We invite applications for two postdoctoral research appointments that are related to pulsars, neutron stars and the high energy radiation. The projects will be supported by the School of Physics and Technology, Wuhan University and Faculty of Physics, Hong Kong University. The successful applicant will work together with Prof Wei Wang at Wuhan University and Prof. K.S. Cheng at Hong Kong University to analyzed X-ray and gamma-ray observational data to search for high energy emission from hard X-ray and MeV gamma-ray pulsars and study the multi-wavelength properties. This project is also the core program of the Chinese Hard X-ray Modulation Telescope (HXMT) which was launched in the summer of 2017. The appointment will be for two years, renewable for one more year subject to a performance evaluation.
Ph.D. in astronomy, physics, or related fields, completed or expected by the effective date, and a demonstrated record of research excellence. The people will be considered a priority if the candidates have some experience in data analysis in X-ray telescopes like Chandra or XMM-Newton, or gamma-ray telescope like Fermi/LAT. The fellowship is open to highly qualified researchers of all nationalities who received their PhD no more than three years prior to the deadlines of the corresponding applications.
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a brief summary of research interests, and arrange for two letters of recommendation to be sent directly via email. The application materials should be sent to Prof Wei Wang, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
