Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for Postdoctoral Research Positions in the Institute for Theory and Computation (ITC) at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. One of the primary objectives of the ITC is to integrate conceptual theory with computational modeling. We are, therefore, interested in candidates working in any field related to theoretical and/or numerical astrophysics. Successful candidates will have access to our new computing facilities and will have the opportunity to interact and work with researchers in both the Harvard College Observatory (HCO) and the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (SAO). We welcome applicants, who as a component of their research statement, discuss their experience or commitment to engaging in mentoring, outreach, teaching, fostering inclusive environments, or activities that diversify the field. Current senior members of the ITC include Harvard faculty Charles Alcock, Xingang Chen, Charlie Conroy, Selma de Mink, Daniel Eisenstein, Doug Finkbeiner, Lars Hernquist, John Johnson, John Kovac, Avi Loeb (ITC Director), James Moran, Ramesh Narayan, Karin Oberg, Dimitar Sasselov, Irwin Shapiro, and Chris Stubbs; as well as SAO scientists Rosanne Di Stefano, Matt Holman, Eric Keto, Mark Reid, and Alexey Vikhlinin. The nominal starting date is September 1, 2021, but earlier appointments are possible. The positions are for two years, renewable for a third year, contingent on performance and funding. Please submit applications electronically at www.cfa.harvard.edu/opportunities/fellowships/itc/ by 5:00pm EST, November 16, 2020. Further information about the ITC may be found at http://www.cfa.harvard.edu/itc/; please direct any questions on the application process to itcpostdoc@cfa.harvard.edu. Women and minorities are strongly encouraged to apply. AAE/EOE.
