We invite applications for multiple Postdoctoral Fellowships in Astrophysics to be held in the Department of Physics at McGill University. These are made possible by the endowment of the Lorne Trottier Chair in Astrophysics and Cosmology at McGill.
The McGill Astrophysics group currently includes 8 active faculty members. Research in our group covers theory, observations, and experiment, in cosmology, CMB, large scale structure, galaxy clusters, galaxy formation and evolution, gravitational lensing, high energy astrophysics, including ground-based gamma ray astronomy, the physics of compact objects, including multiwavelength observations of magnetars, radio pulsars and accreting neutron stars, nuclear astrophysics, and exoplanets. We also have strong ties to the early universe cosmology/high energy theory group. Further information on these research areas can be found at http://www.astro.physics.mcgill.ca/ .
The successful applicant will have a strong research record in theoretical, observational, or experimental astrophysics. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, list of publications, statement of research interests, and contact details of 3 referees online at http://dualcore.physics.mcgill.ca/PDF/ . Preference is given to applicants within 5 years of the PhD. All application materials including letters of recommendation must be received by the deadline of November 1st, 2012.
