Senior-Level Faculty Position in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics

University of California Riverside

Department of Physics and Astronomy University of California, Riverside

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of California, Riverside ( invites applications for one tenured appointment at the Associate or Full Professor level in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics with an anticipated start date of July 1, 2025.

Candidates must possess a PhD in Physics; preference will be given to candidates with a demonstrated record of outstanding research in Condensed Matter Physics with an emphasis on quantum materials and devices. Successful candidates should have a proven track record of establishing an outstanding and well-funded research program involving students and postdoctoral scientists in forefront areas of quantum materials and devices, including but not limited to synthesis of quantum materials in the form of bulk crystals or thin films and heterostructures, and experimental study of novel physical properties of nanoscale electronic devices. This senior appointment is expected to complement our existing strength in the areas of spintronics, 2D-materials, nanoelectronics, and related fields, actively collaborate with the condensed matter theory faculty in our department and materials science and engineering faculty across the campus and organize multi-principal investigator research teams for extramural funding. The appointment is also expected to support the training of students of diverse backgrounds and teach at both undergraduate and graduate levels. UCR has excellent infrastructures to support cutting-edge materials science research such as recently expanded and upgraded cleanrooms for nanofabrication and various state-of-the-art microanalysis tools and microscopes housed in several shared central facilities.

The UC salary consists of a base pay range of $92,500-$116,600 for Associate Professors, a base pay range of $108,300-197,100 for Full Professors and additional off-scale to be commensurate with market value, qualifications and experiences.
