The Physics Department at Cornell University invites applications for a tenure-track faculty position pursuing theoretical astrophysics research. Candidates with experience in relativistic astrophysics, computational astrophysics, gravitational-wave astrophysics or theoretical cosmology are of particular interest, but we encourage applications from all areas of theoretical astrophysics.


We seek candidates with an established record of high-impact research to conduct an independent research program and to teach and advise our undergraduate and graduate students. A Ph.D. in physics or a closely related field is required.


Required materials are a cover letter, curriculum vitae with publication list, statement of research, statement of teaching and mentoring philosophy, and three letters of recommendation. Also required is a statement of diversity, equity and inclusion describing the applicant’s efforts and aspirations to promote equity, inclusion and diversity through teaching, research and service.
