Job Announcement Text: 

The University of Michigan Department of Astronomy invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher to work with Prof. Jon Miller on observational accretion-powered astrophysics.  Topics include fundamental aspects of black holes and neutron stars, disk accretion, outflows, AGN fueling and geometry, and tidal disruption events.  A background in one or more of these areas, and experience in X-ray and/or space-based astrophysics, will be especially helpful.  A successful applicant will build and lead programs in one or more of these areas using publicly available facilities, and resources at the University of Michigan (including MDM, Magellan, Swift, and NOEMA).

The position is nominally for one year, renewable for up to three years, depending upon performance and resources.  The nominal start date for the position is September 1, 2018, though an earlier start is possible. 

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in astronomy or physics by the date of the appointment.  Applicants should send a cover letter, CV, list of publications, a statement of interests and qualifications, and arrange to send three letters of recommendation.  Materials should be sent via email to jonmm@umich.edu.  Applications that are complete by December 15, 2017, will receive full consideration. 

The University of Michigan is an Equal Opportunity / Affirmative Action Employer.  Women and members of minority groups are especially welcome to apply.
