Experimental Nuclear Physics Tenured or Tenure-Track Faculty Position

​The University of Washington Department of Physics, in conjunction with its Center for Experimental Nuclear Physics and Astrophysics (CENPA), seeks an outstanding individual for a tenured or tenure-track faculty position in experimental nuclear physics.  Of particular interest are creative candidates specializing in Fundamental Symmetries or Neutrino Physics, who wish to initiate their own research programs at CENPA, or who already have a leadership role in one of the existing Nuclear Physics Long Range Plan priority programs.   Current CENPA faculty are involved in the neutrino mass experiments KATRIN and Project8, the MAJORANA DEMONSTRATOR neutrinoless double beta decay search, high-precision muon g-2 and muon capture experiments, and a sensitive test of He-6 beta decay.  CENPA is the site of the ADMX axion search, and a suite of tabletop gravity experiments.  The lab provides partial support for the Hg-199 EDM search.  The University of Washington is home to the national Institute for Nuclear Theory (INT), which hosts a diverse series of Programs and Workshops, as well as research in a wide variety of nuclear physics areas.  The UW faculty includes groups in both nuclear and particle theory, and in experimental high-energy physics with ATLAS.

Seattle is a culturally diverse urban center.  It has growing racial, ethnic, and immigrant communities.  All qualified applicants will receive full consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, protected veteran or disabled status, or genetic information.  The University of Washington – and the Department of Physics – is committed to building a diverse faculty, staff, and student body and is an Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action employer. 

Applications must be submitted at and should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research interests, and a statement of teaching interests and experience.  Provide names of three individuals from whom letters of reference may be requested. A Ph.D. or foreign equivalent degree will be required by the date of appointment.  Full consideration will be given to applications received by March 1, 2017. Please direct all inquiries to
