Job Announcement Text: 

The Department of Astrophysical & Planetary Sciences (APS) at the University of Colorado Boulder invites applications for a tenure­track Assistant Professor position to begin August 2018. We are particularly interested in candidates working in the astrophysics of time-dependent and transient phenomena, broadly construed, from theoretical, observational, and/or data-analysis perspectives. We will also consider exceptional candidates working in other areas of astrophysics.

The APS department is affiliated with several research centers and institutes (CASA, JILA, LASP) and offers a diverse set of 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, the SDSS IV Survey and has institutional access to the Las Cumbres Observatory; the successful candidate would also have access to local facilities 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 2020, is located on the Boulder campus. The APS department aims to promote an inclusive and supportive climate, and we recognize that the effectiveness and creativity of a group is strengthened by contributions from diverse perspectives. We therefore welcome candidates who have demonstrated leadership toward building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment. This position requires a commitment to teaching in our undergraduate and graduate programs and the ability to develop and conduct an independent research program. Candidates for this position must hold a Ph.D. or equivalent degree.

Application materials must be submitted electronically at www.cu.edu/cu-careers, to posting #10146. Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications, and a short description of research and teaching interests. Please also provide names and email addresses of three references who will be asked to upload their letters to the site.

We will begin considering applications (including letters of recommendation) on November 17, 2017, and we will accept applications until the position is filled. The University of Colorado is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
