Multiple Project Staff Scientist (postdoctoral) openings at IUCAA,Pune, India
Applications are invited from researchers with outstanding track record in (a) gravitational wave data analysis or detector characterization, (b) numerical relativity, (c) relativistic astrophysics, or a closely related research area, for multiple (postdoctoral) Project Scientist positions to begin this summer or fall.
Each position is for three years, renewable annually, based on performance, and comes with a salary package that is quite a bit more attractive than what is typically offered by Indian institutions.
Interested applicants must have a PhD degree and should email their curriculum vitae, publication list, and statement of research interests (PDFs preferred) to sukanta[at]iucaa[dot]in by May 15, 2016. They should also ask three referees to send recommendation letters directly to the same email address by the aforementioned deadline.
Facilities required for research are provided institutionally. They include high performance computing clusters, high speed internet connections, mirror sites of important databases, a well equipped instrumentation laboratory, and a library with exhaustive collection of books and periodicals.
IUCAA is a lead institution in the recently approved LIGO-India project. Financial support for attending international and national meetings and collaborative visits is available. Information on gravitational-wave research being pursued in IUCAA can be found at: http://www.gw.iucaa.in/ .
