Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in astrophysics at Drexel University. The successful applicant will work
with Prof. Gordon Richards on the The Spitzer−IRAC Equatorial Survey (SpIES)---a warm Spitzer exploration program designed to map the
multiwavelength-rich SDSS Stripe 82 region with primary science goals of measuring quasar clustering and the quasar luminosity function at high-z.
The work will involve developing the pipeline to process the SpIES imaging data and validating the resulting products. The successful
candidate must have experience in processing of space- or ground-based near-IR imaging (preferably Spitzer-IRAC) and preference will be given to those applicants with a research background in AGNs.
Drexel University was a participant in the Sloan Digital Sky Survey and is currently involved in the LSST project. The Astrophysics Group
has interests in AGNs, cosmology, stellar dynamics, and high-performance computing.
This position is initially for two years and is contingent upon funding. Renewal for an additional year is possible, subject to
funding and satisfactory performance. The position will be filled as soon as possible, with a starting date as early as Jan. 2013 and no
later than Sept. 2013. Applicants must receive their Ph.D. prior to appointment. Applicants should send a CV, bibliography, statement of
research interests, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent directly to Prof. Richards (email@example.com). E-mail
applications are preferred and will be considered until the position is filled.
