The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley Department of Physics and Astronomy welcomes applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor position to begin in Fall 2019. Responsibilities include delivering quality instruction within the undergraduate and graduate programs in the department, conducting research, and participating in service activities.

The department has strong research focus on gravitational wave, radio, and optical astronomy, applied optics and lasers, nanotechnology, nanophotonics, biophysics, condensed matter physics,  and physics education. Members of the NASA and NSF funded Centers for Gravitational Wave Astronomy (CGWA) and Advanced Radio Astronomy (CARA) were involved in the landmark discovery of gravitational waves in 2015 that led to a Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics and a Nobel prize. There are six state-of-the-art laboratories funded by the NSF, NASA, NIH, and the US Air Force, and a space technology incubator (STARGATE) funded by the US EDA and Texas ETF.

The successful candidate is expected to attract extramural funding to support a vigorous research program. A strong record of independent publications is required. Existing externally funded research and mentoring of students in research are considered a plus.
