Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Physics and Astronomy at Trinity University

                Trinity University invites applications for the position of tenure-track Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy, to begin in August 2015.  Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Physics or a closely related field.  Demonstrated success in teaching undergraduates is also desirable.  The successful candidate will be dedicated to undergraduate teaching, establish a research program that includes participation by highly motivated and capable undergraduates, and oversee the department's rooftop telescope observatory.  Candidates in experimental, theoretical, or computational research, particularly in the areas of astronomy, astrophysics, or cosmology, are encouraged to apply.

                The Department of Physics and Astronomy (http://new.trinity.edu/academics/departments/physics-astronomy) currently has six faculty members and attracts outstanding undergraduates into its program.  Active research areas include experimental and computational biophysics, magnetospheric space physics, dynamics and pattern formation in soft matter and biological systems, gravitational-wave interferometry, nanomaterials/plasmonics, and quantum mechanics of few-body systems.  The department's majors are among the most talented in the university, winning numerous Goldwater and NSF Graduate Fellowships, and many attend top-ranked graduate schools.  Many opportunities exist for interdisciplinary interactions in the sciences, math and engineering.

                Trinity University (http://www.trinity.edu) is an independent, coeducational, selective, primarily undergraduate institution with high-quality science, liberal arts, and pre-professional programs.  Trinity is among the national leaders in percentage of graduates who earn doctorates in the sciences.  Undergraduate enrollment is about 2500, with students from all areas of the U.S. and many foreign countries.  The attractive campus overlooks downtown San Antonio, a large, vibrant city with many cultural opportunities. 

                Applicants must submit a curriculum vitae, detailed statements of experience and interests in both teaching and research (including a description of opportunities for student research participation), and may submit other materials of their choice.  Applicants must also arrange to have at least three letters of reference sent to the Search Committee.  In order to receive full, first-review consideration, complete application materials and letters of reference should be received at the following address by November 1, 2014.
