A tenure-track faculty position in Solar Physics at New Mexico State UniversitySeptember 12, 2019, from James McAteer
The Department of Astronomy at New Mexico State University invites applications for a new tenure-track faculty position in solar physics, with a focus on diagnosing the fundamental physical conditions in the Sun’s atmosphere through spectropolarimetry. The successful candidate will seek to establish and maintain an active teaching and research program that will contribute to the current solar and space sciences research and education program at NMSU in the advancement of new analytical tools in order to extract physical plasma parameters of the solar atmosphere (magnetic fields, velocities, thermodynamic quantities) from existing and future observational data.
The candidate will identify how their skills, background, and training are aligned to these objectives in spectropolarimetry. Examples include instrumentation, providing simulations for inversions, writing inversion codes, adding to existing codes, or running codes to extract plasma parameters. The successful candidate will have demonstrable synergies with faculty within the Department, and proposed research programs that connect with national observatories, including DKIST, the DST, or proposed facilities such as COSMO.
All applications must be submitted through the following link: https://jobs.nmsu.edu/postings/36545 .
The deadline for receipt of all application materials is November 1, 2019. Questions about the application process or the position should be addressed to: Dr. James McAteer, Chair, Faculty Search Committee, firstname.lastname@example.org
