Job Announcement Text: 

The Department of Physics and Astronomy (https://www.physics.unlv.edu/) at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas is welcoming the application for a postdoctoral scholar to work with Dr. Carl-Johan Haster's group starting in July 2023, with some flexibility on the starting date.

The postdoctoral researcher will primarily work with Haster's group with a research program focusing on multi-messenger astrophysics based on gravitational-wave observations, the development and implementation of data analysis techniques used for inferring the properties of astrophysical compact objects from both single-event and population-wide observations and to build on our understanding of the Neutron Star Equation of State and the capabilities of General Relativity to continue as the preferred theory of Gravitation.

The successful candidate will also be encouraged to collaborate with other members of the Nevada Center for Astrophysics (https://ncfa.physics.unlv.edu/), to further the Center's impact across multi-messenger astrophysics.
