Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the area of computational and theoretical black hole astrophysics at the Georgia Tech Center for Relativistic Astrophysics (CRA). The successful candidate will work with Dr. Tamara Bogdanovic and have opportunity to collaborate with other members of the CRA faculty.

We are particularly interested in a candidate that will work on interaction of single and binary massive black holes with their environment, electromagnetic counterparts and black hole growth. Experience in running and analyzing parallel (magneto)hydrodynamical simulations is desired. The successful candidate will have access to the local high-performance computing facilities and a dedicated computer cluster. The appointment will initially be for two years with a possible extension to a third year, subject to performance and funding. The expected starting date of the position is September 2014.

Applicants should send the cover letter with the names of three references, CV and bibliography, and statement of research interests (in the form of a single PDF file) to tamarab@gatech.edu. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to the same email address. Review of applications will begin on January 15, 2014 and will continue until the position is filled.

Georgia Tech is committed to affirmative action, equal opportunity and the diversity of its workforce.
