Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the Center for Astrophysical Sciences of the Johns Hopkins University (JHU). Working under the supervision of Professor David Neufeld, the successful candidate will join a group of researchers at JHU, University of Maryland, Caltech, University of Cologne, the Max-Planck Institute for Radio astronomy, University of Paris and other institutions who are collaborating on the SOFIA Legacy Program “HyGAL: Characterizing the Galactic ISM with Hydrides.”  This 82-hour program will study the diffuse interstellar medium through far-IR/submillimeter absorption line spectroscopy and will start acquiring data in July 2020.  Although this project will be the postdoc’s principal focus, there will be opportunities both to participate in other projects relating to the interstellar medium and to perform independent research.

The starting date for this position is flexible but could be as early as May 2020 or as late as February 2021.  Officially the appointment must be renewed annually, but the expected duration is two years, with a possible extension to three years subject to satisfactory performance and the continued availability of funding.   

The JHU Center for Astrophysical Sciences and the adjacent Space Telescope Science Institute form a large and lively astrophysical community. In this environment, the postdoc will be immersed in first-rate work on everything from cosmology to exoplanets.

Applicants should upload a letter of application, CV, list of publications, and a statement of research interests to AcademicJobsOnline (AJO).

Three letters of recommendation should also be submitted through AJO.

Application materials received by February 2nd, 2020, will receive full consideration.

The Johns Hopkins University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer committed to recruiting, supporting, and fostering a diverse community.
