As part of the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program, NC State University seeks expressions of interest and nominations for tenured Professors in Carbon-Based Electronics, Spintronics, and Photonics for the first two or three of the five positions available. We seek innovative and transformative academic leaders whose scholarship will advance NC State’s position as one of the premier universities of its kind. While we anticipate an appointment at the rank of Professor, exceptional candidates at the rank of Associate Professor will be considered.
In this initial hiring phase, the Carbon Electronics Cluster is seeking: 1) visionary leaders investigating emergent phenomena in carbon electronics, spintronics, photonics and related areas (such as reduced dimensional systems and hybrid materials) aimed at disruptive discovery. A particular example is the emergent notion of spin-based electronics, or “spintronics”, using carbon materials, or fundamental charge transport studies. Of interest is also the development of novel characterization and measurement methods that lead to new observations, new knowledge and new insights that open up new avenues for applications. 2) Scientists and/or engineers with expertise in the processing, assembly and characterization of organic, polymeric, and other carbon-based materials (including hybrids) for electrical, opto-electronic and related devices. Application and nominations in complementary areas (e.g. synthesis) will also be considered. We are particularly interested in faculty who can integrate disruptive discovery with state-of-the-art materials science approaches that enable novel devices and translate scientific and engineering knowledge to a manufacturing paradigm. Strong collaborations with other faculty within the cluster and existing efforts are expected and anticipated to enhance local collaborative efforts to bring new carbon materials ideas from academia to industry and lead to joint funding opportunities.
Minimum requirements include a Ph.D. in Materials Science or Physics, or other relevant field from an accredited institution. The candidates should have a strong capacity to teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, including the capacity to mentor doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows. Priority will be given to candidates that have demonstrated interdisciplinary collaborations that cut across academic units. Inclusiveness and diversity are academic imperatives and thus university goals. The University is particularly interested in candidates with experience in working with students from diverse backgrounds and who have a demonstrated commitment to improving access to higher education for students from underrepresented groups.
For consideration, a curriculum vitae, cover letter, vision statement, and contact information for references are requested. Materials for consideration will be accepted electronically via http://jobs.ncsu.edu/postings/56721. A comprehensive review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. The target start date is August 2016; however, a mutually beneficial time may be negotiated. Questions about the position may be directed to Harald Ade (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program is bringing some of the best and brightest minds to join NC State University’s interdisciplinary efforts to solve some of the globe’s most significant problems. Guided by a strong strategic plan and an aggressive vision, the cluster hiring program is adding new faculty members in select fields to add more breadth and depth to NC State’s already-strong efforts. The Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program marks a major initiative of the university’s strategic plan, “The Pathway to the Future.” NC State will soon complete its first cohort of twelve clusters with 41 hires to date. This success led to a commitment to establish eight new clusters consisting of 33 additional interdisciplinary faculty hires. We invite you to explore more information about the Chancellor’s Faculty Excellence Program and this cluster at http://ncsu.edu/workthatmatters. Complementary senior hires will be made during a second phase. Complementary junior faculty hires are anticipated to be made by the Cluster host departments. A search for a junior hire is ongoing in physics.
NC State University provides a dynamic environment for research, teaching, mentoring, and collaboration across disciplines. Our location in the Research Triangle provides rich opportunities for interactions with industry; research organizations; other universities, including Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and government agencies.

The Department of Physics at NC State University invites exceptionally qualified candidates to apply for a tenure-track or tenured faculty position in experimental condensed matter physics, with an emphasis on carbon-based or reduced dimensional electronic materials or devices. While the search is broadly defined, the candidate is expected to complement excellent current activities in the recently established Organic and Carbon Electronics Laboratory (ORaCEL) at NCSU (http://oracel.wordpress.ncsu.edu/) with existing strengths in morphological, fs opto-electronic dynamics, and surface characterization. Furthermore, the ideal candidate will also add to collaborative strengths throughout the local Research Triangle region. Preferred research areas include complementary analysis/characterization methods, fabrication capabilities, or device physics investigations focused on organic, polymeric, and other novel carbon materials (e.g. graphene and carbon nanotubes). We note that we have a simultaneous search in computational condensed/material/bio physics. Participation in interdisciplinary research across departments and colleges and with world-wide collaborators is expected. We plan to hire the candidate that will optimize expected individual and collective research productivity irrespective of rank and with a commitment to teaching/learning excellence. To receive full consideration, applications for the Fall 2015 academic year should be received by November 1, 2014. To apply, please visit https://jobs.ncsu.edu/ and designate position number 00104153, where you can submit a curriculum vitae and a brief summary of research and teaching goals. Applicants should also arrange to have at least three letters of recommendation sent by e-mail to email@example.com, with condensed matter and the name of the applicant in the subject line. The College of Sciences welcomes the opportunity to work with candidates to identify suitable employment opportunities for spouses or partners. AA/EEO. In addition, NC State University welcomes all persons without regard to sexual orientation or genetic information. If you require accommodations in the application and interview process please call (919) 515-3148.
Minimum qualifications include an earned Ph.D. degree in physics or a physics-related area.
