The Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering (CLaSP) in the College of Engineering at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position with expertise in the broad space sciences and space weather area, spanning from heliosphere to ionosphere-thermosphere sciences; both for science investigations and for space weather forecast and impact applications.
The CLaSP department welcomes expertise in the areas of experimental/observational (satellite or ground-based instrumentation) research, theoretical research and numerical modeling, and data-driven research (including machine learning). We are especially interested in candidates who can bridge and strengthen our existing research and teaching portfolio in space sciences and engineering. Although the position is open to all ranks, we especially seek candidates at the Assistant Professor level.
We look for candidates capable of developing an internationally recognized research program, successfully competing for external funding, mentoring undergraduate and doctoral students, participating in our educational mission and programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and positively contributing to the culture, diversity, and collaborative nature of the department, college, and university.
Required: A PhD in a subject related to space sciences or other relevant disciplines in sciences or engineering is required by the time of the appointment.
Desired Qualifications: Experience in experimental, observational or computational space sciences and space weather research.
This position may be underfilled at a lower classification depending on the qualifications of the selected candidate. The University of Michigan conducts background checks on all job candidates upon acceptance of a contingent offer and may use a third party administrator to conduct background checks. Background checks are performed in compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
Job openings are posted for a minimum of seven calendar days. The review and selection process will start on November 1, 2023. This opening may be removed from posting boards and filled anytime after the minimum posting period has ended.
