Job position at Duke University. Deadline is on

Assistant Professor


Job summary
The Department of Physics at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina invites applications and nominations for a tenure-track position at the assistant professor level in observational or theoretical astrophysics/cosmology. The physics department is committed to building an inclusive faculty and representative of our community. For this reason, we strongly encourage applicants who come from groups that are historically underrepresented in physics departments. 

The successful candidate should demonstrate a strong previous research record and be ready to lead an independent research effort. They should also be committed to teaching, facilitating learning, and acting as a mentor and advisor for research. While the search is not focused on a particular branch of astrophysics/cosmology, applicants are encouraged to discuss how their work can be complementary to the department's existing efforts with the Rubin Observatory, the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration (DESC), the Dark Energy Survey (DES), and the Nancy Grace Roman Space Telescope program. Current strengths in the department include large-scale structure and weak gravitational lensing, and various transient studies, mainly focused on supernova cosmology. The Duke cosmology group continues to grow and expand. In addition to this search, the department is also currently soliciting applications for a research assistant professor with a focus on wide-field cosmology using imaging data. 
Tip: To strengthen your application consider posting a video-summary of your most exciting research.
