Tenure-track Position in Physics

The Department of Mathematics and Science invites candidates to apply for a tenure-track position in Physics starting in Fall 2024.

We are looking for devoted teachers who are also active researchers. The successful candidate will teach three undergraduate course sections each semester. Typically, two will be introductory physics courses that are part of our general education curriculum and predominantly attended by non-physics majors. The third will be advanced theoretical courses, which may include Quantum Physics, Theoretical Mechanics, Electrodynamics, Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics, and Quantum Mechanics, depending on student demand, or a foundational mathematics course such as Precalculus, Linear Algebra, or Calculus I. The introductory physics courses include a laboratory component, which the successful candidate will supervise.

Physics is one of our newest majors. We are looking for a candidate who is passionate about getting students excited about physics and attracting them to the major.

We invite applications from candidates at the rank of Assistant Professor or higher.

We base salaries on rank and qualifications.


A Ph.D. in Physics or a related area is required. We prefer candidates with undergraduate teaching experience in the US liberal arts style of education and a record of publications or scholarly research. However, candidates near the completion of their dissertation are welcome to apply.


AUBG is an American-style liberal arts university accredited in Bulgaria and the United States. Established in 1991 after the fall of communism to educate students for life in a democratic society, AUBG has recommitted to its founding mission by establishing the Center for Information, Democracy, and Citizenship. We are especially interested in hearing from candidates excited about working in a region where an appreciation of science is crucial to sustaining a democratic society. AUBG is located in Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria. We are a selective, residential institution with a diverse student body of around 1000 students from over 40 countries. English is the language of instruction. Many of our graduates continue their education at prestigious universities in the United States and Europe. Others have contributed to the private and public sectors in the region and worldwide.
