Weekly visits between the scientific communities at Rutgers and CCA will be highly encouraged.

The postdoc will have opportunities to participate in observational work, help mentor graduate students, attend journal clubs/coffee meetings/colloquia at CCA and Rutgers. Funds for conference travel and professional development will be provided. The postdoc will have access to substantial computing resources at the CCA and at Rutgers.
