The Role

Maynooth University is seeking to appoint an outstanding academic as Professor in Observational Astrophysics or Cosmology. The successful applicant will contribute to, and strengthen, existing capabilities of the Departments of Theoretical Physics and Experimental Physics. As this post is at the most senior academic grade in Maynooth University, applicants should have a demonstrated record in both research and teaching, and a clearly articulated and ambitious program of research and teaching that aligns with our aims and policy responses in line with strategic national and international priorities and Ireland’s membership of the European Space Agency and the European Southern Observatory. Professor A is the highest academic rank in Maynooth University and carries leadership responsibilities commensurate with the high level of the post.

The recruitment of a high-profile academic to this strategic area of Observational Astrophysics and Cosmology will augment our international reputation in research and teaching by drawing together, consolidating and building upon existing Maynooth University strengths in areas of Astrophysics and Cosmology. Candidates who combine these areas of study with teaching skills are also welcomed. Current astrophysics research expertise in Maynooth University includes instrument design, observations of star forming regions, theoretical modelling of black hole formation and large-scale structure modelling. Candidates working in any of these, or related areas, are encouraged to apply.

Maynooth University is committed to a strategy in which the primary university goals of excellent research and scholarship and outstanding education are interlinked and equally valued. Professors will be expected to provide significant intellectual leadership, through a demonstrated commitment to both education and research, and, also, to contribute to the effective leadership and management of the physics departments, faculty and the university.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • A outstanding record of research, reflected in an excellent publication profile;
  • A strong academic record as a university teacher and an educational innovator;
  • A strong track record of external research funding;
  • The capacity to offer strong academic leadership within the research centre, department, and across the University;
  • Demonstrated management and administrative skills;
  • Excellent interpersonal and communication skills;
  • The ability to build effective relationships with a wide variety of internal and external colleagues;
  • Demonstrated that they are eligible to be considered for the role under the Senior Academic Leadership Initiative.
