Open Faculty Positions
Open Post Doctoral Positions
Assistant Professor in Theoretical Particle Physics
Open Date: September 24, 2020
Deadline: December 1, 2020
The Department of Physics at New York University (NYU) invites applications for a faculty position at the rank of Assistant Professor (tenure track) in theoretical particle physics, beginning in academic year 2021-2022, supported by the Simons Foundation’s Simons Junior Faculty Fellows program and pending budgetary and administrative approval at NYU.
The search area is in quantum field theory, string theory, and gravity. It includes but is not limited to non-perturbative methods, modern amplitude techniques, and quantum information aspects of theories of fundamental interactions. Applicants must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent in physics or a closely related field at the time of appointment, should demonstrate a strong record of accomplishments in physics research, and show promise in teaching as well as in future research. Faculty members at NYU are expected to develop independent, forefront research programs for which they can attract external funding; teach undergraduate- and graduate-level courses; supervise student and postdoc participation in research; and serve in departmental governance.
Interested candidates should apply at https://apply.interfolio.com/79128 with a letter describing current and planned research and teaching activities, a curriculum vita, a list of publications and the names of three references. Review of applications will begin on December 1st, 2020. More information about the Department’s research programs can be found at https://as.nyu.edu/physics.html.
Because equity and inclusion is important to our institution, in their research and teaching statement applicants should address what they have done to promote diversity and inclusion in teaching, research, and/or community engagement. Applicants are invited to share how issues of equity and inclusion have impacted their lives, as well as how the applicant would bring these perspectives to bear on the teaching and programming of the NYU Department of Physics.
The Faculty of Arts and Science at NYU is at the heart of a leading research university that spans the globe. We seek scholars of the highest caliber, who embody the diversity of the United States as well as the global society in which we live. We strongly encourage applications from women, members of racial and ethnic minorities, and other individuals who are under-represented in the profession, across color, creed, race, ethnic and national origin, physical ability, gender and sexual identity, or any other legally protected basis. NYU affirms the value of differing perspectives on the world as we strive to build the strongest possible university with the widest reach.

Postdoc Position with Professor Ali-Haïmoud
Professor Yacine Ali-Haïmoud anticipates hiring a postdoctoral associate to start in September 2021, for a duration of up to three years, subject to funding availability. The postdoc selection will be primarily based on the potential for fruitful research collaboration with Prof. Ali-Haïmoud, as well as demonstrated research independence and productivity. The selected postdoc will benefit from the lively and broad scientific atmosphere at the Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP), and will be encouraged to interact with its other faculty members, postdocs, and students. Women, people of color, and members from groups that are traditionally under-represented in physics are most strongly encouraged to apply.
Job Summary: Conduct research independently and in collaboration with Prof. Ali-Haïmoud, give and help organize seminars on research, participate in the intellectual life of CCPP.
Qualifications: The applicant must have a Ph.D. degree in Physics or equivalent before the start of employment with less than 5 years of postdoctoral experience at the start of employment. To apply, please apply on AJO https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/16865. The application will only be accepted if submitted via the online form.
Application materials and deadline: Applicants must submit a curriculum vitae and list of publications, a research statement (2 pages maximum, in 12pt font size), and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be submitted. The application deadline is December 1st, 2020.

Q-MEEN-C John von Neumann Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow
A Q-MEEN-C John von Neumann Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow position is available in Prof. Andy Kent’s group in the Center for Quantum Phenomena of the Department of Physics. The aim of the research is to study spin oscillators based on quantum materials, transition metal oxides with competing electronic phases (e.g. metal/insulating, magnetic/non-magnetic, etc.) with applications to neuromorphic computing. The successful candidate will characterize spin oscillators using high-speed/frequency electrical test stands and fabricate appropriate samples using electron beam lithography. He/she will also model oscillator characteristics toward their use in neuromorphic circuits. Experience with electronic transport, magnetic measurements, magnetic materials, microwave techniques, micromagnetic modeling and nanofabrication is desirable. The candidate will work with a multi-university/national lab team at UCSD, UIUC, NIST and CNRS/Thales with expertise in quantum materials, thin film growth and characterization methods and theory. Good communication and interpersonal skills are essential.
Funding for this position is from a Department of Energy, Energy Frontier Research Center, at the University of California San Diego entitled “Quantum Materials for Energy Efficient Neuromorphic Computing (QMEENC).”
Conduct research and perform experiments; analyze data; prepare and present reports of the results of your research and experiments; assist and supervise the work of other lab members.
Ph.D. in Physics, Applied Physics or Electrical Engineering, within 0-5 years of post-PhD training.
