We invite astrophysics applications for a McGill Tomlinson Postdoctoral Fellowship to be held in the Physics Department at McGill University.
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/ . All application materials including letters of recommendation must be received by the deadline of November 1st, 2012.
Note that the requirements of the Tomlinson Fellowship are that applicants must have a graduate and undergraduate equivalent GPA greater than 3.7 out of 4. If selected to be nominated for a Tomlinson Fellowship, applicants will be asked to provide official university transcripts by November 7th, 2012.
