Computational Physics or Computational Materials Science Faculty Job Posting
(Department of Nanoscience)

The Nanoscience Department at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro seeks to hire a tenure track faculty member at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor in Computational Nanoscience. The Department of Nanoscience is a dynamic and transdisciplinary department that is graduate-only and research-intensive. The Department of Nanoscience offers several graduate degree programs including Ph.D.’s in Nanoscience with concentrations in Synthetic Biology and in Advanced Materials; a thesis-based MS; and a Professional MS in collaboration with the Bryan School of Business and Economics. The department is located within the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering, an institution joined between the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and North Carolina A&T State University.

Applicants who work in the field of computational physics or computational materials science and can complement, collaborate, and grow current research efforts in the department to build a strong computational nanoscience research program are welcome to apply. Of particular interest are those whose research programs will focus on solid-state physics, quantum computing, condensed matter physics, the development of computer-based mathematical models (machine learning) for understanding, analyzing and predicting the behavior or properties of systems relevant to nanoscience and nanotechnology, and develop algorithms and simulation tools to advance the state of the art in multi-physics simulation for a large variety of physical processes in 2D and 3D, where problems are not well defined; however applicants with strong background in solid state physics and working in the field of computational nanoscience, broadly defined will be considered. Qualified applicants will have an earned PhD in a relevant science discipline such as materials science and engineering, physics, computational mathematics, or more of these specialized fields: physics, mathematics, engineering, or related field or the equivalent combination of education and related experience and have at least two years of postdoctoral training. Competitive candidates will have an excellent record of research as demonstrated by their publication record and exhibit great promise of extramural funding or have an established record of extramural funding. New faculty will be expected to develop an externally supported research program, teach effectively at the graduate level, collaborate with researchers in the Joint School of Nanoscience & Nanoengineering as well as with researchers in their field, and participate in Departmental and University service activities, with opportunities at the Joint School to engage in entrepreneurial activities.
