1. Conference on Formation and Evolution of Globular Clusters 
From: Fred Rasio [rasionorthwestern.edu] 
"Formation and Evolution of Globular Clusters" 
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, UC Santa Barbara 
January 12 - 16, 2009 
Globular clusters are complex astrophysical systems governed by 
stellar dynamics, stellar evolution, the properties and the dynamical 
history of their host galaxies, as well as the interplay among all 
these elements. The formation and evolution of globular clusters is a 
subject with implications for all areas of astrophysics, from 
cosmology and galaxy formation to stellar evolution. There has been 
extraordinary recent progress, both at the observational level (e.g., 
from Hubble Space Telescope and Chandra observations of both Galactic 
and extragalactic clusters) and in theoretical work (e.g., from N-body 
simulations of globular cluster dynamics on supercomputers). 
The three main themes of this conference are: 
1. Dynamical modelling of globular cluster evolution 
2. Compact objects in Galactic and extragalatic globular clusters 
3. Formation and evolution of globular cluster systems 
This will be the opening conference for a 3-month KITP program on the same subject; please see http://www.kitp.ucsb.edu/activities/auto/?id=948 for more information. 
Organizers: Fred Rasio, Alison Sills, Enrico Vesperini, and Steve Zepf 
2. Assistant Professor of Physics, Office of Natural Sciences and Mathematics,  
the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey 
From: WIPHYS February 21, 2008 
Qualifications: Ph.D. in Physics required. Hands-on experience as an 
experimentalist and postdoctoral experience desirable.  Description: 
Teaching load is 12 hours/semester, with most courses carrying 4 - 6 
hours of credit.  Primary teaching responsibilities will include the 
teaching of introductory and advanced level physics courses and 
accompanying laboratories, developing courses in the candidate's area 
of expertise, as well as participation in the College's General 
Studies offerings.  Excellences in teaching and extensive experience 
as a hands-on experimentalist are expected.  Ph.D. required and 
post-doctoral experience would be a plus.  Salary commensurate with 
experience and qualifications. The successful candidate will also be 
encouraged to develop a research program supported by external grants 
and fostering faculty-mentored student collaboration.  The College 
provides several competitive internal grant programs to provide 
project initiation.  Opportunities for scholarly activity could 
include participation in the College's large-scale alternative energy 
projects as well as research collaborations at the William J. Hughes 
Technical Center of the Federal Aviation Administration located 5 
miles from campus. 
Salary:  depending on qualifications and experience 
To apply: Send a letter of application, resume, a brief statement 
about your teaching and learning philosophies as well as your research 
goals, and three letters of recommendation to: Dean Dennis Weiss, 
School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, The Richard Stockton 
College of New Jersey, PO Box 195, Pomona, NJ 08240-0195 . Anticipated 
Start Date is September 1, 2008.  
Screening Begins: Late January and ends when position is filled.
