The CRyA has strong research groups in radio astronomy and star formation, but candidates from all fields of astrophysics will be considered.
The successful candidates are expected to carry out original research, collaborating with other faculty and students. They will also have to teach, mainly graduate astronomy courses, and so proficiency in English and/or Spanish is required. The main selection criteria will be outstanding research accomplishments and promise of future achievement. The level of each appointment will depend on the curriculum of the candidate.
Candidates must send a complete curriculum vitae including a full list of publications, as well as a statement of previous experience and current and future professional interests, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to Dr. Jane Arthur at the CRyA by December 7th 2012.
