Complementing contact points with research programs in the Physics Department (biological physics, medical physics, surface and thin film physics, ultrafast spectroscopy, nonlinear optics, statistical physics) or at URI more generally will be a factor in the selection process.

The Physics Department is in the process of developing, with support by a committed partner from industry, an MS degree in Applied Quantum Technology. Demonstrated expertise that naturally aligns with this initiative is a plus.

The successful candidate will teach undergraduate and graduate physics courses, advise undergraduate and graduate students in the research component toward BS, MS, and PhD degrees, and be active in service at the levels of Department, College, and University.
