SALI Senior Professor in Physics (Astrophysics, Geophysics or Theoretical Physics) – Closing date extended to 30 June 2020

Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates for a new post of Senior Professor in Physics (astrophysics, geophysics or theoretical physics) under the Senior Academic Leadership Initiative (SALI). Applications are sought in line with the requirements set out in Ireland’s Higher Education Authority 2019 SALI Call Document.  The post of Senior Professor is the most senior academic position in DIAS.

DIAS has been awarded this post, under this unique initiative, to help address female under-representation at the most senior academic level in the above areas.   This senior academic leadership role will enable the successful candidate to play a key role in shaping their School and the Institute.

The successful candidate will be operating at the forefront of their field of research and will have a proven capacity for providing effective leadership within their discipline. 

DIAS, as the world’s second institute for advanced studies, has for 80 years pushed the boundaries of discovery and, today, it is a globally-embedded institution that attracts the highest calibre researchers from around the world.

In line with the objectives of the HEA SALI Call 2019, applications from highly qualified female candidates will be prioritised within the boundary of what is legally permissible, in order to address their underrepresentation.  However, preferential consideration of female candidates is excluded if other reasons worthy of legal protection prevail. In exceptional circumstances, applications from candidates who are in a minority or protected under Irish social legislation, or who also belong to an underrepresented minority in academic posts may be considered, where they clearly articulate in a separate eligibility statement, as part of their application, reasons worthy of legal protection as to why they should be considered.  See Applicant Information.

Applications should be submitted through the DIAS online e-recruitment system: https://dias.ie/SALIseniorprofphysics2020

Further details on the post together with the application procedures can also be found here   The extended closing date for applications is 30th June 2020.

DIAS is committed to gender balance, diversity and inclusion.
