The Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Utah invites applications for a postdoctoral research position to collaborate with Dr Tanmoy Laskar in the field of time-domain astrophysics.
We are looking for candidates who will participate and take leadership roles in a broad and dynamic research program, focused on observations, modeling, and theoretical explorations of astrophysical transients. The program has a strong emphasis on radio follow-up of relativistic transients (gamma-ray bursts, tidal disruption events, gravitational wave counterparts). You will have access to a broad suite of observational facilities for this science as well as significant opportunity for independent related research. Funds are also available for travel and participation at national and international conferences. The PI values responsive and responsible mentoring and strives to a diverse team and a welcoming work environment.
For full consideration, all materials (excluding letters of recommendation) should be received by Dec 8, 2022. Letters of recommendation will only be requested for short-listed candidates. For any inquiries about this position, please contact Dr. Tanmoy Laskar at [email protected] .
To apply, please see https://scholar.harvard.edu/laskar/research-group for the further details, required application materials, and submission instructions.
Additional postdoctoral research positions at the University of Utah are also open, to collaborate with Dr. Yao-Yuan Mao on extragalactic astronomy and galaxy surveys, and with Dr. Gail Zasowski on Milky Way and galactic astronomy. Furthermore, there is also a concurrent search for multiple faculty positions in multi-messenger astrophysics. You can find the application instructions to these positions in separate job advertisements.
