Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in theoretical astrophysics at the Center for Astrophysical Sciences of the Johns Hopkins University (JHU). Working under the supervision of Professor Julian Krolik, the successful candidate will join a group of researchers at JHU, NASA/Goddard, Rochester Institute of Technology, West Virginia University, and a number of other universities around the world who are working together to understand how neutron star mergers (and neutron star—black hole mergers) lead to gravitational wave and photon signals. Although this project will be the postdoc’s principal focus, there will be opportunities both to participate in other projects relating to black hole astrophysics and to perform independent research.
The starting date for this position is flexible, but could be as early as spring or as late as fall, 2020. Officially the appointment must be renewed annually, but extension to three years is expected. Benefits include health insurance.
The JHU Center for Astrophysical Sciences and the adjacent Space Telescope Science Institute form a large and lively astrophysical community. In this environment, the postdoc will be immersed in first-rate work on everything from cosmology to extra-solar planets.
Applicants should upload a letter of application, CV, list of publications, and a statement of research interests to AcademicJobsOnline (AJO), https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/15174. Three letters of recommendation should also be submitted through AJO.
The deadline for receipt of application materials is December 15, 2019.
