Permanent Faculty Positions in Planetary Sciences
The Department of Physics and Space Sciences at the Florida Institute of Technology invites applications for up to two permanent faculty positions in planetary sciences. These positions may be at any rank: assistant through full professor. We seek to expand our current space sciences program to include planetary geology, atmospheres, magnetospheres, or interiors and/or exoplanets. For both positions, candidates must have a Ph.D. in physics, planetary sciences, space sciences, astronomy, or a related discipline. Successful candidates must demonstrate the ability to develop a vigorous externally funded research program as well as the enthusiasm and drive to teach and mentor undergraduate and graduate students. Candidates with experience in space instrumentation are particularly encouraged to apply.
Florida Tech is located on the eastern coast of central Florida, just south of the Kennedy Space Center. Information about the department and current research activities can be found at http://cos.fit.edu/pss/. To apply, please send a cover letter, CV, statement of research and teaching experience and interests, and the names of at least three references, preferably in a single PDF file, to email@example.com. The review of applications will begin immediately, and applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. Florida Tech is an equal opportunity employer.
