The Department of Physics at the University of Notre Dame invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in theoretical nuclear physics.

The nuclear theory group at the University of Notre Dame currently includes three faculty members with broad interests in the areas of nuclear astrophysics and ab initio approaches to nuclear structure. Group members actively collaborate with local observers, experimentalists, and theorists and enjoy a close connection to the Notre Dame Nuclear Science Laboratory, an on-campus accelerator facility focused on fundamental and applied low energy nuclear physics (https://isnap.nd.edu).

We seek faculty members committed to developing and sustaining an environment of inclusive excellence in research, teaching, and service. The successful candidate must demonstrate the ability to develop a highly successful research program, attract independent research funding, teach effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate levels, and engage with students from diverse backgrounds. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent advanced degree. Salary and rank will be commensurate with the successful applicant’s experience and research accomplishments. The expected start date is August 2022.

The Department of Physics at Notre Dame has 40 tenured and tenure-track faculty; another 21 research, teaching and concurrent faculty; more than 100 graduate students; and about 120 undergraduate physics majors. Additional information about the department and the College of Science can be found at http://physics.nd.edu and http://science.nd.edu respectively.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, list of publications, detailed research plans, and a statement of teaching and mentoring. Candidates must also arrange for at least three letters of recommendation. Review of completed applications will begin on December 31, 2021, and applications will not be accepted after January 17, 2022.

The Department is committed to diversifying its faculty and encourages applications from women and members of traditionally underrepresented groups.
