Physics and Space Sciences
Two Faculty Positions in Astronomy/Astrophysics and Space Physics
The Department of Physics and Space Sciences at the Florida Institute of Technology invites applications for two faculty positions. These positions may be at any rank, assistant through full professor. While outstanding applicants from all fields of research will be considered, we are interested in candidates who are committed to teaching at the undergraduate level and can develop leading research programs in astrophysics and space physics.
In astrophysics, we are interested particularly in candidates working in the fields of star and/or planetary system formation, taking advantage of the exciting new vistas being opened in the radio, sub-mm and infrared.
In space physics, we are particularly interested in candidates whose specialties include solar, magnetospheric, heliospheric, ionospheric physics or plasma physics.
The successful candidates will have access to the Ortega telescope in Florida and the SARA facilities at Kitt Peak, Cerro Tololo and La Palma.
Florida Tech is located on the east coast of central Florida, just south of the Kennedy Space Center. Information about the Department and current research activity can be found at http://cos.fit.edu/pss/ and http://astro.fit.edu. Interested candidates may also contact Dr. Joseph Dwyer, PSS Department Head, at email@example.com.
To apply, please send in a single PDF a cover letter, CV, statement of research and teaching experience and interests, and contact information for at least three references to firstname.lastname@example.org. The review of applications will begin on January 1. However, applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Florida Tech is an equal opportunity employer.
