Job Announcement Text: 

The Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences (APS) Department at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU Boulder) is conducting a search for up to two new faculty members at the Assistant Professor rank.  We seek applications from candidates across all areas of astrophysics and planetary science, including fields of strategic priority for APS, which are exoplanets, extragalactic astrophysics, and transient phenomena. These positions require the ability to develop and conduct an innovative independent research program, a dedication to teaching in our undergraduate and graduate programs, and a commitment to supporting the diverse student populations in our department. The APS department recognizes that the effectiveness and creativity of a group is strengthened by contributions from a broad range of perspectives.  As such, we particularly welcome candidates from groups that are historically underrepresented in our field and/or have demonstrated leadership toward building an equitable and inclusive scholarly environment.

About the Department:  The APS department is affiliated with several research centers and institutes (CASA, JILA, LASP) and offers ample resources for teaching and research, including access to observational, instrumental, and theoretical facilities. The University of Colorado is a member of the ARC 3.5-meter and ARCSAT 0.5-meter telescopes, as well as two new 0.5-meter telescopes at the on-campus Sommers-Bausch Observatory. CU Boulder is an institutional member of the SDSS IV and V Surveys and has institutional access to the Las Cumbres Observatory.  Successful candidates would also have access to the CU Boulder facility for high-performance computing and the development of space-borne and ground-based hardware. The headquarters of the National Solar Observatory, which expects to begin operations of the DKIST 4-meter solar telescope in 2019, is located on the Boulder campus.  Additional information about faculty life and expectations in APS and at CU Boulder can be found at www.colorado.edu/aps/tenure-track-faculty-job-description-and-duties

Qualifications: Candidates for this position must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree in astrophysics, planetary science, or a related field.  

Application Instructions: Application materials must be submitted electronically at https://jobs.colorado.edu/jobs/JobDetail/?jobId=13872 , to posting #13872. Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications, a description of research interests, a teaching and mentoring statement, and a statement of diversity and inclusion goals (see www.colorado.edu/aps/faculty-application-guidance for guidance on these items).  Please also provide names and email addresses of three references who may be asked to upload their letters to the site.  Applications submitted by December 1, 2018 will receive full consideration.  The position will remain open until filled. The University of Colorado is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
