Robert M. Walker Distinguished Lecture Series Public Lecture
The Department of Physics at Washington University in St. Louis invites applications to fill a tenure-track faculty opening in Experimental Space Physics. We are primarily looking for a candidate who will interact with a vibrant research group that uses microanalysis of extraterrestrial materials to provide insights into nucleosynthesis, formation and processing of dust in a variety of astrophysical settings, and the origin/ evolution of the solar system. However, we will also consider scientists whose research falls broadly in the area of space-physics/astrophysics, and will add significantly to or complement the research being carried out in the Physics Department (http://www.physics.wustl.edu) and the research in adjoining Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences (http://www.eps.wustl.edu), which is conducting a parallel search in geochemistry. The appointment will begin Fall 2015 and includes membership in the McDonnell Center for the Space Sciences, a world-class intellectual cluster in the field of space sciences (MCSS.wustl.edu).
