Job Announcement Text: 

The department of physics at Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María (UTFSM), Chile, invites applications to fill two faculty positions (one at the campus in Santiago and one at the campus in Valparaíso), beginning as early as possible in 2021 but at the latest in March 2022. The applicants must have a Ph.D. degree in astronomy or astrophysics, with proven research productivity and commitment to teaching at undergraduate and graduate level. 

The new astrophysics group is currently focusing on compact objects, stellar multiplicity, and exo-planets (campus Valparaíso) and observational/computational cosmology, galaxy formation and evolution, large-scale structure, and the halo-galaxy connection (campus Santiago). However, for both positions, outstanding candidates from any astrophysical research field will also be considered. 

The successful candidates are expected to have a commitment to excellence in research and to join the recently opened undergraduate program in astrophysics, interacting closely with students. Our department is an active research center in the country with a visitor program and an international research collaboration network. Our university is mainly focused on science and engineering with multidisciplinary activities, attracting some of the most brilliant students in these fields. The successful candidates will have access to the Chilean ten percent of observing time at the telescopes located in our country, which include ALMA and the VLT and in the near future the ELT and GMT. In addition, our university hosts powerful computer clusters. The selected candidates are expected to teach in Spanish within a year. Applicants should submit a CV, a short statement of research interests and teaching philosophy, two letters of reference that should be sent directly from the referee, and a copy of degree certificates. The documents should be sent by June 15th, to Dirección RRHH (postulaciones.ddrrhhad@usm.cl) or to the head of the Physics Department, Prof. Mónica Pacheco (monica.pacheco@usm.cl). Late applications may be considered until the position is filled.
