Alicia Aarnio starting faculty job!

Alicia has accepted a faculty position in the Physics & Astronomy department at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. UNCG is the third largest in the NC system, and until the 60’s, was a women’s college. Today, 2/3 of the undergraduates are women, the University is a federally recognized MSI, and it maintains strong partnerships with a neighboring Historically Black University (NC A&T). The city of Greensboro is known for being home to the most influential sit-ins of the civil rights movement in 1960. UNCG is investing in growing its physics and astronomy program and observational facilities, and Alicia will be kept very busy roboticizing and building a new solar/stellar spectrograph for the Three College Observatory for both teaching and research purposes.

Congratulations from all of us at University of Michigan and former group members !

Good luck with your new position!
