Postdoctoral Fellowship in Multi-messenger Astrophysics at the Rochester Institute of Technology, New York
The recent observations of a binary neutron star merger using both gravitational wave interferometers as well as electromagnetic telescopes across the full spectrum have initiated the age of multi-messenger astronomy and astrophysics.
As part of an NSF collaborative projects, the RIT's Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation (CCRG) is currently seeking to fill a postdoctoral research position with highly qualified individuals interested pursuing research in the multimessenger analysis and interpretation of neutron star mergers.
We are particularly interested in applicants with expertise in hydrodynamical simulations of binary merger, relativistic outflows, and nucleosynthesis. Expertise in detailed, self-consistent simulations of electromagnetic emission is also highly desired. Successful applicants will work closely with Prof. Richard O'Shaughnessy and regularly visit collaborators at the Center for Theoretical Astrophysics (CTA) at Los Alamos National Lab (LANL). To ensure efficient and productive collaboration, successful applicants should be prepared to spend significant percentage of time at LANL during the year.
Applications should consist of a cover letter, a brief statement of research interests, a curriculum vitae including publication list, and at least three letters of recommendation. All materials should be sent electronically as soon as possible to: oshaughn[AT]main[dot]rit[dot]edu with a copy to ccrg-postdoc[AT]ccrgweb.rit.edu. For an overview of all job openings at CCRG please go to: https://ccrg.rit.edu/career.
For further information, contact oshaughn[AT]mail[dot]rit[dot]edu Review of completed applications will begin as soon as available and will continue until a suitable candidate is found.
