Rank: Assistant Professor (Permanent Position)

Application deadline: August 31th, 2015 (23:59, Brasília local time)

The Department of Materials Physics and Mechanics (DFMT) invites highly-motivated candidates to apply for a faculty position in the general area of “Condensed Matter Physics”. The opening is for an experimental physicist at the Assistant Professor level, and is part of an initiative for further significant improvement of DFMT’s faculty.

The University of São Paulo has been consistently ranked among the top research institutions in Latin America.  DFMT has proven academic excellence, and its faculty members are extremely active in many different topics such as New Materials, Nanoscience, Quantum Devices, Semiconductors, Biomolecular Physics, Organic Semiconductors, Complex Systems, Low-Temperatures Physics, and Magnetism. 

New faculty members are expected to teach undergraduate and graduate courses, show research productivity commensurate with their experience, and a capacity to develop and sustain a research program that will result in peer-reviewed publications.  They are also expected to advise students, provide service to the university, and sustain international collaborations. Both the application and the selection process can be done in Portuguese or entirely in English if the candidate does not speak Portuguese. We strongly encourage candidates from Brazil as well as from other countries to apply. The application form and a description of the documentation necessary to apply can be found in the link Rules and Documentation. We expect the presential interviews to take place late in the second semester of 2015 in order to start the appointment by March 2016.
