Assistant Professor Tenure-Track or Associate Professor (theory of time-resolved ultrafast dynamics and solid-state spectroscopy of materials) at Louisiana State University, USA

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Louisiana State University (LSU) invites applications for an Assistant Professor in the general area of theory of time-resolved ultrafast dynamics and solid-state spectroscopy of materials with applications to quantum devices, broadly construed. The anticipated starting date for the position is August 15, 2024. An appointment at the assistant professor level is expected; exceptionally well-qualified candidates may be considered for an associate professor tenure-track position.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, non-equilibrium driven dynamics of charges and spins, spatiotemporal control of materials properties in bulk and in nanostructures by short/strong light pulses, and ultrafast materials design with classical and quantum light. We are particularly interested in applicants who can synergistically bridge our current strengths in theoretical and experimental materials science, ultrafast AMO theory, quantum technology and computation, and who can also contribute to collaborative research with other Departments and Colleges on LSU campus.

The successful candidate is expected to establish a strong nationally competitive and externally funded research program, to mentor young scientists, and to provide effective teaching of the physics curriculum at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Provide service to the department and mentor students at all levels.
