Job Announcement Text: 

The University of Wisconsin – Madison (UW) is searching for postdoctoral scholars to work on multi-messenger and particle astrophysics, specifically focusing on neutrino astronomy with IceCube and gamma-ray astronomy with the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA) and the High-Altitude Water Cherenkov Gamma-ray Observatory (HAWC). We anticipate hiring three positions:

  1. A postdoc focused on high-energy neutrino data analysis for IceCube
  2. A postdoc focused on gamma-ray data analysis and instrumentation for CTA
  3. A postdoc focused on gamma-ray data analysis for HAWC

Successful applicants will work within UW’s Wisconsin IceCube Particle Astrophysics Center (WIPAC).
