Open Level Faculty Position - High Energy Phenomenology
The Department of Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara invites applications for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position at the level of Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor. The Department is seeking candidates working in theoretical particle physics, with a preferred emphasis on phenomenology.
Information about the Department and its research activities may be found at the department's website: http://www.physics.ucsb.edu. Theorists in the Department benefit from close connections with the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics.
Responsibilities of faculty members generally include the development of an actively funded research program of the highest quality; teaching at undergraduate and/or graduate levels; recruitment, supervision, and mentorship of graduate students; and participation in university service and professional activities. The University is especially interested in candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of the academic community through research, teaching, and service as appropriate to the position. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are among the university's core values, and we look forward to welcoming ambitious and creative colleagues who will contribute to the university's mission.
In 2023-24, UC Santa Barbara departments are partnering with the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to launch a special faculty recruitment initiative named after Benjamin Banneker, the 18th-century African-American mathematician, astronomer, antiracist, engineer, ecologist, and peace advocate. Funded by an Advancing Faculty Diversity grant from the UC Office of the President, the Banneker Initiative proposes to hire scientists, engineers, and interdisciplinary scholars as UCSB faculty, whose disciplinary and interdisciplinary work shares Banneker’s concerns as an African American scientist, especially his desire to advance scientific and engineering knowledge for the public good.
With the goal of creating a diverse community around such concerns, applicants may be eligible to be fellows in the Benjamin Banneker Initiative. The community of Banneker Fellows will receive funding for cohort building and professional development activities, including enrollment in the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity Faculty Success Program, proposal writing training, and seed grants.
