Two postdoctoral positions are now available with the University of Alberta's stellar astrophysics group, with Profs. Craig Heinke
(firstname.lastname@example.org) and Gregory Sivakoff (email@example.com). There are additional postdoctoral opportunities with Profs. Erik
Rosolowsky (firstname.lastname@example.org), Natalia Ivanova (email@example.com), and Sharon Morsink (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Prof. Heinke focuses on X-ray (and optical/IR) observations of X-ray binaries and young neutron stars in supernova remnants. Prof. Sivakoff focuses on multiwavelength observations (radio through X-ray) of X-ray binaries and supermassive black holes, and the physics of accretion disks and relativistic jets.
Prof. Erik Rosolowsky will start at U. Alberta in July 2013. He will be seeking a postdoctoral researcher with an interest in star formation, the ISM or nearby galaxies. Interested parties are encouraged to contact him.
Our group, including also Natalia Ivanova and Sharon Morsink invites applications for CITA National Postdoctoral Fellowships. Additional financial, research, and travel support will be offered. Fellowship applicants should specify one or more professors they would like to work with, and are strongly encouraged to contact us early. Top candidates will also be considered for a Centennial Postdoctoral Fellowship (see URL above).
Each position offers a $47k (Canadian, similar to US dollars) annual salary and $5k/year in travel funding, along with health benefits, computing and publication support, and a relocation allowance. Start dates are negotiable.
All postdocs will be encouraged to pursue ongoing research efforts in their fields, collaborate with members of the stellar astrophysics group, and develop new projects. The U. of Alberta physics department also includes groups researching cosmology, gravity, plasma, space, and particle physics.
Applicants should send a CV, publication list, and statements of research interests (one page) and research experience (two pages) to any of the above faculty as PDF files by Nov. 1st, 2012. Applicants should arrange for three letters of reference to be sent
electronically by the above date.
