The Department of Physics at Lehigh University invites applications for
a tenure track position at the Assistant Professor Level beginning in
August 2015. Lehigh University and the Physics Department have a strong
commitment to the inclusion and engagement of our growing population of
culturally diverse students. Therefore, we particularly seek candidates
who will successfully serve as mentors and role models for students
belonging to groups that are currently underrepresented in physics.
Successful candidates will have a PhD in Physics and a strong interest
in an academic career combining research and teaching at both the
undergraduate and graduate levels. Preferably, candidates should have
strong interest and expertise in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics;

The department has well-established research programs in Astrophysics,

Nanophysics, Nonlinear Optics and Photonics, Plasma Physics, and
Statistical Physics and is looking for candidates who will expand the
breadth of our current research offerings. The department is undergoing
a major period of transformation and we expect 5-7 faculty positions
will become available in the next 10 years.
