Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to be hosted at the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Waterloo, with a possibility of joint affiliation with Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. The position will be for two years starting Sep. 1 2013 or earlier, with a possible extension for a third year contingent upon performance and funding. We are particularly interested in candidates whose interests overlap those of Profs. Afshordi and Hudson (cosmology, galaxy formation, gravitational lensing, large scale structure, clusters of galaxies, etc.), but excellent candidates in any area of astrophysics or cosmology will be considered and are encouraged to apply. The University of Waterloo has a strong research program in astrophysics, cosmology, and gravitation and has close ties to Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics. The successful candidates will have access to the large-scale computing resources available at SHARCNET (www.sharcnet.ca), of which the University of Waterloo is a member. For further information about the Department and the astrophysics group at Waterloo, please see the web links above. Interested candidates should send a CV, publication list, statement of research interests and plans in PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org. Informal inquires can be made to Niayesh Afshordi (email@example.com) or Mike Hudson (firstname.lastname@example.org). In addition, applicants should arrange to have three letters of reference sent to the same address. All application materials must be received by March 1, 2013.
