About the Project

The Physics Department seeks a PhD Graduate Student with a start date in July 2022 (who will be supported by a Teaching Assistantship if successful), with a background in Computational Physics and Nanotechnology. Familiarity with computational methods, a programming language and previous experience in computer modeling is required. Applicants should have an interest in computational physics. The successful applicant will work on computer simulation problems.

Applicants should have a background in Physics or related field, such as Quantum Mechanics, Electricity & Magnetism, Thermal Physics, or Modern Physics. Applicants from other disciplines will not be considered for this position (but may be good candidates for admission to a different department at Clarkson).

A graduate Teaching Assistantship (TA) involves about 20 hours of work each week and qualifications include good interpersonal skills and good to excellent command of English. The TA may be asked to participate in research projects in addition to teaching duties. Health insurance is provided through the Clarkson Plan which is the same for all Clarkson employees.

Clarkson University is a private, national research University leading in technological education and sustainable economic development. Clarkson offers graduate programs in Arts & Sciences, Business, Education, Engineering, and Health Sciences, with onsite, online and hybrid modes of study.
