The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley is accepting applications for a tenure track Assistant Professor position, with a research focus in the areas of Gravitational-Wave Astronomy, Radio-Astronomy and Astrophysics, to begin in Fall 2021. The department has strong research groups in this area, with several members of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration working in the areas of continuous wave and supernova data analysis, lasers, optics R&D, detector characterization and noise modeling, and electromagnetic follow-up. Additionally, Radio-astronomy research focuses on transient phenomena and their detection in the low radio-frequency range. This research is conducted at several state-of-the-art laboratories at UTRGV, as well as through collaborative work with the two LIGO national laboratories in Washington State and Louisiana, the nationwide Low Frequency All Sky Monitor (LoFASM) network and a dedicated gravitational waves optical follow-up facility in the Southern Hemisphere. The Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) is available for computationally intensive tasks. The successful candidate should complement these research areas, but outstanding candidates in closely related fields will also be considered. A new PhD in Physics has been recently approved by the University of Texas system and is expected to receive state approval soon.

Responsibilities of the position include delivering instruction in physics at the undergraduate, Masters, and Ph.D. level; conducting research, including attracting extramural funding; and participating in service activities within the department, university, and community.

Minimum qualifications: A PhD in Physics, Astronomy, Astrophysics, or any other related discipline.
