The Center for Relativistic Astrophysics (CRA) at the Georgia Institute of Technology invites applications for a postdoctoral position in Black Hole Astrophysics with an emphasis on modeling of multimessenger signatures of massive black hole binaries. The successful candidate will work with Prof. Tamara Bogdanović and her group on hydrodynamic simulations of coincident electromagnetic and gravitational wave signatures associated with massive black hole binaries headed for coalescence. The candidate will also have an opportunity to collaborate with Prof. Shane Davis (University of Virginia), Dr. Yan-Fei Jiang (Flatiron Institute) and Prof. Pablo Laguna (CRA, Georgia Tech).
Appointment terms: The initial appointment is for one year, renewable for up to two additional years contingent upon satisfactory performance, mutual agreement, and availability of funds. The desired start date is as soon as possible and no later than September 1, 2020.
Qualifications: A PhD in astronomy, physics, or a related discipline is required by the start of employment. Applicants with research interests in and / or experience in multi-messenger astrophysics, magnetohydrodynamic simulations, modeling of accretion and radiative processes, computational astrophysics and relativity are particularly encouraged to apply. Applications from women and groups traditionally underrepresented in astrophysics are strongly encouraged.
Application instructions: Applicants should submit a single PDF document including a cover letter, CV, publication list, and research statement (no longer than 3 pages) to Prof. Tamara Bogdanović (email@example.com). They should arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to the same email address. Screening of applications will begin on December 15, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.
