Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Theoretical Solar Physics at New Jersey Institute of Technology, USA

October 28, 2019, from Wenda Cao

The Physics Department at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) is seeking candidates for a tenure-track faculty position at the assistant or associate professor level in Theoretical Solar Physics with an anticipated start date in Fall 2020.

We are recruiting a modeler who can develop an independent research program and collaborate with the other faculty members in the department and the Center for Solar-Terrestrial Research. The preference will be given to candidates who will carry out MHD or other modeling involving the data from the 1.6-meter Goode Solar Telescope (GST) at Big Bear Solar Observatory, as well as achieve discovery science in understanding solar activity in high resolution. NJIT has built and now operates the largest aperture and highest-resolution GST in the world. The research can further be advanced in anticipation of the operation of 4-meter DKIST. The successful candidate is expected to teach both undergraduate and graduate courses, as well as develop new courses in areas of solar-terrestrial physics, space weather, and plasma physics.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in Astronomy, Physics, Astrophysics, Space Physics, or closely related areas, with excellent oral and written communication skills, and successful research experience as demonstrated by accomplishments, publications, and research grants.

Please submit all documents online by December 31, 2019 at https://njit.csod.com/ats/careersite/JobDetails.aspx?site=1&id=1801 including: (1) a cover letter, (2) a current version of your curriculum vitae, (3) five-year research plan, (4) documentation of teaching experience and teaching philosophy and (5) three letters of recommendation.
