Faculty Position in Neutron Scattering Studies of Condensed Matter, 
McMaster University

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at McMaster University 
invites applications for a tenure track faculty position in 
experimental condensed matter physics using neutron scattering 
techniques.  All applications will be considered, with preference 
given to an appointment at the Assistant Professor level.  The 
appointment will commence July 2008 or later.

Our Department, in collaboration with the Canadian Neutron Beam 
Centre (CNBC), National Research Council, Chalk River, is looking to 
strengthen and complement our expertise in experimental condensed 
matter physics.  Our interests span hard and soft condensed matter as 
well as biophysics.  Extensive facilities for materials preparation, 
crystal growth, and characterization are operated by McMaster's 
Brockhouse Institute for Materials Research.  For more information on 
McMaster's Condensed Matter Physics and Soft Condensed Matter and 
Biophysics groups see 

The successful applicant must have a PhD in Physics, an outstanding
research record and an excellent aptitude for undergraduate and graduate
teaching.  This applicant is expected to incorporate access to neutron
scattering facilities at Chalk River as a key element of their research
program, to exploit opportunities at the Spallation Neutron Source (SNS),
through the "Canadian Participation at the SNS"  project at McMaster, and
eventually to develop a leading presence in the Canadian neutron
scattering community.  Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a
statement of research interests and plans, a statement regarding teaching,
and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent by February 4, 2008
to: Dr. David Venus, Chair, Department of Physics and Astronomy, McMaster
University, 1280 Main Street West, Hamilton, Ontario L8S 4M1.  E-mail and
FAX applications will not be accepted.

All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian 
citizens and permanent residents will be considered first for this 
position.  McMaster University is strongly committed to employment 
equity within its community, and to recruiting a diverse faculty and 
staff.  The University encourages applications from all qualified 
candidates including women, members of visible minorities, Aboriginal 
peoples, members of sexual minorities, and persons with disabilities.
