Job Announcement Text: 

The Department of Astronomy at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor is seeking to hire a postdoctoral research fellow to work with Prof. Mateusz Ruszkowski on topics broadly related to gas dynamics, magnetohydrodynamics, and cosmic rays in the context of the physics of black hole accretion, AGN and stellar feedback, galaxies, galaxy clusters, and structure formation.
