The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Rice University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in experimental condensed matter physics, in the general area of quantum materials, including strongly correlated electronic systems and quantum nanostructures. This position will complement our existing strengths in condensed matter and materials physics and quantum degenerate gases. Applicants should send a dossier that includes a curriculum vitae, a statement of research and teaching interests, a list of publications, and two or three selected reprints, and arrange for at least three letters of recommendation to be sent to the Chair of the Condensed Matter Search Committee, Dept. of Physics and Astronomy, MS 61, Rice University, 6100 Main Street, Houston, TX 77005. Review of applications will begin in December, and the appointment is expected to be available July 2007. Rice University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer; women and underrepresented minorities are strongly encouraged to apply.
I hope we get some good candidates! I agree firmly with what a competitor of mine from Cornell once said to me about faculty searches: "I aspire someday to be the dumbest person in my department."
