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; 
Plasma Physics; Elementary Particle Physics; Cosmology; or Nuclear 
Physics. Both theorists and experimentalist are invited to apply.

The department has well-established research programs in Astrophysics, 
Atomic and Molecular Physics, Biophysics, Condensed Matter and 
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.

Located in Pennsylvania's scenic Lehigh Valley, the campus is situated 
on 1,600 acres in close proximity to both New York City and 
Philadelphia. Lehigh is a premier residential research university, 
ranked in the top tier of national research universities each year. 
Lehigh University is a coeducational, nondenominational, private 
university that offers a distinct academic environment of undergraduate 
and graduate students from across the globe.

Lehigh is a recipient of the 2006 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Faculty 
Career Flexibility and a 2010 National Science Foundation ADVANCE 
Institutional Transformation Award to increase the advancement of women 
faculty in science, engineering, and math (see 
http://advance.cc.lehigh.edu <http://advance.cc.lehigh.edu/>). Lehigh 
provides a wide range of networking, mentoring and development 
opportunities for early-career faculty, and is a leader in promoting 
work-life balance (see 
<http://www.lehigh.edu/%7Einprv/faculty/worklifebalance.html>). Lehigh 
offers excellent benefits, including domestic-partner benefits, and is a 
founding member of the Lehigh Valley Inter-Regional Networking & 
Connecting Consortium to assist highly qualified couples who face the 
dual career challenge.

Applicants should include a cover letter describing their area of 
expertise and major contributions, curriculum vitae, publication list, 
the names and affiliations of three references, a statement of research 
interests, a statement of teaching interests, and a statement on 
diversity. The diversity statement might include (but is not limited to) 
the applicant's experience and vision regarding diversity issues such as 
recruitment, inclusion, retention, mentoring, and serving as role models 
for students from underrepresented groups. All materials should be 
uploaded to the website https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/4563 and
