Dear Dr. Whitman,

We have a Space Plasma Physics faculty position open at the University 
of Minnesota.  See the information below.  What do we need to do to 
publicize this position in SHINE?

Julie Murphy
for the Chair of the Space Plasma Physics Faculty Search Committee

*Faculty Position in Space Plasma Physics
University of Minnesota
The School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Minnesota, Twin 
Cities invites applications for a tenure track position in the area of 
Experimental Space Plasma Physics. The appointment is expected to be at 
the Assistant Professor level. This position is supported by a grant 
from the National Science Foundation for Faculty Development in the 
Space Sciences. Candidates are expected to hold a Ph.D. in physics, 
astrophysics or a related discipline and should have demonstrated the 
potential to conduct a vigorous and significant experimental 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 successful applicant will be joining a department with active 
programs in both experimental and theoretical space plasma physics. The 
experimental space physics group has played important roles in 
instrument development and/or scientific analysis of data from NASA and 
ESA funded projects including Ulysses, Polar, FAST, Wind, Cluster, and 
rocket flights. The group is currently involved in the Van Allen Probes 
Mission, STEREO, and Solar Probe Plus. Experimentalists in any field in 
space plasma physics are encouraged to apply. Applicants in Solar 
Physics, Heliospheric Physics, Planetary and Terrestrial Magnetospheric 
Physics, and Ionospheric Physics are of special interest. The successful 
applicant will be expected to play a leadership role in new programs 
involving spacecraft, Cube-Sats, sub-orbital rockets, or balloons. The 
starting date for the position is negotiable and could be as early as 
July 1, 2015.

Candidates for this position (Requisition #193936) must go to 
and submit an application online. Application materials must include a 
cover letter, a current C.V. including a list of publications, a 
statement of research interests, a statement of teaching interests, and 
a list of at least three references including complete addresses and 
contact information.

Candidates must arrange to have letters of reference (signed and on 
official letterhead) sent directly to spacephys14 at physics.umn.edu 
<mailto:spacephys14 at physics.umn.edu> as PDF files. Alternatively, 
letters of reference may be sent to

Professor Ronald Poling
