Assistant Professor in the Computational or Theoretical Astrophysics of Strongly Gravitating Systems
The Department of Physics and Space Science Center at the University of New Hampshire (UNH) invite applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor beginning August, 2017, in the area of gravitational astrophysics, with a particular emphasis on the numerical modeling of compact objects and their gravitational or electromagnetic radiation.
A team of scientists led by Marc Lessard of the University of New Hampshire Space Science Center launched an instrument-laden, four-stage sounding rocket from Norway's Andøya Space Center about 280 miles above Earth to study how particles move in a region near the North Pole where Earth's magnetic field is directly connected to the solar wind. The launch occurred Sunday, Dec. 13, at 2:34 a.m. EST.
