Job Description

The Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa invites applications for tenure-track, Assistant Astronomer faculty positions. The IfA faculty are sited at three facilities on the islands of O'ahu (on the Mānoa campus), Hawai'i, and Maui, with the majority of astronomers based on O'ahu in Honolulu (Mānoa).  All faculty regardless of location participate equally in the teaching program, research, and academic life at the IfA. The IfA has strong research groups in most areas of astrophysics, supported in part by access to all observational facilities on Maunakea and Haleakalā, with significant expertise in extragalactic, time domain, stellar, exoplanetary, planetary, and solar astronomy, as well as astronomical instrumentation.

Candidates in all areas of astronomy are encouraged to apply. In 2023-2024 the IfA seeks to fill five positions starting Fall 2024, four in Honolulu (on the Mānoa campus) and one in Hilo, as part of an ongoing faculty hiring plan through the 2020’s.
