Applicants are sought with interest in any of the following topics:
galaxy evolution, interplay between star formation and AGN activity, epoch of reionization, interpretation of galaxy properties from emission/absorption lines and/or broad-band spectral energy distributions. Skills in analyzing complex, multi-wavelength data sets associated with studies of galaxy evolution and/or experience in (sub)millimeter/radio astronomy and/or interferometry would be an asset, but are not considered a requirement.
The successful candidate will take a leading role in studies of the molecular interstellar medium in high-redshift galaxies, including (but not restricted to) observations with large interferometers such as the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) and the Atacama Large (sub)Millimeter Array (ALMA), and preparatory studies for CCAT. Ample proprietary multiwavelength data will be available to the successful candidate to establish a strong publication record by the end of the appointment.
The position is offered for 1 year, renewable for up to three years based upon satisfactory performance, and is expected to start by September 2013, but a start date as early as January 2013 would be equally acceptable.
For full consideration, applicants are asked to submit a cv, list of publications, and a statement of current and future research interests electronically by November 15, 2012. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Please also arrange to have three letters of reference sent electronically or by mail to Lynda Sovocool, email@example.com, 106 Space Sciences, Cornell Campus, Ithaca, NY 14853.
Cornell University is an equal opportunity employer.
