The Georgia Tech Center for Relativistic Astrophysics (CRA) invites applications for a postdoctoral scholar position in the area of gravitational wave astrophysics including numerical relativity. The appointment will initially be for one year, renewable for up to three years subject to availability of funds and satisfactory progress. The expected starting date is September 2011. The research would focus on compact object binaries, accretion physics, electromagnetic counterparts and data analysis.
The CRA is devoted to interdisciplinary research and education linking high-energy , particle gravitational wave astrophysics. Center faculty working on these areas include David Ballantyne, Pablo Laguna (director), Deirdre Shoemaker and Ignacio Taboada. For more information visit <http://www.cra.gatech.edu/>.
Applicants should email to cra[at]physics.gatech.edu the following documents in PDF format: 1) cover letter with names of three references, 2) curriculum vitae including full list of publications, and 3) a brief description of research interests (maximum 2 pages). In addition, applicants should arrange to have three letters of reference e-mailed separately to cra[at]physics.gatech.edu. Review of applications will begin November 30, 2010.
