The Department of Physics at St. Olaf College invites applications for a full-time, tenure track position in theoretical physics at the Assistant Professor level to begin in August 2020. They are looking for candidates who demonstrate potential for excellence in teaching physics in a liberal arts setting as well as excellence in theoretical physics research that substantively involves participation by undergraduate students.

Postdoctoral research, industry experience, and/or prior teaching experience are desirable additional qualifications.

The Department is particularly interested in applicants who will continue to contribute to their diverse community and to the department’s effort to increase access and opportunities for student populations that are currently underrepresented in physics. They request that in the letter of application, candidates address their potential to contribute to the St. Olaf community that maintains a diversity of people and perspectives as one of its core values. They strongly encourage applications from members of underrepresented groups.
