Endowed Chair Faculty Position in Astronomy/Astrophysics

The Homer L. Dodge Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Oklahoma (OU) invites applications for the Homer L. Dodge Endowed Chair in Astronomy and Astrophysics. We are searching for a candidate committed to steering the direction of the astronomy group and the department into national and international prominence. Qualified applicants in all areas of astronomy and astrophysics (theory, observation, and instrumentation) are encouraged to apply. The appointment is expected to begin in August 2022, at the rank of full, associate, or assistant professor. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. A significant start-up package is expected to enable the Chair to grow their research group and elevate the resources and recognition of the astrophysics group through collaboration and leadership. A compelling candidate will not only have a strong research port- folio, but also demonstrated strong interpersonal, team-building and innovation skills necessary to facilitate connections in the department and university as well as funding to build the prominence of our program.
