The Physics Department of the University of California, Berkeley intends to make two faculty appointments effective July 1, 2014. We are interested in candidates in the following areas: AMO Science with an emphasis on theory; Astroparticle Experiment with a particular interest in direct dark matter detection. Appointments are intended to be at assistant professor level, though an associate or full professor appointment is possible in the Astroparticle Experiment search. A Ph.D. or equivalent in Physics (or a Physics related discipline) is required at time of application. The department seeks candidates whose research, teaching, or service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to diversity and inclusion in higher education.

References will be requested to supply letters through the online application system. All letters will be treated as confidential per University of California policy and California state law. Please refer potential referees, including when letters are provided via a third party (i.e., dossier service or career center), to the UC Berkeley statement of confidentiality: http://apo.chance.berkeley.edu/evalltr.html. For senior applicants who wish only to be considered at the associate or full professor level, it is sufficient to provide names and addresses of references in the initial application; the search committee will contact these references for letters only after the applicant is selected for further consideration.

ONLINE APPLICATIONS ARE STRONGLY PREFERRED. If online application is not possible, please contact Sarah Wittmer, switt@berkeley.edu for alternative methods. Applications by E-mail or FAX will not be accepted.

Applications must be received by November 8, 2013. The University of California is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action Employer. The department is also interested in individuals who may have had non-traditional career paths or who may have taken time off for family reasons (e.g., children, disabled, or elderly), or who have achieved excellence in careers outside academe (e.g., in professional or industry service). The University is responsive to the needs of dual career couples.
