The University at Buffalo is a research-intensive, Association of American Universities member and is the largest and most comprehensive unit in the State University of New York system. We're also remarkably different than other universities, making UB a flagship of New York State.
The Department of Physics is entering a period of significant growth: four tenure-track faculty members (an experimentalist working in MBE growth of quantum materials, an experimentalist working on neutron scattering and quantum optics, an experimentalist working on novel semiconductors, and a theorist working in quantum information science and many-body physics) started from 2022 to spring of 2024. These current positions are part of a multi-year, multi-faculty recruitment effort in quantum science and technology supported by the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, the Provost and the State of New York.
- Assistant Professor in the Experimental Studies of Quantum Materials The Department of Physics at UB is seeking to fill a tenure-track faculty position in experimental
condensed matter physics at the rank of Assistant Professor. The successful candidate is expected to build an active research program in the general area of quantum materials. We are particularly interested in candidates with expertise in material synthesis and/or advanced characterization techniques applied to quantum materials. The desired characterization techniques include but are not limited to spectroscopy, microscopy, and imaging methods in a broad range of length, time and wavelength scales. For further inquiries please contact Professor Hao Zeng at firstname.lastname@example.org. Job applications should be submitted via UBJobs at https://www.ubjobs.buffalo.edu/postings/44052. The position is open until filled, with an initial application deadline of October 1.
- Open Rank Search in Theoretical Studies of Quantum Physics and Information Science
The Department of Physics at UB is seeking to fill a tenure-track faculty position in theoretical physics at the rank of Assistant or Associate or Full Professor. The successful candidate is expected to build an active research program in the general interdisciplinary area between quantum physics and information science, such as (but not limited to) data science/artificial intelligence-guided quantum materials design and exploration, machine learning assisted study of quantum information science, and quantum informed machine learning. For further inquiries please contact Professor Igor Zutic at email@example.com. All job applications should be submitted via UBJobs at https://www.ubjobs.buffalo.edu/postings/43766 , open until filled, with an initial deadline of September 17.
- Assistant / Associate Professor in Experimental High-Energy Particle Physics The Department of Physics at UB is seeking to fill a faculty position at the assistant or associate professor rank in the area of experimental high-energy particle physics that overlaps with quantum sciences in detector technology and/or information processing. The successful candidate is expected to become a member of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN to join the existing efforts of the CMS group at UB, with options to pursue other interests such as smaller experiments, detector R&D, or future collider efforts. Current efforts of the CMS group include work on silicon tracker detectors, as well as reconstruction, calibration, and identification of hadronic jets. We engage in a broad program of searches for physics beyond the standard model, as well as precision measurements of standard model processes. Future efforts will include work on new collider activities. The HEP experimental group collaborates closely with theory colleagues in the department and data scientists from UB's Institute of Artificial Intelligence and Data Sciences. For further inquiries, please contact Professor Salvatore Rappoccio at firstname.lastname@example.org. Job applications should be submitted via UBJobs at https://www.ubjobs.buffalo.edu/postings/43665 , open until filled, with an initial application deadline of September 5.
