Two Faculty Positions in experimental or computational Plasma Physics

The Institute of Physics of the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions at the Assistant Professor level, to begin as early as August 2017.

A Ph.D. degree in physics is required and postdoctoral experience is expected. The successful candidate is expected to establish a leading research program in the areas relevant to the Plasma Physics group, as well as teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels. One of the selected candidates is expected to develop research in experimental Plasma Physics, with particular emphasis in dense transient plasmas. A good working knowledge of pulsed power technology and electronics together with plasma diagnostics is advantageous. The area of research expertise of the second selected candidate could be either in experimental plasma physics applied to materials science or biomedicine, or to computational Plasma Physics related to transient high energy density plasmas. Applications should include a letter of application, curriculum vitae, list of publications, and statements of past and proposed research and teaching interests. Furthermore, at least two confidential letters of reference must be sent directly by the referees. All the documents should be sent by email before February 28, 2017 to the Head of the Selection Committee, Prof. Heman Bhuyan, hbhuyan@fis.puc.cl
