The Department of Physics (http://ph.postech.ac.kr) at Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH http://www.postech.ac.kr/eng/) in Korea has openings of three tenure-track faculty positions in Condensed Matter Physics Experiment, Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics, Biological Physics, and Plasma Physics starting from the fall semester 2018 or spring semester 2019.

We seek candidates with the potential to create internationally competitive research programs at POSTECH. Successful candidates are expected to have international recognition in their fields or a demonstrable potential for such. They are expected to establish and execute independent research groups at POSTECH, and should interact and collaborate effectively with scientists at POSTECH and POSTECH-based research institutions. They are also expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses, and supervise graduate students.

Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D. in Physics or closely related fields but we also welcome the application from exceptional Ph.D. students, who expect to finish their Ph.D. by their faculty appointment date. We anticipate hiring at the assistant professor level, but will also consider an associate professor appointment for exceptional candidates. Position and compensation will be commensurate with qualification. Non-Korean citizens and female scientists are encouraged to apply.

To apply

Candidates should submit an application package that consists of: (1) a Curriculum Vitae including a full list of publications, patents, and technology transfers etc., (2) a statement of past research and future plans, (3) three representative achievements (journal publications and/or R&D records), and (4) at least three references with their contacts information. Please be reminded that all documents sent will not be returned. Moreover, if POSTECH fails to find proper candidates, the positions may not be filled in this round of faculty search and be deferred to the next round.

The application deadline is December 15, 2017 (KST) but applications will continue to be accepted until the positions are filled.
