Job Announcement Text: 

The Department of Physics at Washington University in St. Louis (https://physics.wustl.edu) invites applications for a tenure-track/tenured faculty appointment in Physics at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor to begin in the fall semester of 2021. A Ph.D. in Physics or a closely related discipline is required at the time of appointment. We invite applicants in all areas of theoretical, observational, and experimental astrophysics, cosmology, particle physics and nuclear physics who specialize in the use of data-intensive methods, data mining, statistics, large-scale computer simulations, machine learning, neural network, and GPU computing. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, simulations of astrophysical processes (e.g. black hole and neutron star accretion or merger, cosmological simulations), processing large data sets (e.g., gravitational wave, cosmological, multi-wavelength and multi-messenger data sets), and statistical, uncertainty quantification, and Bayesian analyses. The hire forms part of Washington University’s Digital Transformation initiative, in which 14 faculty members are hired in departments across the schools of Arts & Sciences (https://bit.ly/artscidigital). The ability and willingness to collaborate with colleagues across traditional discipline boundaries will be considered as a strength of the application. Furthermore, a joint appointment with the Department of Mathematics and Statistics (https://math.wustl.edu) can be considered if appropriate. The faculty hire will be a member of the McDonnell Center for the Space Sciences (https://mcss.wustl.edu). The successful candidate will conduct an independent research program, teach typically one class per semester, and advise undergraduate and graduate students. The appointment can begin as soon as Fall 2021.
