Position description The School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, invites applications for a tenure-track position in Experimental Space Physics. The appointment is expected to be at the Assistant Professor level, with appointments at a more senior level considered.

The University of Minnesota has a space physics research group with a long history of participation in successful space-based experiments. The group includes theoreticians and experimenters who study particle acceleration and reconnection throughout the heliosphere. Applications are encouraged from researchers working in any area related to space physics. This includes not only the plasmas of the Sun, its heliosphere, and planetary magnetospheres, but also includes related topics such as the plasma physics of exoplanets and stars, or the interaction of space plasma with the upper layers of Earth’s atmosphere. Members of the space physics group are also members of the Minnesota Institute for Astrophysics, offering abundant opportunity for collaborative research across many astrophysical areas. The group also enjoys collaborations with the Department of Aerospace Engineering on space-based instrumentation projects. Qualifications Candidates are expected to hold a Ph.D. in physics or astrophysics and should have demonstrated the potential to conduct a vigorous and significant research program as evidenced by their publication record and supporting letters from recognized leaders in the field. The ability to teach physics effectively at both the graduate and undergraduate levels is required. The candidate should be dedicated to fostering a diverse and inclusive environment, and should be committed to working well with others. Application Requirements Applications must be submitted online.

All materials including letters of reference must be received by December 3, 2021 for full consideration, although applications will continue to be accepted until the position is filled.
