The Department of Physics & Astronomy and the C.N. Yang Institute for Theoretical Physics (YITP) at Stony Brook University is accepting applications to seven tenure track/tenured positions: in Accelerator Physics, Observational Astronomy, Experimental Condensed Matter Physics, Observational and Theoretical Cosmology, Nucleon Decay and Neutrino Physics and Experimental Nuclear Physics. The research areas for the new faculty have been defined in our strategic plan, to build on existing strengths and move into emergent areas where leading programs can be developed.

The Department and the Institute benefit from 70 highly ranked faculty in research and teaching, 170 excellent graduate students, and close affiliations with experimental and theoretical research centers of international reputation. We have ties with the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, and the Laufer Center for Quantitative Biology. We host the Center for Accelerator Research and Education, the Center for Quantum Materials, and the recently funded Center for Cosmology and Fundamental Physics. Many members of our faculty conduct research at the nearby Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL).

The ability to attract independent research funding and a keen interest in teaching undergraduate and graduate courses are requirements for all applicants. In some circumstances, a joint appointment with Brookhaven National Laboratory may be considered. For most of the positions the expected start date is September 2014. Stony Brook University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer. Applications from women and minority candidates are strongly encouraged.
