The Wesleyan University Astronomy Department invites applications for a tenure track position at the assistant professor level. The ideal candidate will have a Ph.D. plus at least two years of post-doctoral experience. We seek a person who can teach across the curriculum, extend the research areas and techniques covered by the Department, and interact well with the existing faculty. The position is open to any area of specialization, but the successful candidate must demonstrate a willingness and ability to involve undergraduates in forefront research. In addition to an undergraduate major, the Department also runs an M.A. program that has been quite successful in preparing students, including those with non-traditional backgrounds, for admission to Ph.D. programs. Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, and research statement. They should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent to the search committee. The deadline for receipt of all application materials is December 15, 2010.
