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 as PDF files. Alternatively, letters of reference may be sent to
