promotion to associate professor with tenure

Today I received my official letter from the Chancellor at UC Davis that (as of July 1) I will be promoted to Associate Professor with tenure. I sincerely acknowledge and thank in particular all of my mentors in (astro)physics over the last ~18 years who helped me arrive at this point.

Sarah Loebman to start as assistant professor at UC Merced

Sarah Loebman

We are so excited that Sarah Loebman has accepted a faculty position at the University of California, Merced, where she will start as an assistant professor in their Department of Physics in fall 2020! We are doubly excited because, as one of their two inaugural astrophysics faculty, Sarah will start a new astrophysics program within their department. Fortunately for us, she will stay with our group at UC Davis for another year to finish her NASA Hubble Fellowship and Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship. Congratulations Sarah!!

real job gets real

Having been on leave (and pretending still to be a postdoc) over the last year, today I fully assume my position as Assistant Professor of Physics at UC Davis. Gulp.
