Time moves on. I just noticed that an advertisement has appeared for my old job at Cardiff University.
Faculty Position in Theoretical Astrophysics or Cosmology
(Senior Lecturer/Reader/Professor depending on experience)
The School of Physics and Astronomy at Cardiff University has an immediate vacancy for a permanent faculty position in Theoretical Astrophysics or Cosmology. Applications are particularly welcome from applicants who can work closely with existing observational astronomers in the School. The position can be at any level from Senior Lecturer to full Professor depending on the experience of the appointed candidate.
The appointee will be expected to strengthen further the existing programme and have demonstrated a world-class programme of research. The appointee will also be expected to teach theoretical astrophysics and physics courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
Further information about the School may be found at http://www.astro.cf.ac.uk/ and further details about employment at Cardiff University as well as downloadable application forms may be found on the University website at http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/jobs/ under vacancy number 1046BR.
Informal enquiries regarding this position may be made to Professor Walter Gear, Head of School (Walter.Gear@astro.cf.ac.uk).
If the person that eventually gets the job applies as a result of seeing the advert here it would be rather ironic! I’d consider applying for it myself, but it says the applicant must “have demonstrated a world-class programme of research”, which clearly rules me out!Follow @telescoper
