Postdoc-to-Faculty Position in Astronomy & Planetary Science

Northern Arizona University (NAU) is hiring postdoctoral scholars for the Inclusive Academic Excellence in Scholars program in astronomy, planetary science, or any related field. This program provides an opportunity for focused preparation for success in a faculty role with emphasis on teaching in general studies, contributing to student success, and impactful research, while advancing the inclusion and diversity goals of our department, college, and university.

NAU is committed to student access and achievement as a primary driver of economic mobility and social impact. The intent of this program is to provide opportunities to develop and prepare new faculty for success in all areas of faculty effort (teaching, scholarship/creative activity, and service). Contingent on evaluation and successful development and performance in all responsibility areas, scholars will be considered for transition to full-time career track or tenure track faculty positions.

Interested applicants should submit a letter of interest and curriculum vita to Jamie Baxter ([email protected]), Assistant Director of Operations for the College of the Environment, Forestry, and Natural Science at NAU, as soon as possible. Review of applications will begin on May 1.

The NAU Department of Astronomy and Planetary Science (APS) empowers learning and success through close interactions between faculty and students that are fostered by an inclusive, collegial atmosphere. Our science investigates fundamental questions about the universe and our place in it, and our world-class research programs provide students with the skills needed to become leaders in astronomy and planetary science. Above all, we provide high-quality research and education services to the peoples of Arizona, and nurture an environment that is supportive of all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and world views.
