Applications are invited for a theoretical astrophysics postdoctoral research associate position at Yale University, New Haven, CT. This position is supported under the auspices of an NSF-funded Theoretical and Computational Astrophysics Network (TCAN) spanning Yale University (PI Priya Natarajan); University of Maryland (PI Chris Reynolds) and The Georgia Institute of Technology (PI Pablo Laguna). The focus area of this network is the multi-scale physics of massive black hole formation, fueling and feedback, including the dynamics and thermodynamics of the intra-cluster medium. The successful candidate will be expected to conduct theoretical and computational research in this focus area, collaborating closely both with scientists at the other two nodes in the network.
For this Yale University position, candidates with a strong background in cosmology, structure formation, theoretical and computational studies of black hole formation and fueling in the early universe are encouraged to apply. The successful candidate must have a Ph.D. in Physics, Astronomy or a related field by the start date of the position (which must be no later that Sept-2014). The initial appointment will be for two years, renewable for a third year subject to performance and funding.
To apply, please send a CV, bibliography, and statement of research interests/accomplishments (in the form of a single PDF file) to email@example.com by 1st December 2013. Please also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to the same email address by 1st December 2013. Yale is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer, and we particularly encourage applications from women and members of minority groups.
