Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral position at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, AB, Canada, via the CITA National Fellowship. A subset of applicants will be nominated to the fellowship by Prof. Rodrigo Fernandez, and upon obtaining the fellowship the successful candidate will join his research group and work on topics involving astrophysical transients and compact objects (supernovae, compact object mergers, etc.).
Candidates should have a PhD in Astronomy, Physics, or a related field, and experience in numerical (magneto)-hydrodynamics, nuclear astrophysics, and/or numerical relativity. The position is expected to start in September 2018. Successful candidates will have part of their time available to develop their own independent research program.
To apply, please send a Research Statement, CV, and List of Publications to Prof. Fernandez (rafernan AT ualberta DOT ca) and arrange to have 2-3 confidential reference letters sent to that e-mail address by Nov 1, 2017 (please include “CITA NF” in the subject line). The deadline for submitting nominations to CITA is Nov 15, so timely submissions increase the chance of a more thorough review of application materials and nomination. Please direct any inquiries to the same e-mail address.
