The Department of Physics at the University of Haifa (UoH) invites applications for a postdoctoral position in black hole astrophysics. Applications are welcome from all fields of astrophysics. Prior experience with data analysis of time-series, X-ray spectroscopy and/or polarimetry, AGN physics, radiative transfer, interferometric imaging, and black hole physics, are of particular relevance for this call.
The successful candidate will be offered a competitive scholarship, relocation expenses, computer facilities, and travel funds, and will be encouraged to pursue independent research. She or he will also be expected to work with Dr. Shahar Hadar and Prof. Doron Chelouche on the development and implementation of techniques for analyzing black hole observational data, and to interact with other postdoctoral members of the astrophysics group. There is a strong collaboration between research groups at different Israeli institutions, and group members often collaborate with neighboring groups at Tel-Aviv University and the Technion. Relevant infrastructure includes high-performance computing facilities and an observatory (~1m telescope). For inquiries about the position please contact Dr. Shahar Hadar ([email protected]) or Prof. Doron Chelouche ([email protected]).
Applicants are asked to email a description of research achievements and future plans, a curriculum vitae with a list of publications, and arrange for three letters of reference to be emailed to Dr. Shahar Hadar ([email protected]) by Dec. 15th 2021. Consideration of applications will commence thereafter and will continue until the position is filled. The starting date can be immediate (please indicate availability to assume the position in your application form). Applicants should have a PhD by the anticipated starting date.
