ASSISTANT PROFESSOR IN PHYSICS AND ASTRONOMY

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of
British Columbia in Vancouver invites applications from outstanding
candidates for a tenure-track Assistant Professor.  Applications in all
relevant subfields are encouraged and the successful candidate will
create an independent research program which complements the existing
strengths of the department such as in Astronomy, Cosmology, Biophysics,
AMO, Medical Physics, Gravity, String, and Quantum Information Theory,
Particle Physics, and Nuclear Physics among others.  More details of our
research program can be found on the Department’s website
(phas.ubc.ca).  Please note that applicants in the field of Condensed
Matter Physics and related subfields represented in the Stuart Blusson
Quantum Matter Institute (see qmi.ubc.ca) should direct their
applications to our parallel search in that area (see
phas.ubc.ca/open-positions).  Candidates must have a Ph.D. Degree or
equivalent, demonstrated potential for an outstanding research record,
and are expected to teach effectively at the undergraduate and graduate
levels and to supervise graduate students. The successful candidate will
be appointed at the level of Assistant Professor.

The Physics and Astronomy Department (www.phas.ubc.ca
<http://www.phas.ubc.ca>)
is one of the largest and most scientifically diverse in Canada. Our
faculty and staff are committed to attracting and training outstanding
students and conducting forefront research that spans the field.

Applicants are urged to submit online applications
<https://secure.phas.ubc.ca/cgi-bin/Jobs/Apply>.
A CV, publications list, a statement of research interests, and a
summary of teaching interests and experience are required. Three letters
of reference should be arranged to be directly submitted, preferably
electronically, to jobs=At=phas.ubc.ca. UBC’s strategic plan identifies
inclusion as one of our key priorities.  We welcome colleagues with the
experiences and competencies that can contribute to our principles of
inclusion, equity, and diversity throughout campus life.  In your
application, please include 2-3 sentences describing your experience
working with a diverse student body and your contributions to
creating/advancing a culture of equity and inclusion on campus or within
your discipline.

Equity and diversity are essential to academic excellence. An open and
diverse community fosters the inclusion of voices that have been
underrepresented or discouraged. We encourage applications from members
of groups that have been marginalized on any grounds enumerated under
the BC Human Rights Code including sex, sexual orientation, gender
identity or expression, racialization, disability, political belief,
religion, marital or family status, age, and/or status as a First
Nation, Metis, Inuit or Indigenous person. All qualified candidates are
encouraged to apply; however, Canadians and permanent residents will be
given priority.

The deadline for receipt of applications is Nov. 30, 2018.  The expected
start date is Summer 2019, but is negotiable.
