Description

The Department of Astronomy & Astrophysics at The University of Chicago invites applications for tenured Associate Professor in any area of observational, experimental, theoretical, and computational astrophysics.

The University of Chicago is a founding partner of the Giant Magellan Telescope, and members of the Department have access to the twin 6.5-m Magellan Telescopes. Computational astrophysics is supported by access to high-performance computing through the Research Computing Center at the University and through connections to Argonne National Laboratory and Fermilab. The University of Chicago has an inherently crosscutting and interdisciplinary structure that is very supportive of newly emerging research opportunities and is open to the possibility of appointments with other departments. Department members are also involved in the Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics, the Enrico Fermi Institute, Fermilab, and Argonne National Laboratory.

All University departments and institutes are charged with building a faculty from a diversity of backgrounds and with diverse viewpoints, to cultivating an inclusive community that values freedom of expression, and to welcoming and supporting all their members.

We seek candidates with an established record of high-impact research to conduct an independent research program, and to teach and advise our undergraduate and graduate students.
