The Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP) at NYU anticipates awarding two James Arthur Postdoctoral Fellowships to start in September 2013. Areas of specialization include theoretical high-energy physics, particle physics, cosmology, theoretical or observational astrophysics, and astroparticle physics. In addition, there are openings for research scientists supported by individual faculty.
The CCPP presently consists of Professors M. Blanton (observational astrophysics), K. Cranmer (experimental particle physics), S. Dubovsky (particle theory, astrophysics and cosmology), G. Dvali (particle theory, extra dimensions, cosmology), G. Farrar (particle astrophysics, cosmology, ultrahigh energy cosmic rays), G. Gabadadze (particle theory, gravity and cosmology), A. Gruzinov (theoretical astrophysics and cosmology), D. Hogg (galaxy astrophysics and observational cosmology), M. Kleban (string theory and cosmology), A. MacFadyen (high energy astrophysics, numerical simulations), M. Modjaz (observational astrophysics), M. Porrati (string theory), R. Scoccimarro (cosmology), and N. Weiner (particle and astroparticle theory, cosmology). The Center also benefits from close ties with Professors P. Huggins (planetary nebulae), A. Sirlin (electroweak theory), and D. Zwanziger (field theory, lattice gauge theory).
James Arthur Fellows pursue independent research projects, or work with others in the group, as their interests dictate. Postdocs benefit from the lively atmosphere of the Center and a vigorous visitors program. Astrophysics postdocs benefit from data access to Sloan Digital Sky Survey III and the opportunity to participate in the Pierre Auger collaboration and some aspects of the Palomar Transient Factory collaboration.
Appointments are usually for three years. Exceptional candidates will be considered for longer term appointments. Those proposing to come with funding from outside fellowships will be eligible for continuation of their appointment.
Applications must be submitted via the CCPP Online Application System located at http://cosmo.nyu.edu/opportunities.html. Your complete application must include a CV, publication list, statement of research interests, and a list of three people who will be submitting letters of recommendation. Complete applications received by December 3, 2012 will receive top priority.
