FYI: Experimental nuclear physics at George Washington University. Happy holidays! Ania

The Department of Physics at The George Washington University invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position beginning as early as Fall 2019 in Experimental
Nuclear Physics. The search is open to all areas of experimental nuclear physics, with a focus on Jefferson Lab and the Electron Ion Collider (EIC).

SCHOOL/DEPARTMENT INFORMATION:  Our highly collegial Department of 19 tenure-line and 21 total faculty offers degrees at the BA, BS, MS and PhD level. We have three major research
strands in nuclear physics, biophysics, and observational astrophysics, with burgeoning programs in photonics theory and complexity and data science, applying physics techniques in
unconventional arenas. The nuclear physics group is composed of 10 faculty (8 tenured): 4 theory; 4 experiment; and two in Lattice Gauge Theory. We have ongoing experimental programs
at Jefferson Lab in Halls B & D; at MAMI’s A2 tagged photon facility in Germany; HIGS at Duke University; and the Paul Scherer Institute in Switzerland, which benefit from very close
collaboration between the theorists and experimentalists on all projects.
We have a moderately sized undergraduate population which is growing in both size and diversity, and a growing graduate population. The department is mainly housed in the newly
renovated Corcoran Hall, with two new state-of-the-art classrooms, fully equipped for classes delivered in modern pedagogical modes. In addition, we have two mixed-use labs which are
used for both undergraduate and graduate research projects, with facilities for detector testing. All physics faculty additionally have access to the core facilities in the newly
constructed 250,000 ft2 Science and Engineering Hall, containing a state-of-the-art imaging suite and Class 100 nanofabrication/cleanroom facility (https://nic.gwu.edu<https://nic.gwu.edu/>). For
larger-scale projects, laboratory space at the Virginia Science and Technology Campus can be used. GW’s downtown DC location affords ready access to many national resources such as
NIST and NASA, and close proximity to many organizations such as DOE and NSF.

SPECIFIC DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:  The successful candidate will be expected to develop a highly active, externally-funded research program at Jefferson Lab and be involved in the
development, construction, and implementation of the EIC. The successful candidate is expected to advance the vision and reputation of the University and the Department as a leading
global research University and is expected to demonstrate a commitment to excellence in teaching at the graduate and undergraduate level. The successful candidate will contribute more
broadly to the life of the department in the areas of mentoring, undergraduate research, diversity and inclusion initiatives, and alumni engagement.

BASIC QUALIFICATIONS:   Applicant must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in Physics or a related field by date of appointment. Applicant must have two years postdoctoral or equivalent
experience by date of appointment.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE:  Please complete an online faculty application at http://www.gwu.jobs/postings/63683 and upload a cover letter, curriculum vitae, publication list, and
statements of research, teaching, and service interests. Please have three letters of recommendation sent by the referees to physsearch at gwu.edu<mailto:physsearch at gwu.edu>. A list of anticipated referees should
be appended to the cover letter. Review of applications will begin January 18, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled. Only complete applications will be considered.
