Dear Colleagues,

I'd like to draw your attention to a continuing Level B/C position in the School of Mathematics and Physics at The University of Queensland:

Faculty position in Astrophysics

The School of Mathematics and Physics seeks to recruit a total of four women (two in mathematics and two in physics) to continuing teaching and research positions at Academic Level B/C. The positions are open to women and those who identify as women. This recruitment strategy is aimed at continuing to improve the diversity of the School’s academic staff, and to demonstrate its commitment to gender equity.

One of these four positions will be in astrophysics. The appointee to this position will have a developed research program in an area of astrophysics that complements or supplements the School’s research strengths.  Research in astrophysics at UQ includes: cosmology, galaxy evolution, stellar systems, extra-solar planets, gravitational waves, and fundamental physics, with strengths in computational, data-intensive, and large-survey science.  The successful appointee will expand the research profile of the School in new and exciting directions, while forming synergistic collaborations with one or more of the existing research strengths in UQ astrophysics. They will have the opportunity to capitalise on Australia’s membership in the European Southern Observatory (ESO), the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) and its pathfinders, and/or the Rubin Observatory’s Legacy Survey of Space and Time (LSST).  They can work with local members of the Dark Energy Survey (DES), Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI), and 4-metre Multi-Object Spectroscopic Telescope (4MOST); and will have access to the UQ and national astronomy supercomputing facilities.

This is a full-time (100% FTE) continuing position at an Academic Level B or Level C, commensurate with relevant skills and qualifications. The closing date for applications is 9 January 2023. Further information about the position, selection criteria and details on how to apply can be found at the following website:
