Job Announcement Text: 

The Department of Astronomy at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor is seeking to hire a postdoctoral research fellow to work with Prof. Mateusz Ruszkowski on topics broadly related to gas dynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, and cosmic rays in the context of the physics of black hole accretion, AGN feedback, galaxies, galaxy clusters, and structure formation. Candidates with interest in these topics are particularly encouraged to apply.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in Astrophysics or equivalent field. Background in computational astrophysics and computer science is highly desirable but not required. A successful candidate will have access to the Flux cluster through Prof. Ruszkowski's multi-year allocation. The Flux machine is a large high-performance cluster hosted by Advanced Research Computing at the University of Michigan.

Salary will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. The position will initially be for one year and may be extended up to three years, depending on satisfactory performance and availability of funding.

Qualified applicants should e-mail their resume, publication list, and a statement of research interests, and arrange for three letters of reference to be e-mailed to the above address. Review of applications will begin on January 1, 2014 and continue until the position is filled.

The University of Michigan is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer. Women and members of minority groups are encouraged to apply.
