Research Associate/Fellow position available in Gravitational Wave Astronomy at UWA, Perth, Australia
The University of Western Australia (UWA) gravitational wave astronomy group (http://www.physics.uwa.edu.au/research/gravitational-wave-astronomy) invites applications for a postdoctoral Research Associate (level A) or Research Fellow (level B) position in the broad areas of gravitational wave signal processing, astrophysics, and multi-messenger astronomy for ground-based interferometric gravitational-wave detectors and/or pulsar timing array. From 2017, the group will be part of the newly funded ARC Center of Excellence for Gravitational wave Discoveries (http://www.arc.gov.au/arc-centres-excellence) (OzGrav).
The initial appointment will be for one year, renewable up to three years depending funding situation and performance. The position is available immediately.
We are looking for highly motivated applicants with interest in the area of gravitational wave search pipeline development, its applications to multi-messenger astronomy, as well as in astrophysics of gravitational wave sources. Background with astrophysics and/or supercomputing is a plus. The postdoc or scientist will have opportunities to develop their own research programs and obtain future funding support through competitive funding programs in Australia.
Informal enquiries of the position can be made to Prof. Linqing Wen by email at linqing.wen AT uwa.edu.au. A complete application should include a CV including a list of publications, a statement of research interests, and names and contact information of at least three references.
