Faculty Positions

Head, Department of Physics and Astronomy

Purdue University’s College of Science invites applications for the role of Head of the Department of Physics and Astronomy, with the possibility where suitable of an accompanying named and/or distinguished professorship. We seek a recognized researcher with a proven track record of leadership, scholarship, and mentoring. Following a very positive recent external visiting committee review and substantial investment in new hires and facilities, the successful candidate will have a clear plan to continue to increase the visibility, stature, and intellectual leadership of the Department and the College of Science, and will demonstrate a commitment to teaching excellence.

Faculty Position in Experimental Biological Physics

The Department of Physics and Astronomy in the College of Science at Purdue University seeks applications for a faculty position at the level of Assistant Professor in the area of experimental biological physics.

Assistant/Associate/Full Professor in Spintronics and Nanomagnetics

The College of Engineering at Purdue University have identified spintronics and nanomagnetics as one of the strategic growth areas that emphasize team based research with a focus on the potential for impact.

Post-Doctoral Positions

Postdoctoral Research Associate in Astroparticle Physics

The low-background group at Purdue University invites applications for a post-doctoral position. The group is particularly interested in using the XENON1T and XENONnT experiments to achieve a first measurement of solar boron-8 neutrinos via coherent neutrino-nucleus scattering, to search for signals from unconventional Dark Matter models, and to improve the SNEWS network to be optimally prepared for the next Galactic supernova event. Related questions concern the calibration of large-scale liquid noble gas detectors and the mitigation of backgrounds that are relevant for such low-energy signals.

Postdoctoral Position in Experimental Condensed Matter/Nano Physics and Quantum Devices

Application are invited for a postdoctoral position in Experimental condensed matter/nano physics and quantum devices at Purdue University in the group of Professor Yong P. Chen, the Quantum Matter and Devices (QMO) Laboratory affiliated with Purdue Physics, ECE and Birck Nanotechnology Center.
