Faculty Position: Theoretical High Energy Physics

The Florida State University (FSU) Physics Department invites applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor position in theoretical particle physics, with starting date at the beginning of the Fall semester of 2018. We are seeking candidates who can strengthen the existing areas of interest of the theory group, which include collider phenomenology, with particular emphasis on higher-order perturbative calculations and the exploration of new observables and signatures, effective field theories, model building, and astroparticle physics and cosmology. The particle-physics theory group at Florida State University benefits from a fruitful synergy with members of the local experimental group who participate in the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider. The FSU experimental group has extensive experience in top-quark, Higgs-boson, QCD, and electroweak physics; searches for physics beyond the Standard Model, and hardware development. The synergy extends to other strong groups within the FSU Physics Department, including: astrophysics, with specializations in star formation, supernovae, and the cosmic microwave background; nuclear physics, with overlapping interests in hadronic physics and neutron-star physics; and condensed matter physics, with expertise in field theoretical methods and strongly-correlated fermion systems of relevance to the experimental program at the FSU National High Magnetic Field Laboratory. Applicants should arrange for an electronic copy (PDF) of a cover letter, a curriculum vitae with a list of publications, a research plan, and at least three letters of recommendation to be sent to: hepsearch@hep.fsu.edu. Review of applications will begin on November 17, 2017 and continue until the position is filled.

The Florida State University is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and it especially encourages applications from women and members of minority groups.
