The William H. Miller III Department of Physics and Astronomy of the Johns Hopkins University invites applications for a faculty appointment in astrophysics. We invite applications from theorists, observers, and instrumentalists across all areas of astrophysics. This is an open-rank search, and candidates will be considered for appointment both at the assistant professor level and at higher ranks, as appropriate. The successful candidates will be expected to maintain an active research program and to teach at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.
The department is the recent recipient of a very large gift that will be used to expand dramatically the size of the faculty and endow substantial programs for prize postdocs and graduate students. The new faculty member will play a key role in our realization of this transformational opportunity.
Applicants should submit application materials via Interfolio to http://apply.interfolio.com/117532. Materials should include a letter expressing interest, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a teaching statement, and a short description of research plans, as well as a statement describing efforts (past, present, or future) to encourage diversity, inclusion, and belonging. Applicants who wish to be considered at the level of assistant professor should have three letters of recommendation submitted on their behalf to the same webpage.
