The Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering in the 
College of Engineering at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor 
invites applications for a tenure track faculty position in the field of 
space science with strong interest and expertise in plasma processes 
preferably of the near-Earth space environment. We seek candidates 
interested in advanced numerical methodologies and models and/or in the 
development, operation, and analysis of data from related spaceborne 
space science instruments. Although the position is open to all ranks, 
we especially seek candidates at the Assistant Professor level. We look 
for candidates who are capable of developing an internationally 
recognized research program, successfully competing for external 
funding, mentoring doctoral students, and participating in our 
educational programs at the graduate and undergraduate levels.  We 
welcome applications from candidates whose research addresses 
cross-disciplinary areas that complement our existing strengths in space 
sciences and engineering and the development of space instrumentation 
and missions.

Applications should include a cover letter, CV, research and teaching 
statements, a statement describing any activities, contributions, or 
plans related to supporting diversity, equity, and inclusion, and a list 
of four references with contact details. For full consideration, 
applications compiled into a single PDF should be received before 
December 15th, 2020. Applications should be addressed to 
clasp-fac-search at umich.edu. Questions about the position or application 
process can be directed to the search committee chair Chris Ruf 
(cruf at umich.edu). The availability of this position is contingent upon 
final University approval.

University of Michigan is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion. 
CLASP and the College of Engineering are especially interested in 
exceptionally well qualified candidates who will contribute, through 
their research, teaching, and service, to the department's goal of 
eliminating systemic racism and sexism by embracing our culture of

with disabilities, and veterans are encouraged to apply. The University

is a non-discriminatory, affirmative action Employer.
