The Institute for Astronomy (IfA) at the University of Hawaii invites applications for two tenure-track assistant-level faculty positions in any field of astrophysics, planetary science, or solar physics, including observation, theory, and instrumentation.

Duties include undertaking a program of independent research, teaching typically one graduate or undergraduate core course per year, and contributing to the academic and scientific life of the IfA. Applicants should have a Ph.D. in astronomy, physics or closely related areas as well as successful research experience as demonstrated by accomplishments, publications and letters of recommendation. At least two years of post-doctoral research are desirable but not essential. Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.
