The Astrophysics Theory Group at JILA/University of Colorado Boulder invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate starting on, or before, September 1, 2018. We especially welcome applications from candidates interested in galactic nuclei dynamics, Solar System and exoplanet dynamics, tidal disruption events, and gravitational waves astrophysics. 

Our theory group is part of the Astrophysical & Planetary Sciences (APS) department at CU Boulder. APS is affiliated with several research centers and institutes (LASP, CASA, JILA) and offers a diverse set of resources for teaching and research, including access to observational, instrumental, and theoretical facilities. The APS department recognizes that the effectiveness and creativity of a group is strengthened by contributions from diverse perspectives. We therefore welcome candidates who have demonstrated leadership toward building an equitable and diverse scholarly environment. 

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in physics or astronomy or an equivalent degree by the date of employment. Initial appointment will be for two years, with a possible extension up to three years, depending on performance and funding.
Qualified applicants should submit a single pdf containing:

Applicants should also arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent directly to Dr. Ann-Marie Madigan (electronic submission strongly preferred).
