Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position at the Center for Relativistic Astrophysics (CRA) in the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia. The successful candidate will work in conjunction with Dr. John Wise on simulations of the first stars and galaxies and their observability with JWST and will assist with the development of the next-generation exascale code Enzo-E. They will have the opportunity to collaborate with other members of the Enzo-E team -- Michael Norman and Britton Smith (UCSD/SDSC), Brian O'Shea (MSU), and Greg Bryan (Columbia/CCA). The position is for two years; renewal for a third year is subject to performance.  Expertise in running and analyzing cosmological simulations is highly desired, and experience in parallel code development is preferred.

The CRA is a growing group of nine faculty, specializing in theoretical topics in high-energy astrophysics, planet formation, galaxy formation, numerical relativity, and particle astrophysics. Local high-performance computing facilities include a 30,000-core cluster with GPUs and Xeon Phis. The successful candidate will also have access to NASA and XSEDE resources. Travel and research funds will be available.

The appointment is expected to start on or before September 1, 2019 and requires the completion of a PhD by that date. Complete applications include a cover letter, a CV, a list of publications, and a research statement (up to 3 pages) in a single PDF document to jwise@physics.gatech.edu no later than December 15, 2018.  The email should include the names of reference letter writers. Arrange for three letters of references to be sent directly to the same address by the same deadline.

Georgia Institute of Technology is an equal education and employment opportunity institution.  A background check is required for employment.  Postdoctoral benefits can be found at: http://ohr.gatech.edu/benefits
