JOB OPENING: Faculty Position in Solar-Terrestrial Physics, New Jersey Institute of Technology
From: Andrew Gerrard, Center for Solar-Terrestrial Research, New Jersey Institute of Technology (gerrard at njit.edu <http://njit.edu/>)
A faculty position is available within the Center for Solar-Terrestrial Research (CSTR) and the Physics Department at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). Appointment is anticipated at the rank of Assistant or Associate Professor of Physics, with a possibility of tenure for exceptional applicants, and anticipated to start in January 2016. At present there are 19 tenure track/tenured faculty in the NJIT Physics Department – including 4 members which compose CSTR (Cao, Gerrard, Gary, and Wang). CSTR is also composed of 2 Distinguished Research Professors (Goode and Lanzerotti), 10 Research Professors, 11 Research Engineers, 2 Administrative Assistants, and a number of post-doctoral fellows and Ph.D. graduate students. CSTR operates a number of major ground based observing facilities, while having an expanding presence on campus in Newark, NJ. These remote facilities include the Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO), the Owens Valley Solar Array (OVSA), the Second-generation Optimized Fabry-Pérot Doppler Imager (SOFDI) in Peru, and the Automated Geophysical Observatories (AGO) distributed across the Antarctic iceshelf. These facilities give CSTR-NJIT unique observational facilities in optical-infrared and radio solar astronomy, as well as low, middle and upper atmospheric observations – enabling studies spanning the Sun’s surface through its extended atmosphere and on the Earth’s atmosphere. Further, CSTR is the PI organization in the NASA Van Allen Probes mission of the NASA Living With a Star (LWS) program.
