The Institute of Physics at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile invites applications for tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level, to start as early as August 2019. A Ph.D. degree in Physics (or closely related areas) is required and postdoctoral experience is highly desirable. The open positions are in the following areas:
i) High Energy Physics: we are looking for an experimental particle physicist who will be able to take a leading role in our ongoing activities in the ATLAS experiment. Applicants who could also help maintain our current effort in neutrino physics with the JUNO experiment are particularly encouraged to apply.
ii) Mathematical Physics: we are looking for candidates having the potential of interaction with the established research areas in Mathematical Physics at the institute such as Analysis, PDE, Quantum Physics, and Non-linear Physics.
iii) Medical Physics: we are looking for candidates with a strong background and research expertise in the field.
iv) Quantum Optics & Photonics: we are looking for strong candidates with theoretical or experimental research expertise in either of the following fields: photonics, nano-photonics, non-linear optics, optical metrology, novel laser technologies and similar topics.
v) Plasma Physics: we are looking for candidates having a proven background or research expertise in experimental plasma physics in any of the following areas: Pulsed power Zpinch plasmas, high energy density physics, radiofrequency discharges, laser-produced plasmas, atmospheric and other non-Maxwellian plasmas or plasma diagnostics. Candidates performing theoretical and/or computer modeling research related to some of the previously mentioned experiments are also welcome.
The successful candidates are expected to establish a leading research program as well as to teach in Spanish at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Applications must include two recommendation letters, curriculum vitae, list of publications, and statements of past and proposed research and teaching interests. The two recommendation letters must be sent separately to the application’s e-mail address. All the documents should be sent by email before April 30, 2019 to the Head of the Search Committee at email@example.com.
