Open Faculty Positions

The College of Science at the University of Notre Dame has faculty positions open in biophysics and physics




The University of Notre Dame is actively seeking candidates for a senior-level faculty position in experimental and/or computational biophysics. With major funding from the William & Linda Stavropoulos Family Foundation, the University of Notre Dame is launching an interdisciplinary Center for Biophysics ( The Center will complement the university’s recent major strategic research investments to create and promote a highly collaborative environment for interdisciplinary research, including a recently-opened 200,000 square-foot molecular sciences research building.


The successful candidate should have a distinguished record of accomplishments at the interface of physics and biology, commensurate with appointment as an endowed chair. These include a strong, internationally recognized and extramurally funded research program and a commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The position includes salary, start-up funding and laboratory space commensurate with level.


Candidates should submit a confidential letter of inquiry and curriculum vitae to Professor Patricia L. Clark, Chair of the search committee, through Interfolio. To request further information please contact Professor Clark at or (574) 631-8353. Review of applications will commence immediately and will continue until the position is filled.


The University is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer; we strongly encourage applications from women, minorities, veterans, individuals with a disability and those candidates attracted to a university with a Catholic identity.  




The Department of Physics at the University Notre Dame invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position in theoretical high-energy physics. We especially encourage candidates to apply with a proven track record of research in astroparticle physics, neutrino physics, or collider phenomenology. The theoretical particle faculty currently includes Professors Antonio Delgado, Christopher Kolda, Adam Martin, and Emeritus Professor Ikaros Bigi. The theory group interacts closely with our large experimental high-energy physics group, with efforts at CMS and DUNE, and with our active groups in astronomy, nuclear astrophysics, and cosmology. We seek outstanding candidates who will strengthen and broaden our efforts in these areas, will attract independent research funding, and will teach effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate level. The expected start date is August 2019.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, list of publications, detailed research plans, and a statement of teaching interests. Candidates must also arrange for at least three letters of recommendation. In order to be assured of full consideration, applications and supporting letters should be submitted no later than November 30.

The Department of Physics has 44 tenured and tenure-track faculty; another 22 research, teaching and concurrent faculty; more than 100 graduate students; and about 120 undergraduate physics majors.
