Applications are invited for a Research Associate position within the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of British Columbia, working with Professor Jess McIver’s group on gravitational wave astrophysics research.
The successful candidate will play a leading role in the characterization of the LIGO gravitational wave detectors, software infrastructure support, and data analysis efforts within the LIGO Scientific Collaboration. The ideal candidate would have strong experience and interest in gravitational wave detector characterization methods, gravitational wave data analysis, software development, and large-scale interferometer instrumentation, as well as a proven ability to lead projects within a large collaboration, and experience mentoring students and postdoctoral scholars. The position will be based at UBC, with travel to the LIGO sites as needed.
