A Post-doctoral Associate position is available to work on a project on the protoplanetary disk and planet formation research led by Dr. Jaehan Bae in the Department of Astronomy. The anticipated start date is September 1, 2024, but can be negotiated.
We have a position available in our group to work on the development of a machine-learning tool to search for young, forming exoplanets embedded in protoplanetary disks, which will be applied to archival and newly obtained ALMA data. We are looking for individuals familiar with (or eager to learn) hydrodynamic simulations, radiative transfer calculations, machine learning, and/or ALMA observations.
The applicant must have a Ph.D. in Astronomy, Astrophysics, Physics, or Computer Science by the date of appointment. This position will be initially awarded for one year, and, contingent upon strong performance and conduct and availability of funds, may be renewed for up to three years.
A complete application includes
(1) a cover letter summarizing the applicant's qualifications, interests, and suitability for the position;
(2) a complete curriculum vitae including a list of publication;
(3) a research statement (limited to 5 pages including figures, tables, and references); and
(4) a list of three references.
Applications will be reviewed beginning January 16, 2024, and the position will remain open until filled. Only complete applications will be reviewed at this time. Applications received after this date may be considered at the discretion of the committee and/or hiring authority. For additional information, you may address your specific questions to Dr. Jaehan Bae ([email protected]).
