The Department of Physics at Montana State University invites applications for a tenure-track assistant professor position in observational astronomy, with a focus on, but not limited to, observations of systems with extreme gravitational fields, such as neutron stars and black holes, and cosmology. MSU hosts the recently established eXtreme Gravity Institute (www.montana.edu/xgi/), which conducts research spanning a broad range of topics, including gravitational waves and associated electromagnetic counterparts; neutron star structure; tests of general relativity; black holes and accretion disks.
Faculty members in the MSU physics department conduct research, teach undergraduate and graduate courses, and supervise graduate and undergraduate research. Candidates must show promise in both teaching and research. A Ph.D in physics, astronomy, or a related discipline is required by the start of employment. Applications from qualified minorities, women, veterans, and persons with disabilities are highly encouraged. Screening of applications will start October 24, 2016 and continue until the position is filled.
