Job Announcement Text: 

As part of a major faculty hiring initiative, the Department of Physics at the University of Florida (UF) seeks a full-time, nine-month, tenure-track Assistant Professor in Theoretical Astrophysics (TA) to begin in August 2018. Highly qualified candidates from all areas of TA are encouraged to apply.

Presently, the TA group engages in a broad range of research activities in galaxy evolution, gravitational waves (GW), planetary atmospheres, neutrino physics, quantum gravity, dark matter, and cosmology. The TA faculty maintain close ties with the Astronomy Department and are heavily involved in GW research in conjunction with ongoing UF experimental interests in both the LIGO and LISA projects.

The successful candidate must hold a Ph.D. degree (or equivalent), and postdoctoral research experience is expected. Demonstrated potential for excellence in teaching and mentoring a diverse undergraduate and graduate student body, while establishing a well-recognized research program, is essential.

Applications must be submitted online at http://explore.jobs.ufl.edu/cw/en-us/job/504675, and must include: a cover letter, a curriculum vitae with publication list, a research statement, a statement of teaching philosophy, and the names and contact information for at least three references. Reference providers will only be notified of their upload link once an application is submitted in full, so early completion of an application is highly recommended.

To ensure full consideration, applications must be submitted by November 15, 2017, but applications will remain open until the position is filled.  For more information, please contact Prof. Bernard Whiting (bwhiting@ufl.edu).

The University of Florida is an equal opportunity institution dedicated to building a broadly diverse and inclusive faculty and staff. Searches are conducted in accordance with Florida's Sunshine Law. If an accommodation due to disability is needed to apply for this position, please call (352) 392-2477 or the Florida Relay System at (800) 955-8771 (TDD).
