The Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics Center for the Evolution of the Elements (JINA-CEE) at Michigan State University (MSU) is searching for a talented individual to serve as Managing Director. JINA-CEE is a multi-institutional NSF Physics Frontiers Center dedicated to bringing together nuclear physicists, astrophysicists, and astronomers to address open questions related to the origin of
the elements and the properties of neutron star matter.JINA-CEE consists of a unique network of four core institutions (MSU, ArizonaState University, University of Notre Dame, and University of Washington) and18 associated institutions in six countries. At MSU, JINA-CEE takes advantageof the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory, the forefront facility inthe United States for nuclear physics with rare isotope beams, and the strongastronomy group that enjoys guaranteed access to the 4m SOAR Telescope.

Spartans work every day to advance the common good in uncommon ways.Together, we tackle some of the world?s toughest problems to find solutions that make life better?from alternative energy to better food safety to breakthrough medical and environmental applications achieved through rare isotope research.We teach. We explore and we discover. We collaborate and lead. We innovate, inspire, and empow...er. We achieve our potential and create circumstances that help our students and others achieve theirs.We're good at it, and we've been at it for more than 150 years.The nation?s pioneer land-grant university, MSU began as a bold experiment that democratized higher education and helped bring science and innovation into everyday life. The revolutionary concept became a model for the nation.Today, MSU is one of the top research universities in the world?on one of the biggest, greenest campuses in the nation. Home to nationally ranked and recognized academic, residential college, and service-learning programs, we?re a diverse community of dedicated students and scholars, athletes and artists, scientists and leaders.In ways both practical and profound, we work to create a stronger, more sustainable, and more hopeful future for all.
