Postdoctoral Research Associate in Theoretical Gamma-Ray Astrophysics
Naval Research Laboratory

The High Energy Space Environment Branch (http://heseweb.nrl.navy.mil/ ) of the Naval Research Laboratory invites applications for a postdoctoral position in theoretical astrophysics. The research will focus on the scientific results anticipated from the Gamma-ray Large Area Space Telescope, which includes studies of gamma-ray bursts, blazars, pulsars, cosmic rays, and the unidentified EGRET gamma-ray sources. About one-half of the effort will be devoted to the development of theoretical models of high-energy sources. Associated with this effort will be a program of software development for testing theoretical models with GLAST data. The position would be administered by the National Research Council and would have a salary of $60,120 per year. The program is open to US citizens and permanent residents at the time of the appointment who have received their PhDs within the past 5 years.

The application deadlines are February 1st, May 1st, and August 1st. A candidate will be required to write a short proposal outlining his or her research goals, which will be reviewed by an independent committee. For more information, contact Dr. Charles Dermer, Code 7653, Naval Research Laboratory, Washington, DC, 20375-5352. Phone (202)767-2965, e-mail: dermer@gamma.nrl.navy.mil . NRL is an equal opportunity employer.
