Annonce transmise par Tom Berger (CU Boulder, USA)
The Aerospace Engineering Sciences (AES), Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences (APS), and Physics Departments at the University of Colorado are conducting a search for a three-year, non-tenure track, Visiting Faculty position with a research focus on improving predictions of space weather phenomena or its effects on technological systems.
Applicants in a broad range of research areas related to solar physics, space sciences, or aerospace engineering will be considered. Candidates whose research will benefit from, or contribute to, the goals of the National Solar Observatory (NSO), which is headquartered at the University of Colorado Boulder and operates the Daniel K. Inouye Solar Telescope as well as the National Integrated Synoptic Program are of particular interest. A research focus on long- or short-term solar influences on the earth's space environment (including magnetosphere, ionosphere, thermosphere, or mesosphere) and aerospace systems (including cislunar, HEO, GEO, MEO, or LEO) is also highly valued.
Candidates are sought who will develop an innovative research program, who have a dedication to teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and who share our commitment to supporting a diverse student population. The successful candidate will play a leading role in the Hale Collaborative Graduate Education program (COLLAGE), which uses remote learning to bring students and faculty from different campuses together for a collaborative research and classroom experience, https://nso.edu/students/collage.
It is anticipated that the position will begin in spring or summer 2022, with teaching obligations starting fall 2022.
Candidates must have an earned Ph.D. or equivalent degree, or expect to have completed their Ph.D. at the time of starting the appointment, in a field appropriate to one of the sponsoring departments. Good communication skills and an interest in developing new methods for remote learning are desirable. Prior teaching experience will be viewed as a strength but is not required for consideration.
The University of Colorado Boulder recognizes that the effectiveness and creativity of an endeavor is strengthened by contributions from a broad range of perspectives. As such, we strongly welcome and encourage candidates from groups that are historically underrepresented in our field, or candidates who have demonstrated ability/interest to cultivate and advocate for an environment of diversity and inclusion based on the position's responsibilities.
