ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF PHYSICS NOTICE OF FILING
Job posting number: #7071035
Posted: October 15, 2020
Application Deadline: Open Until Filled
Job DescriptionPOSITION SUMMARY:
The Department of Physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison seeks applicants for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position beginning August, 2020.
UW-Madison is the home institution to the IceCube Neutrino Observatory. With its first two years of data, IceCube discovered a flux of cosmic neutrinos in 2013. A multimessenger campaign triggered by a high-energy IceCube neutrino pinpointed the first cosmic ray accelerator, a supermassive black hole. Initial funding is in place to prepare and design the next-generation detector that will constitute the neutrino component for future multimessenger astronomy. By detecting neutrinos with energies ranging from a few GeV to 10,000 TeV, the instrument also provides excellent opportunities to study neutrinos themselves. We are therefore seeking applications from outstanding scientists interested in using IceCube data to advance research in neutrino astronomy and neutrino physics. These positions will also provide the opportunity to help lead construction of the IceCube Upgrade, now under way, and in the design of the next-generation detector. Candidates will collaborate closely with colleagues in the Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center, the Department of Physics, and the Department of Astronomy.
The candidate will be expected to perform teaching at all levels. Undergraduate and graduate classroom and individual instruction as well as supervision of graduate thesis research are required. Candidate will be expected to conduct high-impact scholarly research as well as provide service to the department, college, university and academic community nationally or internationally.
