Job Announcement Text: 

We invite applications for a Prize Postdoctoral Fellowship in Theoretical Astrophysics at the Department of Astronomy, University of Maryland, College Park. Established in 2006, this independent postdoctoral program is connected with the Maryland Astronomy Center for Theory and Computation (CTC), whose faculty maintain active research programs in planetary/solar-system dynamics, exoplanet atmospheres, galaxy formation, cosmology, and high-energy astrophysics.

While we typically encourage applications related to any of these areas, for this cycle, preference will be given to candidates with a background in numerical/theoretical cosmology or galaxy formation. You must have obtained a PhD in astronomy, physics, or a related field by the start date of the appointment in the fall of 2021. The initial appointment will be for two years, with the possibility of an extension to three years.

To apply, please compile a single pdf file with a cover letter, CV, publication list, and a 3-page statement of research interests and experience (optionally with up to more 2 pages for references and figures). This file should be sent to the email address below by December 15th 2020, including "CTC Prize Postdoc" in the subject line. Candidates must also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to the same email address by this date. We may consider applicants for other postdoctoral positions in the Astronomy Department at Maryland. For further information, please contact Prof. Benedikt Diemer at the email address listed below.
