The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Iowa invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in observational astronomy/astrophysics.

The successful candidate is expected to begin in Fall 2024. The current astrophysics group has active research programs in the areas of observational extragalactic and Galactic astronomy, X-ray and UV instrumentation, and theoretical and observational stellar astrophysics. Applications are welcomed from candidates specializing in various domains of observational astronomy/astrophysics. The Department places particular emphasis on recruiting an observational astronomer whose research extensively employs space-based instruments, aiming to strengthen its historical expertise in space-based studies.

Informal inquiries about the position can be directed to Hai Fu (hai-fu@uiowa.edu), with the subject line “Observational Astronomy Faculty Search.” For the full job description and instructions to apply, please see https://jobs.uiowa.edu/faculty/view/74846.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Iowa invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in theoretical particle physics.

The successful candidate is expected to begin in Fall 2024. Candidates in areas of either neutrino/very weakly interacting particle phenomenology in laboratory and astroparticle physics, or in the areas of applications of quantum information/computation in quantum field theory and particle physics are encouraged to apply. The particle physics theory group has active research programs in neutrino and dark matter phenomenology, lattice gauge theory, quantum gravity, relativistic nuclear physics and quantum computation in lattice field theory. The Department of Physics and Astronomy is the anchor of the QuLAT collaboration and has synergetic efforts in experimental particle physics (DUNE, EUSO-SBPB2, CMS and ATLAS) and in quantum information for condensed matter physics (spintronics, nitrogen vacancies, photonics).

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Iowa invites applications for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position in experimental high energy particle physics.

The successful candidate is expected to begin in Fall 2024. The Department of Physics and Astronomy seeks a high energy particle physicist with involvement in space-based experiments. The ideal candidate will develop an active program in detector development and physics analysis that overlaps in the Neutrino, Cosmic, or Instrumentation Frontiers outlined by the recent Particle Physics Community Planning Exercise (“Snowmass”) and/or is synergistic with research efforts currently in our department. However, research programs in all areas of experimental particle physics will be considered.
