Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) has an open position for Associate Professor in computational physics with specialisation in mesoscale phenomena.

Apply here

About the position

We seek applicants with the expertise and motivation to develop computational and/or statistical physics activities in a manner that forms synergetic connections with the current activity within the department and take a leading role to build a group that will be developing the field over the next decades. To optimize the synergetic efforts, we are seeking a candidate with the primary competence within statistical physics and/or electron transport theory with specialization in mesoscale phenomena, including atomistic and coarse-grained models in molecular dynamics, dislocation dynamics in solids and/or electronic device models.

Main duties of the position

  • Be part of leading the development of the research group within Materials Theory as well as new methods and applications within Materials Theory research area.
  • Contributing actively to the further development of local, national and international collaboration of the department, including both the academic and non-academic sectors.
  • Specific responsibility for teaching courses within condensed matter, statistical, and computational physics; capability to lecture any physics course at the BSc level
  • Supervision of master students, research fellows and doctoral candidates
  • Taking part in the development of the curriculum and teaching program as well as departmental administrative work

Qualification requirements

The position of Associate Professor requires university education at doctoral level in computational physics or equivalent in chemistry / materials science and demonstrable academic excellence in computational condensed matter physics and mesoscale phenomena.

Emphasis will be placed on ability and experience in initiating and leading research. Strong emphasis will be placed on publication of research results in recognized international journals within the subject area. Particular focus will be placed on academic work during the past five years, excluding statutory leave (depending on the disciplinary tradition).
