The Department of Physics at Indiana University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in theoretical astrophysics, cosmology, or nuclear astrophysics starting in the fall of 2013. We are interested in excellent candidates in several areas including neutrino astrophysics, gravitational wave astrophysics, supernova and neutron star merger simulations, gamma ray astronomy, dark matter, baryogenesis, nucleosynthesis, and properties of dense matter and neutron stars. The successful candidate will join astrophysics colleagues in both the Physics and Astronomy Departments at Indiana University and interact with very strong research groups in several related areas including neutrino physics, fundamental symmetries, high-energy physics, and nuclear physics. The candidate must have a Ph.D in physics or astrophysics and some postdoctoral experience.
A commitment to excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level is essential. Candidates should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae including a list of publications, statement of research, and a statement of teaching, and arrange for a minimum of three letters of reference. Applications should be submitted through the application portal located at http://indiana.peopleadmin.com. For questions please contact the Physics Department at 812-855-1247. Applications received by January 15, 2013 will be given full consideration. The position will remain open until filled.
