Uniandes is a private university, which strives for excellence in both teaching and research. According with the QS academic ranking, Uniandes is positioned in the top ten universities in Latin America. Applicants should have a Ph.D. degree in this field of research with postdoctoral experience in hardware and software development and implementation.
All professors in our Department are required to participate in teaching a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses in physics, including physics major requirements, and elective courses related to the research activities of the professors. The new faculty member will be expected to participate in institutional development activities in our Department and at the University level, outreach and international collaborations.
The selected candidate is invited to join the High Energy Physics group at Universidad de los Andes. The group collaborates with the CMS experiment at the LHC, and has an intensive research program in particle physics phenomenology and interdisciplinary detector applications. It is preferable if the new faculty member can contribute in more than one of these areas. Also, the group is open to new research lines and projects in experimental high energy physics that the new faculty member may bring. Our institution is interested in highly motivated professors with an interdisciplinary research approach and commitment to teaching. More information about the department research lines and experimental and computing facilities can be found at: http://fisica.uniandes.edu.co
Interested applicants should fill out their personal information and submit the following documents: a) curriculum vitae including a list of publications, b) an independent and viable research plan document, and a c) teaching plan document through the following link http://fisicaconvocatoriasp.uniandes.edu.co
Additionally, the applicant should provide the contact information of three references. Referees will be contacted by the Department of Physics to submit their reference letters through the online platform.
The selection process will begin August 30th, 2019, giving priority to applicants that apply by that date. However, applications will continue to be received beyond that date until the position is filled.
