The Department invites applications for up to two faculty posts at Assistant Professor rank, with prospect for substantiation, tenable from the academic year 2014-2015.
Applicants should have a relevant PhD degree with postdoctoral research experience. Outstanding applicants in all areas of physics, particularly in the field of experimental condensed matter physics, are welcome to apply. Successful candidates are expected to demonstrate a strong record of research accomplishments, potential for establishing a significant externally funded research programme, and a strong interest in teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Applications will be accepted until the posts are filled.
