We are seeking candidates for a 50% tenure-track Assistant Professor on a nine-month academic year basis beginning January 2019. Successful candidates are expected to develop an externally sponsored research program in Physics Education Research (PER), to teach, and to provide academic advising to students. A 50% tenure-track position means that the University will provide 4.5 months of salary per year with the candidate obtaining additional academic year and/or summer salary funding through grants and contracts. This position carries all other rights and responsibilities of an Assistant Professor at the University of Washington and the candidate would go through a process for promotion and tenure with the timeline set by university policy.
    The University of Washington Bothell has a new undergraduate degree in physics and is seeking to build strength in this program. Faculty in the Physical Sciences Division of the School of STEM are expected to possess strong teaching, research, and mentoring skills and enthusiastic incorporation of undergraduates into their research program.
