The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of New Hampshire invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate. The successful candidate will work within our numerical relativity program, in collaboration with Prof. Francois Foucart’s research group. Our numerical relativity group focuses on the study of merging black holes and neutron stars, and on the modeling of the gravitational wave, electromagnetic, and neutrino signals that they produce. The UNH numerical relativity group is a member of the Simulating Extreme Spacetime (SxS) collaboration. 

This position will focus in part on studies of neutrino physics and nuclear astrophysics in merger simulations, and/or on the development of improved numerical methods for merger simulations. The successful candidate will also be encouraged to work on research projects in the broader areas of numerical relativity and relativistic astrophysics. The proposed starting date for this position is September 1, 2020 (different starting dates are however negotiable). This is a one year appointment that can be renewed for up to two additional years contingent upon available funding and satisfactory performance.

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, summary of relevant research experience, and cover letter with their application. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to be submitted through the application website. The position will remain open until filled. Applications will be considered immediately upon arrival and should be sent no later than January 15, 2020 for full consideration. Inquiries regarding this position may be sent to Prof. Foucart (
