The Institute of Radioastronomy & Astrophysics of the UNAM (Morelia Campus) invites applications for two tenure-track faculty positions in astrophysics at the Assistant/Associate Professor level. Applicants should hold a PhD in astrophysics or a related discipline, and have at least two years of postdoctoral experience.
Candidates from all subfields of astronomy and astrophysics will be considered, although for one of the positions, preference will be given to applicants in the areas of cosmology and galaxy formation (theoretical, computational, or observational). Current Institute faculty have a broad range of interests, with particularly active research groups in extragalactic astronomy, interstellar turbulence, and star formation.
The successful candidate is expected to carry out original research, collaborating with the research staff (23 faculty; 5 postdocs) and graduate students. The candidate will be expected to teach graduate astronomy courses; these may be taught in either English or Spanish. The main selection criteria will be outstanding research accomplishments and promise of future achievement.
Candidates should 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 the Academic Secretary of the Institute by 30 November 2017. Unsigned material may be sent by e-mail; letters can be sent by e-mail (scanned) or by courier. Please do not use regular mail.
Review of applications will begin on 1 December. The anticipated start date is no later than August 2018.
