications. The NYU application should include the names and contact information of three references. The candidate should also have these three references letters emailed directly to CCQ at email@example.com.
Because diversity is important to our institutions, the letter describing research and teaching activities, should include a brief paragraph telling us how diversity figures into the applicant’s past and present teaching, research, community engagement, and/or life experience, as well as how the applicant would bring issues of diversity to bear on the teaching and programming of NYU's Department of Physics.
Review of applications will begin on or about December 15, 2018.
Faculty Position in Quantum Condensed Matter and Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics
The Department of Physics at New York University invites applications for a faculty position in the general area of quantum condensed matter and atomic molecular and optical physics, including research that explores connections to quantum information. The position is part of an initiative for further significant growth in these areas in the Center for Quantum Phenomena in the department.
The openings are for an experimental physicist at the tenure track Assistant Professor level, but more senior candidates may also be considered under exceptional circumstances.

James Arthur Postdoctoral Fellowships, The Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP) at NYU
The Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP) at NYU anticipates awarding a James Arthur Postdoctoral Fellowship to start in September 2018. James Arthur Fellows pursue independent research projects and work with others in the group as their interests dictate. Selection will be based on evidence of the potential to make important contributions in one or more of the following research areas: astrophysics (theoretical and observational), astroparticle physics, cosmology and particle physics. An emphasis will be on applications for individuals who can connect multiple areas of the CCPP. Submitted applications will be also considered for postdoctoral openings supported by individual faculty.
CCPP faculty members generally have broad interests. The following is a list of faculty and their current primary activity: Professors Y. Ali-Haimoud (cosmology), M. Blanton (observational astrophysics; SDSS), K. Cranmer (experimental particle physics; ATLAS), S. Dubovsky (particle theory and cosmology), G. Dvali (particle theory, black holes, cosmology), G. Farrar (particle physics, astrophysics, astroparticle physics, cosmology), G. Gabadadze (particle theory, gravity and cosmology), A. Gruzinov (theoretical astrophysics and cosmology), D. W. Hogg (cosmology, stars, exoplanets), M. Kleban (string theory and cosmology), A. MacFadyen (high energy astrophysics, numerical simulations), M. Modjaz (observational astrophysics, supernovae), M. Porrati (quantum field theory and string theory), A. Pullen (cosmology), J. Ruderman (particle theory), R. Scoccimarro (cosmology), J. Tinker (cosmology) and N. Weiner (particle and astroparticle theory, cosmology). The Center also has close ties with NYU’s Courant Institute and the Center for Data Science.
Postdocs benefit from the lively atmosphere of the Center and a vigorous visitors program. Members of CCPP have data access to the Sloan Digital Sky Survey IV, and the possibility of participating in certain projects of the Palomar Transient Factory collaboration. The Center also has close ties with NYU’s Courant Institute and Center for Data Science, as well as frequent interactions with researchers and visitors at the Simons Center for Computational Astrophysics.
Appointments are usually for three years. Exceptional candidates will be considered for longer term appointments. Those proposing to come with funding from outside fellowships will be eligible for continuation of their appointment. Your complete application must include a CV, publication list, statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation; the names of the people who will be submitting letters of recommendation should be listed in the application. The application should be submitted via below CCPP Online Application System. If you have applied to this position through the Academic Jobs Online system, you don't need to apply here.
In addition to the James Arthur Fellowship, an additional appointment in particle theory, with an emphasis on phenomenology, may be possible, subject to funding.
CCPP strives to further NYU's mission as an institution that welcomes and embraces diversity, and encourages applications from diverse candidates.
Applications received by November 15, 2017 will receive full consideration.
