Professor Mufson has been on the IU Astronomy faculty since 1977. He received a Ph.D from University of Chicago in 1973. He was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the National Radio Astronomy Observatory and the Marshall Space Flight Center. He typically teaches A100 (The Solar System), A115 (Birth and Death of the Universe), A221 (General Astronomy I), and A580 (Physical and Observational Cosmology).
