The Department of Physics at the University of Chicago, together with research institutes and centers including the Enrico Fermi Institute and the James Franck Institute, is conducting an open search at the rank of Assistant Professor.

The University of Chicago has an inherently crosscutting and interdisciplinary structure that is very supportive of newly emerging research opportunities and is open to the possibility of joint appointments between departments.
We welcome all qualified applicants and particularly welcome applicants who come from groups that are underrepresented in physical science such as women, black/African American, American Indian or Alaskan Native, Hispanic/Latino scholars, individuals with disabilities and protected veterans. Successful female applicants will be considered for a Clare Boothe Luce Professorship supported by the Henry Luce Foundation (http://www.hluce.org/files/documents/cbl-prog-uidelines.pdf). Review of applications will begin on November 1, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.
At the time of hire the successful candidate must have completed all requirements for a Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field.
Applicants must apply online through the University of Chicago academic careers website apply.interfolio.com/67203 . Required applicant materials are a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement of research, a statement of teaching philosophy, and contact information for at least three references.
