Colloquium

Andy Dorsett of Wolfram Research

WEDNESDAY February 21, 2018
3:40 PM
TKH ROOM 103

Mathematica and Wolfram:Alpha in Education and Research

During this free seminar, we will explore using Mathematica and Wolfram:Alpha for a wide variety of disciplines.  Attendees will not only see new features in Mathematica 11 and Wolfram:Alpha, but will also receive examples of this functionality to begin using immediately.  No experience with Mathematica or Wolfram:Alpha is required, and students are encouraged to attend.

Faculty Position in Astronomy/Astrophysics

The Department of Physics and Astronomy in the College of Arts and Sciences invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor with research interests in the area of theoretical or observational studies related to Fermi, Hubble, JWST, WFIRST, and other NASA missions are especially encouraged to apply. It is expected that the successful candidate will support and enhance research relationships with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) and engage undergraduate and graduate students in space science research. We seek outstanding applicants with a demonstrated track record of excellence in research and teaching. Successful candidates are expected to develop vigorous, extramurally funded research programs in their areas of expertise, actively participate in the Department's teaching and curriculum development at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and mentor undergraduate and graduate students. Evidence of interest and success in mentoring underrepresented minority students is highly desired. A commitment to increasing the diversity of the astronomical community must also be evidenced.

Howard University, a culturally diverse, comprehensive, research intensive and historically Black private university, provides an educational experience of exceptional quality at the undergraduate, graduate, and professional levels to students of high academic standing and potential, with particular emphasis upon educational opportunities for Black students. Howard University is classified as a Doctoral University: Higher Research Activity research by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. It is a residential campus of approximately 10,000 students located in the heart of the nation’s capital, Washington, DC.

The Department of Physics and Astronomy currently consists of 16 faculty members, conducting pure and applied research with specializations in condensed matter physics, computational physics, renewable energy, THz spectroscopy, nanoscience, biophysics, string theory, and optical spectroscopy. The Department offers BS, MS, and PhD degrees in physics.

Required Qualifications:

Earned doctorate in astronomy, astrophysics, physics, or a related discipline from an accredited institution; Record of scholarship, teaching, and professional service commensurate with the rank of assistant professor; Effective communication and organizational skills; and Grant writing experience.

Complete applications consist of a single PDF file containing

1) Cover letter addressing qualifications listed above; 2) Current curriculum vita; 3) Two-page statement of research accomplishments, interests and future plans; 4) Two-page statement of teaching experience and philosophy; and 5) Names and contact information for at least three references who will provide letters upon request from the search committee.

Completed applications should be addressed to the Chair of the search committee: Dr. Robert Catchings and submitted electronically to maralfred@howard.edu. Screening will begin on January 24, 2018 and end March 5, 2018. The desired starting date is August 15, 2018.

Howard University is an Equal Opportunity/Equal Access/Affirmative Action employer fully committed to achieving a diverse workforce. All individuals, including minorities, women, individuals with disabilities, and protected veterans are encouraged to apply.

Faculty Position in Physics

The Department of Physics and Astronomy in the College of Arts and Sciences invites applications for a tenure-track position at the rank of Assistant Professor.  The Department seeks an experimental physicist who specializes in condensed matter physics or materials related research with preference to those with backgrounds in nanoscale materials for renewable energy applications. Existing synthesis and characterization facilities are available to position the new faculty member to quickly advance their research initiative.  We seek outstanding applicants with a demonstrated track record of excellence in research and teaching. Successful candidates are expected to develop vigorous, extramurally funded research programs in their areas of expertise, actively participate in the Department's teaching and curriculum development at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and mentor undergraduate and graduate students. Evidence of interest and success in mentoring underrepresented minority students is highly desired.
