INSTITUTE FOR ADVANCED STUDY

School of Natural Sciences

Princeton, NJ

The School of Natural Sciences at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey, will have several openings for members in theoretical and computational astrophysics, observational astronomy, and cosmology for the academic year 2020-2021. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.

Postdoctoral member appointments range from three to five years. Long-term members have five-year appointments with a salary that is above postdoctoral level. In addition to exceptional qualifications for pursuing his or her individual research, the successful candidate for a long-term membership should be interested in mentoring, and possibly collaborating with, other post-doctoral members. Long-term members in astrophysics are designated as Bahcall fellows. All applicants for postdoctoral membership will also be considered for long-term membership and vice versa.

Postdoctoral members have complete freedom to conduct their own research, but frequently collaborate with each other, with faculty members at the Institute and at Princeton University, and with researchers at other institutions.

We will also have openings for Junior Visiting Professors. Applicants for these openings should hold a faculty or equivalent position and normally should be within ten years of receiving their Ph.D. Support will be provided to spend a period between one term and one year at the Institute while the faculty is on sabbatical or other leave from their home institution. Junior Visiting Professors are expected to conduct their own research and to help make the research environment at the IAS stimulating to the other members of the School.

For information about the Institute, current research activities, and previous postdoctoral fellows see our web site: http://www.sns.ias.edu/astrophysics 

A small number of senior scientists can usually be accommodated on sabbatical leave.

All applicants must apply through AcademicJobsOnline. Three letters of recommendation are required for postdoctoral and long-term membership applicants and should be submitted directly through the AJO website. Applications must be received by November 15. For more information, write to michelle@ias.edu or Michelle Sage, School Administrative Officer, School of Natural Sciences, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, New Jersey, 08540.
