Job Announcement Text: 

The Leonard E. Parker Center for Gravitation, Cosmology, and Astrophysics (CGCA) at the University of Wisconsin--Milwaukee (UWM) invites applications for several postdoctoral research positions. The initial appointments are for one year, with renewal for a second (and, in most cases, a third) year contingent on continued funding and satisfactory performance.

The CGCA at UWM has active research efforts in gravity, cosmology, astronomy, and astrophysics. The core group is comprised of 8 faculty (Anchordoqui, Brady, Chang, Creighton, Erb, Kaplan, Siemens and Wiseman), 3 scientists, 3 technical staff, 15 postdocs, and 10 graduate students. Allen and Papa, now at the Albert Einstein Institute (AEI), maintain partial adjunct appointments at UWM and emeritus faculty Friedman and Parker participate broadly in the academic life of the Center. Our web site has more information about the people and and the research at the CGCA.

We are recruiting postdoctoral research associates across gravity, cosmology, astronomy and astrophysics to enhance the existing team and to strengthen our efforts in multi-messenger observation/theory. Applicants with a background in gravitational‐wave physics, astronomy/astrophysics, theoretical and/or numerical relativity, cosmology, or high energy physics (theory and experiment) are welcome to apply.

Applicants whose work overlaps any of the research interests of the group should send a C.V., publication list, and a brief statement of their research interests by email to, or by ordinary mail to the address above

Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent by e-mail or to the above address. The deadline for applications will be January 14th, 2014 but early applications are encouraged.
