General Description / Primary Purpose
The Department of Physics at the University of North Florida (UNF) is seeking applications for a tenure-track faculty position at the assistant professor level to start in August 2022. We are primarily interested in candidates whose research is in physics education research. Exceptional candidates from all areas of physics may be considered. The successful candidate will be able to excel at teaching courses throughout the physics curriculum, conduct externally funded research involving undergraduate students, and be committed to increasing the participation of women and underrepresented minorities in STEM fields. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in physics or a related field. Postdoctoral research experience is preferred. Start-up funds and research space are available for this position.  
 
UNF offers a bachelor’s degree in physics and has recently launched an interdisciplinary master’s degree program in Materials Science and Engineering. The standard teaching load for tenure-track faculty is three courses per semester. UNF is a Carnegie Community Engaged institution, a designation that recognizes the University’s collaboration with community partners from the local to the global level. Following the teacher-scholar model, UNF faculty are expected to maintain the highest standards of academic excellence in all phases of instruction, research/scholarship/creative activity, and service. Not including this position, the Physics Department’s faculty consists of six condensed matter experimentalists, one condensed matter theorist, three astrophysicists, and five lecturers. We are a PhysTEC member, a past host of CUWiP, and participants in the APS-IDEA Network. There are active collaborations between the department and the College of Education and Human Services in the pursuit of external funding. The department is engaged in several curricular reforms: studio physics, computation in upper-level courses, and ISLE-based techniques in our lower-level labs. More information can be found on the department website (www.unf.edu/coas/physics/ ).
