Postdoctoral positions in astronomy, astrophysics and gravitation at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, WI, USA

The Leonard E. Parker Center for Gravitation, Cosmology, and Astrophysics (CGCA) at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM) invites applications for several postdoctoral research positions. The initial appointments are for one year, with renewal for a second (and, in most cases, a third) year contingent on continued funding and satisfactory performance.

The CGCA at UWM has active research efforts in gravity, cosmology, astronomy, and astrophysics. The CGCA also hosts the NANOGrav Physics Frontiers Center. The core group is comprised of 7 faculty (Brady, Chang, Creighton, Erb, Kaplan, Siemens and Wiseman), 8 scientists, 9 postdocs, and 14 graduate students. Profs. Allen and Papa (now at the Albert Einstein Institute, AEI) maintain partial adjunct appointments at UWM, and emeritus faculty Friedman and Parker participate broadly in the academic life of the Center.

We are recruiting postdoctoral research associates across gravity, cosmology, astronomy and astrophysics to enhance the existing team and to strengthen our efforts in multi-messenger observations/theory. Applicants with backgrounds in gravitational-wave physics, astronomy/astrophysics, theoretical and/or numerical relativity, or cosmology are encouraged to apply. The positions include competitive salary and excellent fringe benefits.

Applicants should send a C.V., publication list, and a brief statement of their research interests by email to cgca-postdoc-applications[AR]

Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent by e-mail to the above address. Review of applications will begin on February 1st, 2017. Questions should also be sent to the above address.
