Wednesday, February 1, 2023

The Department of Physics at the University at Buffalo (UB), The State University of New York is seeking to fill a tenure-track faculty position in theoretical condensed matter physics/material science at the rank of Associate or Full Professor. The successful candidate is expected to build an active research program in the general interdisciplinary area between condensed matter physics and information science, such as data science/artificial intelligence-guided quantum materials design and exploration (including, but not limited to, topological materials, 2D materials, quantum magnets, non-linear optical materials, superconductors), and quantum machine learning.

The Department of Physics is entering a period of significant growth: two tenure-track faculty members (an experimental physicist working in MBE growth of quantum materials and a theoretical physicist working in quantum information processing/quantum optics) started this year. This current position is 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 Office of the Provost and the State of New York.

University at Buffalo is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and, in keeping with our commitment, welcomes all to apply including veterans and individuals with disabilities.
