The Astronomy Department at The University of Texas at Austin invites applications for a postdoctoral position to work with Prof. Mike Boylan-Kolchin (http://www.as.utexas.edu/~mbk/) and his research group. Applicants with expertise in topics related to theoretical or numerical studies of dark matter, galaxy formation physics, globular cluster formation and evolution, or near-field cosmology are especially well-suited to the position; researchers with an observational background in these fields and interest in interacting closely with theorists are also encouraged to apply.
UT Austin has a large and vibrant astronomy department, and the successful applicant will have access to high-performance computing at the Texas Advanced Computing Center as well as the telescopes operated by the UT Astronomy Department and McDonald Observatory. The Astronomy Department is committed to a culture of inclusivity, and the successful applicant will share this vision. The University of Texas at Austin is an EEO/AA employer, and we strongly encourage women and members of underrepresented groups to apply.
The successful applicant must have received a PhD in Astronomy, Physics, or a related field by the starting date of the appointment, nominally September 1, 2021 (earlier starting dates are also possible). The appointment will be for a period of three years, contingent on performance. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
To apply, please submit a single pdf file containing a cover letter, CV, publication list, research statement, and contact information for three references to firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions about the position can be sent to the same email address. Applications received by December 15, 2020 will receive full consideration; later applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
