Job Announcement Text: 

The Rutgers University Department of Physics and Astronomy invites applications for a postdoctoral research position starting on, or after, September 1, 2019. The successful applicant will work under the guidance of Professor Kristen McQuinn and contribute to a research program on near-field cosmology and the star formation histories and chemical evolution of nearby galaxies.
