Deadline:  2016-11-30

Location:  Montclair, New Jersey, USA

Dear Colleagues,

The Mathematical Sciences Department (which includes Physics) at Montclair State University has three openings for tenure-track or tenured positions. The first position is in physics or astronomy. The second is in applied mathematics (but includes areas relevant to some physicists). The third is for a department chairperson and is open to experienced researchers in any area of physics or mathematics.

Montclair State is in northern New Jersey, about 15 miles west of Manhattan. We are New Jersey’s second largest university, and have recently been designated as a Hispanic-serving institution and a Research-3 Doctoral University in the Carnegie classification. The normal teaching load for research-active faculty is ~18 credits per year (distributed over two semesters). A typical physics course varies from 3 credits (lecture only) to ~7.2 credits (48-person lecture + two lab sections).

Feel free to contact Marc Favata (marc.favata[AT] for additional information about the university or the positions listed below.

1. Tenure-track position in Physics [deadline 1 December 2016]:

Applications are invited for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in Physics. Priority will be given to a physicist or astronomer with expertise in experiment, instrumentation, or data analysis. Applications from all areas of fundamental physics or astronomy are welcome to apply. We are especially, but not solely, interested in candidates with expertise in gravitational physics, atomic physics, nuclear or particle physics, exoplanets or solar system astronomy, radio astronomy, quantum computing, biophysics, and statistical physics. The ideal candidate will have a broad knowledge of experimental physics and will be able to directly involve undergraduates in hands-on laboratory research.

2. Tenure-track position in Applied Mathematics [deadline 30 November 2016]:

Applications are invited for a tenure-track position at the Assistant Professor level in Applied Mathematics. Exceptionally qualified candidates may be considered at higher rank. Preference will be given to candidates with potential to engage with and reinforce the following active areas of research by current faculty: applied dynamical systems, computational fluid dynamics, computational modeling, mathematical biology and medical imaging. However, strong candidates in all areas of applied mathematics will be considered.

3. Department chairperson [deadline 18 November 2016]:

The Department of Mathematical Sciences at Montclair State University seeks applicants for a tenured-faculty position at the associate or full professor rank to serve as the Department Chairperson. The successful candidate will provide leadership for the Department by promoting the development of research activities and educational programs, effective handling of administrative responsibilities, as well as by articulating the Department’s scientific and educational mission within the University and to the broader community. In addition to the requisite academic qualifications, candidates should have excellent communication and interpersonal skills as well as a demonstrated ability to manage administrative functions in an academic environment. Applicants must have a doctoral degree in a field related to the disciplines represented within the Department of Mathematical Sciences, and a sustained record of research activity that includes scholarly publications as well as a record of securing and successfully managing externally funded grant awards. In addition, the applicant must show evidence of effective teaching, mentoring students in research, as well as strong administrative and leadership experience.
