Job Description:

The Department of Physics at the University of California, Santa Cruz, as part of the Materials Science & Engineering Initiative, invites applications for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position in experimental materials and condensed matter physics at the Assistant or Associate Professor level focusing on novel quantum and advanced functional materials. Specific expertise is sought in synthesis of bulk single crystal (using, e.g., floating zone, flux, vapor transport and other methods) as well as characterization (both structural and physical properties). Candidates with a strong record of publication in the field of quantum and advanced materials and with a strong commitment to research and teaching are especially encouraged to apply. We seek scholars who are seriously committed to applying inclusive undergraduate and graduate mentoring practices, and to applying inclusive teaching practices of undergraduate courses. Candidates with exceptional qualifications may be hired at the Associate Professor level.
The selected candidate is expected to establish a vigorous research program in experimental quantum materials within the Physics Department's condensed matter physics group. The selected candidate will be expected to teach Physics courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels and perform service to the department and university. The selected candidate is also expected to participate in the UC Santa Cruz Materials Science & Engineering Initiative by engaging in collaborative, interdisciplinary research and to engage with a future Materials Science & Engineering graduate program.
UC Santa Cruz is distinguished by our high-impact research and our commitment to diversity, social justice, the environment, and educational opportunity. We are a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI), and an Asian American, Native American, Pacific Islander-Serving Institution (AANAPISI) with a high proportion of first-generation students and Pell recipients. We welcome and encourage applications from candidates who demonstrate a commitment to equity and inclusion through research, teaching, mentoring, community engagement and/or service and that have experience in creating an equitable and diverse scholarly environment. We welcome candidates with demonstrable, or a strong potential to develop, leadership skills, particularly in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. Moreover, at UC Santa Cruz, all these activities will be recognized as important during the faculty promotion process.
UCSC is committed to addressing the holistic needs of faculty. We also welcome applications from those who have had non-traditional career paths, who have taken time off for personal reasons, or who have achieved excellence in careers outside academia.
The chosen candidate will be expected to sign a statement representing that they are not the subject of any ongoing investigation or disciplinary proceeding at their current academic institution or place of employment, nor have they in the past ten years been formally disciplined at any academic institution/place of employment. In the event the candidate cannot make this representation, they will be expected to disclose in writing to the hiring Dean the circumstances surrounding any formal discipline that they have received, as well as any current or ongoing investigation or disciplinary process of which they are the subject. (Note that discipline includes a negotiated settlement agreement to resolve a matter related to substantiated misconduct.)
