As part of a strategy to rapidly expand our Physics programme, the School of Mathematics, Statistics and Physics (MSP) is looking to appoint a number of Atomic Molecular Optical (AMO) or Condensed Matter (CM) Physicists.

We are looking for enthusiastic academics with expertise in any area of AMO/CM Physics, including both experiment and theory. You will be expected to establish your own area of expertise, but may find synergies with our existing areas of strength (device physics, materials, photonics, quantum optics and quantum fluids).  Our existing staff are part of Joint Quantum Centre (Newcastle-Durham) and developed the AimPRO DFT software package, which is used globally.

Newcastle University expects to grow its Physics academic staff by employing ~30 Physicists over the next 5-7 years. The successful candidate(s) will have the opportunity to help shape the research and teaching associated with this expansion. We are committed to using this opportunity to build a Physics environment with Equality and Diversity at its core. As such, in addition to a strong research track record, the successful applicant(s) will have a genuine interest and commitment to developing the role of under-represented groups in Physics, and an interest in establishing innovative, evidence based programmes that will target these groups at all levels. In addition, the successful candidate(s) will need to demonstrate the potential to be a strong role model for the values of equality, diversity and inclusion.

Application is via a CV (noting any career breaks and listing any research funding you have applied for or received) and a separate document (max. 3 pages) outlining the following:    

  1. Your top 5 research outputs in which you have had a significant input. This may include journal publications and other forms of output relating to impact. For multi-author works, describe your contribution.
  2. What constitutes excellent teaching to you.
  3. Describe what your contributions to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) will be at Newcastle and your contributions (if any) to promoting EDI in the past.
