Postdoctoral Position in Computational Astrophysics
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in Computational Astrophysics in the Physics Department at the University of Notre Dame. The applicant should have a background in computational astrophysics with a firm grasp of scientific computing, parallel supercomputing and modern programming languages in addition to depth in an astrophysical sub-area of specialization. All areas of astrophysics are welcome, but we might have a specific interest in star formation, planet formation, accretion physics, interstellar medium, supernovae, black-holes, jets or relativistic astrophysics. Applicants should send a statement of research interest and a current CV to firstname.lastname@example.org. Three letters of recommendation should also be sent to the same email address by senior scientists who are familiar with the applicant’s scientific research. The salary is competitive and the benefits at the university are excellent. Applications received before January 1, 2017 will be fully considered, with late applications considered as and when possible.
Previous work in the group has focused on many areas of star formation, planet formation, ISM, astrophysical turbulence, accretion physics, astrophysical jets and relativistic astrophysics. We also have a strong interest in numerical methods for computational hydrodynamics and MHD, relativistic MHD and radiative transfer. The group has access to substantial computer resources at the national level and also has access to a large on-campus cluster.
