Academic Posts

Associate Professor of Atomic and Laser Physics
(High Energy Density Science)

Grade 30S: £48,114 – £64,605 p.a.

The Department of Physics proposes to appoint an Associate Professor (or Professor) in Atomic and Laser Physics (High Energy Density Science – HEDS). The successful candidate will also be offered a Tutorial Fellowship at Trinity College. The post is available from 1 June 2020 and the appointee is required to commence in the post by 31 July 2020.

The combined University and College salary will be in the range £48,114 – £64,605 p.a. plus a housing allowance from the College of £15,000 p.a. (or college accommodation subject to availability). An allowance of £2,804 p.a. would be payable upon award of Full Professor title. Full Professors also have access to further merit-based pay awards.

The Associate Professor will join a vigorous community of physicists exploiting high-power optical lasers and X-ray free-electron-laser (FEL) technology to create, diagnose, and understand matter at extremes of temperature and pressure, such as may be found within the interiors of planets, stars, and, for example, during inertial-confinement fusion implosions. The group at Oxford, and the CLF at STFC, have played leading roles in the development of the recently commissioned HED instrument at the European XFEL in Hamburg. The purpose of this appointment is to recruit an experimental physicist who can help exploit the UK’s significant investment in this, and other HED-relevant facilities worldwide, and to develop further our understanding of extreme states of matter. Whilst the post is for an experimentalist, the postholder will be expected to work closely with theorists, and currently several members of the department straddle the experiment-theory divide. For the first 5 years, there will be a partial secondment of the University component of the post to STFC’s Central Laser Facility, under arrangements described in the Further Particulars.

The successful candidate will hold a doctorate in physics, or a related subject, and will have a proven record of high quality creative research in HEDS at an international level. They will be an excellent teacher at undergraduate and graduate level. They will be expected to develop a world-leading research programme addressing the fundamental challenges in our understanding of extreme states of matter, to teach at undergraduate and graduate level, and to participate in administration of both Trinity College and the Physics Department.

Enquiries about the departmental role may be made to Professor Simon Hooker (simon.hooker@physics.ox.ac.uk). Enquiries about the college role should be addressed to: senior.tutor@trinity.ox.ac.uk.

Please quote departmental reference 143637 on all correspondence. Applicants should ensure that their referees send letters to: EA.HoD@physics.ox.ac.uk by the same deadline.
