The Center for Gravitational Physics (CGP) at the University of Texas at Austin invites applicants for the Center for Gravitational Physics Postdoctoral Fellowship. This is a full-time postdoctoral position starting in September 2022. Fellows will work with Professors Deirdre Shoemaker and Aaron Zimmerman on projects relating to gravitational wave data analysis, numerical simulations of compact binaries, testing relativity, and/or perturbed black holes with an emphasis on current or future gravitational wave detection. The initial appointment is for two years, with the possibility of extension to a third year subject to available funding and research performance. Further information can be found in the AJO posting at the URL provided below.
Applicants must submit a cover letter (no more than 1 page), CV, list of publications, a short statement of research interests (no more than 3 pages in length) and arrange to have three letters of reference uploaded to the AJO posting. Applications are due December 17, 2021. Membership in the LIGO Scientific or Virgo Collaborations, LISA Consortium and/or previous experience with numerical relativity will be seen as beneficial for applicants.
