Tenure Track Faculty Position in Experimental Nuclear Physics
The Department of Physics at the University of Guelph currently has an opening for a tenure-track faculty position in experimental nuclear physics. This position will be jointly funded by TRIUMF for an initial six-year period, during which time the successful candidate will have reduced teaching assignments at the University of Guelph in order to accelerate the establishment of a vigorous externally-funded research program at TRIUMF's Isotope Separator and Accelerator (ISAC) facility. Further details can be found in the attached advertisement.
