Job Description

The Pomona College Physics and Astronomy Department invites applications for a tenure-track physics position at the level of Assistant Professor beginning July 1, 2023. We seek a physicist with a strong commitment to inclusive undergraduate teaching, mentoring a diverse student body, and developing a vigorous, externally funded research program. We welcome applicants with broad intellectual interests from a wide range of physics subdisciplines, with a preference for experimental physics, who will develop a vibrant research program that meaningfully engages students and teach broadly across the physics curriculum.

Our department has a strong commitment to inclusive pedagogy and to broadening access to physics and astronomy, including active participation in the American Physical Society’s Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity Alliance and the development of innovative, anti-racist teaching methods rooted in equitable pedagogy. Consistent with these ideals, we seek a colleague who will actively engage with us in shared leadership to advance equity in physics, and we are especially interested in candidates from historically marginalized populations and individuals who have experience in working with diverse student populations.

Pomona College, in Claremont, California, is a highly selective private undergraduate liberal arts college and the founding member of the Claremont Colleges Consortium. The college has approximately 1750 undergraduates and 200 faculty members, with a long history of strong academic programs and vigorous student-faculty research. In addition to opportunities for collaboration across the Claremont Colleges and nearby research universities, Pomona provides outstanding facilities and technical support for both teaching and research in Estella Labs, which opened in 2016. These include a scanning electron microscope, a high-performance computing cluster, electron beam lithography, energy dispersive x-ray analysis facilities, a thermal evaporator, a chemical prep room, and modern CNC fabrication facilities. The department has a dedicated technical support staff, including a machinist, an electronics technician, and a lab technician. The College also boasts a robust summer research program with ample funding opportunities for students.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in physics, or a closely related field and postdoctoral experience is preferred. Application materials should include three statements: 1) a teaching statement; 2) a research plan; and 3) a statement describing a demonstrated ability to mentor a diverse student body and advance the cause of equity in our field. In addition, the application should include a letter of interest, a curriculum vita, official copies of undergraduate and graduate transcripts, and three confidential letters of reference. All application materials should be submitted electronically at AcademicJobsOnline.

Review of applications will begin on October 15, 2022 and continue until the position is filled. Questions regarding this position and search should be directed to the search committee (
