Effective Symmetries: Clues to Higher Dimensions

WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 22
3:30 PM
ROOM TKH 103
 
"Effective Symmetries: Clues to Higher Dimensions”
Dr Tristan Hubsch
D. Physics and Astronomy, Howard University.

ABSTRACT: Many of the well-known physical models exhibit symmetries that have
not been built into them by the initial construction and application.
Such "effective" symmetries often help understanding both the model
as well as the physical system being modeled by it. After a cursory
survey of a few simple cases, I will describe how such effective
symmetries---well-nigh holographically---remember whether a quantum-
mechanical supersymmetric system is a "dimensionally reduced" shadow
of a system defined in a higher-dimensional spacetime.

Two Tenure-Track Assistant Professor Positions in Physics at Howard University

The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Howard University invites applications at the Assistant Professor level for two tenure-track faculty positions. Preference for one of the positions will be given to applicants who are experimentalists specializing in nanoscale materials science for renewable energy applications.

The successful candidates are expected to establish a vigorous research program and to teach at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Existing synthesis and characterization facilities at HU are available to help the new faculty researchers quickly establish and advance their research initiatives. Howard University is ranked as one of the top private universities that focus on producing African American scientists.

Howard University has several campuses, providing access to outstanding facilities for interdisciplinary collaborations with local research organizations such as NASA, NIST and NRL. In addition, the Department has a strategic priority of enhancing collaborations and interactions with national labs and to lead/participate in large interdisciplinary research programs.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Physics and should submit a letter of application, three letters of recommendation, a curriculum vitae, publication record, research plan, and teaching plan via mail to

Chairman - Appointments, Promotions and Tenure Committee
Department of Physics and Astronomy
Howard University
2355 6th Street, NW
Washington, DC 20059

or electronically to abatra@howard.edu. The positions are expected to be filled effective August 16, 2015. Review of applications will begin on December 15, 2014, but applications will be accepted and reviewed until the positions are filled.

Howard University is an equal opportunity/ affirmative action employer committed to building a diverse workforce. We encourage applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, individuals with disabilities and veterans. .

 

Temporary Physics Faculty Position

The Department of Physics and Astronomy anticipates filling two temporary (non tenure-track) faculty positions for two semesters (spring and fall semesters) starting January 2015, subject to budgetary approval. Applicants are invited in all areas of physics.

These position are for the rank of Lecturer/Instructor with primary responsibility for instruction, require a PhD degree in physics or a closely related field and a strong commitment to excellence in teaching.

Review of applicants will begin on October 15, 2014 and continue until the positions are filled. Application materials should include a letter of application, a curriculum vitae, and names and contact information (e-mail address and telephone) of three references. Although electronic applications are preferred (abatra@howard.edu), the application materials may also be sent to:
