The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Texas Tech University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position starting in Fall 2020. Strong candidates in any area of astronomy research will be considered, but preference will be given to areas that significantly broaden out from the department's current research in stellar mass compact objects, gravitational waves, and high energy astrophysics, while still having the potential for intellectual interaction.
Applicants must have a PhD in Astronomy, Physics, or a related field. The successful candidate will have a strong record of publication and strong potential for obtaining external research funding, teaching graduate and undergraduate classes, mentoring students, and performing service to the department, college, and university.
Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, research statement, teaching statement, and contact information for at least three references. Applicants should also arrange for those references to send letters directly to firstname.lastname@example.org by the application deadline. For full consideration applications should be submitted by November 1, 2019. Applications should be submitted through https://www.texastech.edu/careers/ using position number 18750BR.
