Faculty Positions

Research Assistant Professor Job in Nuclear Theory at the UW, Seattle

The Nuclear Theory Group (NTG) at the University of Washington invites applications for a full-time Research Assistant Professor in theoretical nuclear physics for an anticipated appointment beginning in 2024. This is a 12-month, full-time, non-tenure eligible limited term appointment for a duration of up to five years, depending on performance and funding. The salary range is between $6,667 and $7,083 per month, commensurate with experience and qualifications, or as mandated by a U.S. Department of Labor prevailing wage determination.

Although the candidate will be primarily engaged in research activities, all University of Washington faculty may engage in teaching, research, and service.

Current group research interests include QCD, many-body theory, nuclear reactions at high and low energies, weak interactions and symmetries, effective field theory, lattice QCD, nuclear astrophysics, nuclear structure, EIC physics, quantum entanglement & computing related to nuclear physics applications and FRIB physics.

Applicants should have a PhD (or foreign equivalent) in theoretical nuclear physics, broadly defined, post-doctoral experience of at least 12 months, a documented record of research achievements, and an established strong record of publications.

Application Instructions
Applications should be made at and include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a research statement, a statement describing the applicants experience and commitment to diversity, and three letters of reference. Priority will be given to applications received before January 18, 2024. The search will continue until the position is filled. If interested please apply, the NTG and the Institute for Nuclear Theory (INT) are distinct entities so a previous application to a similar position at the INT is not sufficient. Any questions may be directed to Professor Aurel Bulgac at
