Salary is commensurate with level of qualifications and professional experience.
The Department of Physics seeks temporary or special appointment applications from Ph.D. level scientists engineers who are interested in research positions at the Research Scientist/Scholar level. Level I is for individuals generally within three years of receiving their Ph.D and with significant professional accomplishments. Level II is analogous to the Assistant Professor title for regular faculty. It generally includes people with three to seven years of experience beyond the Ph.D. and very significant professional accomplishments. Level III is analogous to the Associate Professor title for regular faculty. It generally includes individuals with more than seven years of experience beyond the Ph.D., and with extremely significant professional accomplishments. The Senior level is analogous to the full Professor title for regular faculty. It generally includes individuals well beyond the Ph.D. that have demonstrated outstanding, sustained, and extraordinary professional accomplishments as well as professional leadership. Ranking and qualifications within these levels are done on a case by case basis with factors that include the publication record, past research funding, professional honors and awards, decisive discoveries, and management experience. Applicable department research areas include, among others, theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics, atomic and molecular optics, and high energy and astrophysics. The department also provides instruction of both undergraduate and graduate students. A detailed description of the department and information on specific faculty research programs are available on the department web page http://www.physics.colostate.edu
Interested individuals should send (1) a current resume, (2) a concise statement of research qualifications, experience, accomplishments, and interests, and (3) the names, addresses, and e-mail addresses for three references, directly to the specific faculty member in the department with the program that is relevant to the personís interest and qualifications or to http://cns.natsci.colostate.edu/employment/OpenPool/physics/.
This pool is valid through January 31, 2014, at which time all applicants wishing to remain in the pool must reapply.
