Open Rank (Tenure-Track/Tenured) Faculty Position in Space Physics at UCLA

The UCLA Department of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences (EPSS) invites applications for a tenure- track/tenured faculty position in Space Physics at any rank/level. We encourage applicants from all sub- disciplines of space physics to apply, but we are particularly interested in candidates in the area of experimental space physics pertaining to the interaction of small solar system bodies, moons, or planets with solar winds or flowing plasmas (e.g., at asteroids, Mars, Uranus, or Galilean satellites). We welcome applicants whose experience in research, teaching, and community/collegial service has prepared them to contribute to our commitment to excellence and equity, diversity, and inclusion. Candidates are expected to hold a Ph.D. in Physics or a related field by the date of hire, July 1, 2022.

EPSS is a vibrant and collaborative department with faculty interested in planetary, geology, geochemistry, geophysics, paleobiology, and space physics. Space physics research and education at UCLA spans several departments, including faculty in the Departments of Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences and Physics & Astronomy in addition to EPSS. These departments have active research programs in physics of the solar wind, inner and outer magnetospheric physics, ionospheric physics (with connections to the neutral atmosphere), and space weather, utilizing numerical simulations, laboratory experiments, space-based and ground-based platforms. The ability of applicants to complement, and further contribute to UCLA's long-standing strength in space physics will be a consideration in evaluation in addition to their commitment to enhancing the diversity of EPSS faculty members, graduate student population, and majors within the field.

To apply, candidates must submit (a) a cover letter, (b) CV, (c) statement of research, (d) statement of teaching, (e) statement of contributions to equity, diversity, and inclusion, (f) writing samples, and (g) the names of three – five individuals familiar with the candidate's work who can serve as references.

UCLA offers over 300 undergraduate and graduate degree programs in a wide range of disciplines and enrolls about 26,000 undergraduate and about 12,000 graduate students from the United States and around the world every year.

UCLA features the College of Letters and Science, seven general campus professional schools, and four professional schools for the health sciences. The UCLA College of Letters and Science has 34 academic departments and 900 faculty, and houses the majority of UCLA's 129 undergraduate majors as well as the students in the Graduate Division of Letters and Sciences. The UCLA College Honors Program is also housed in the College. The College of Letters and Science's programs are divided into five academic divisions: humanities, social sciences, life sciences, physical sciences, and the International Institute. UCLA also offers certificate programs, undergraduate degree-credit and continuing education credits for non-full-time students through its UCLA Extension education program.

The 2010 edition of U.S. News & World Report ranked UCLA as the 24th best university in the nation and 32nd best in the world.
