Professor of Observational Astrophysics or Cosmology
Maynooth University is seeking to appoint an outstanding academic as Professor in Observational Astrophysics or Cosmology. The successful applicant will contribute to, and strengthen, existing capabilities of the Departments of Theoretical Physics and Experimental Physics. Applicants should have a clearly articulated and ambitious program of research and teaching that aligns with our aims and policy responses in line with strategic national and international priorities and Ireland’s membership of the European Space Agency and the European Southern Observatory.
The recruitment of a high-profile academic to this strategic area of Observational Astrophysics and Cosmology will augment our international reputation in research and teaching by drawing together, consolidating and building upon existing Maynooth University strengths in areas of Astrophysics and Cosmology. Candidates who combine these areas of study with teaching skills are also welcomed.
Maynooth University is committed to a strategy in which the primary university goals of excellent research and scholarship and outstanding education are interlinked and equally valued. Professors will be expected to provide significant intellectual leadership, through a demonstrated commitment to both education and research, and, also, to contribute to the effective leadership and management of the physics departments, faculty and the university.
