UW-Madison is recruiting for faculty members in the areas of planetary astrochemistry and observational exoplanet spectroscopy.  These positions are the second and third in a campus-wide cluster hiring initiative on Origins of Life, Artificial Life, and Astrobiology (OoLALA; https://astrobio.wisc.edu/). Successful candidates will contribute to the cluster through their research, teaching, and interaction with the vibrant OoLALA community and the Wisconsin Center for Origins Research (WiCOR), a new interdisciplinary research initiative in the UW-Madison Astronomy Department. We invite candidates for these positions to consult the position vacancy listings (PVL 241623 and PVL 241624) at http://jobs.wisc.edu. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Chemistry, Geosciences, Atmospheric Sciences, Astronomy, Planetary Science, or a related field at the time of appointment and a record of peer-reviewed research publication in the field. We are especially interested in candidates who are committed to building an equitable and inclusive educational environment, and who can bring new perspectives on recruiting, mentoring, and educating students from diverse backgrounds.
