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.
