Faculty Position in Experimental Nuclear Science at Michigan State University

Michigan State University (MSU) is seeking outstanding candidates for a faculty position in experimental nuclear science. MSU is establishing the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB) as the leading rare isotope scientific user facility for the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science and is operating the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL) as a world-class laboratory for nuclear science with funding from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF).

The successful candidate is expected to establish a successful, internationally recognized research program that complements ongoing research efforts and that takes advantage of the capabilities of NSCL now and FRIB in the future. Research at NSCL addresses key questions concerning the creation of the elements in the cosmos, the limits of nuclear stability, the production and properties of nuclei with very unusual neutron-to-proton ratios, the equation of state of neutron-rich nuclear matter as it may exist inside neutron stars, as well as tests of fundamental symmetries and the search for interactions beyond the standard model. New areas of research include harvesting of long-lived isotopes for societal applications and other technical innovations.

Faculty appointments will be in the FRIB/NSCL faculty system at a rank commensurate with experience. FRIB/NSCL faculty members typically have joint appointments in an MSU academic department, such as Physics and Astronomy or Chemistry, where they are expected to teach courses and supervise graduate students. Details about FRIB/NSCL faculty appointments are provided at: www.hr.msu.edu/documents/facacadhandbooks/NSCLFacPos.htm.

The search committee will begin reviewing applications starting January 5, 2016. Applicant packets should include a cover letter addressed to the Experimental Nuclear Science Faculty Search Committee, a CV that includes a list of publications and talks, a research plan of no more than two pages, and the names and email addresses of at least three references. Application materials should be emailed to careers AT frib.msu.edu

MSU is committed to achieving excellence through cultural diversity. The University actively encourages applications and/or nominations of women, persons of color, veterans and persons with disabilities.

MSU is an Affirmative Action, Equal Opportunity Employer.
