The Johns Hopkins University Department of Physics and Astronomy invites applications for a postdoctoral position in time-variability Galactic astronomy, to work with Prof. Nadia Zakamska, taking advantage of recent and emerging data from time-domain surveys: WISE, Gaia, ZTF, TESS, and others. Possible research directions include, but are not limited to: variability of young stellar objects and planet formation; main-sequence and evolved stellar binaries; stellar variability probes of Galactic structure and Galactic evolution.
The Center for Astrophysical Sciences at Johns Hopkins University hosts a dynamic group of postdoctoral fellows who are expected to actively involve themselves in the life of the department. JHU researchers closely interact with scientists at the adjacent Space Telescope Science Institute. JHU is also involved in SDSS IV, SDSS V, Pan-STARRS, the Subaru PFS Survey, WFIRST, Euclid, and LSST.
Applications should be submitted at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/14789 and consist of a CV, publication list, statement of past research (3 pages) and research plans (3 pages). Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of reference submitted through https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/14789 by December 1, 2019. Applicants should have a Ph.D. before the anticipated start date (September 1, 2020).
JHU is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer and welcomes applications from women and members of underrepresented groups.
