The Computational Astrophysics group at the Univ. of Notre Dame invites applications for a postdoctoral position in computational
astrophysics. The group is actively involved in a large number of extremely interesting computational projects in a wide variety of astrophysical fields. A general interest in the areas of relativistic astrophysics, accretion disc physics, compact objects, supernovae, turbulence, jets, outflows, star and planet formation, interstellar medium, etc. is desirable, but strong applicants from any area will be considered. Prior experience in carrying out astrophysical simulations would be an asset because the projects do involve high performance computation. Knowledge of object-oriented programming either in F90 or C++ is also desirable. The group has access to large supercomputers at the university and national level. The projects are all science-oriented and the positions would give the successful applicant an excellent opportunity to work at the cutting edge of computational astrophysics. The intellectual environment at Notre Dame as well as the scientific projects are very stimulating and the remuneration is competitive.
Applicants should send a CV, list of publications and a statement of research interests to the above-mentioned address. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to Prof. Balsara. Applications may be submitted electronically. We will start considering completed applications by Feb. 1, 2013 but applications received thereafter will also be considered.
