a closely related field is required, along with the ability to teach a
range of traditional undergraduate physics courses in addition to
specialized courses. Candidates are sought who have highly visible
research achievements and who have a strong aptitude for teaching and
mentoring students at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The
appointment will begin Fall 2017. Information on our department can be
