Georgia State University
Assistant or Associate Professor in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Georgia State University (GSU) is recruiting an experimental condensed matter physicist for fall 2018 in research areas that complement current departmental strengths. The position is at the assistant professor level, although a hire at the associate professor level can be considered for a candidate with an outstanding track record of scientific research and funding.

With a commitment to excellence in teaching, the new departmental hire will develop an independent externally funded research program, work closely with existing faculty members on collaborative research, and help develop research proposals in departmental focus areas that include nanoplasmonics, nanophotonics, nanobiophysics, spintronics, ultrafast optics, 2D materials, materials growth, and device/detector development. More information on the department and its research can be found at Information on GSU’s Center for Nano-Optics (CeNO) can be found at

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field and postdoctoral research experience. Applications should include 1) a curriculum vitae with a publication list, 2) a statement of research interests describing how the proposed research will complement existing research efforts, 3) a statement of teaching philosophy and experience, and 4) contact information for at least three references.
