The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge invites candidates to apply for a tenure-track assistant or associate professor in the area of subatomic theory, starting August 2022. Candidates are expected to have an established record in the areas of subatomic theory, nuclear astrophysics, and/or fundamental symmetries, and to build a competitive research program that complements the strengths of our existing programs. These programs include large-scale modeling of nuclear structure, reactions, and electroweak processes, as well as research in experimental nuclear physics, astrophysics, high energy and neutrino physics. The successful candidate will be expected to teach at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and mentor students at all levels.


Required Qualifications: (Both Levels) Ph.D. in physics, subatomic theory, nuclear astrophysics, or a closely related field. (Associate Level) Must have 3 years of related experience.

Preferred Qualifications: (Both Levels) Established research record and leadership in subatomic theory, nuclear astrophysics, or a closely related field. Proven record with large-scale simulations of fundamental processes, quantum computing, and/or synergy with research at leading nuclear physics experimental facilities is desired. (Associate Level) Successful service as an assistant professor or associate professor; strong national reputation.
