Deadline:  2022-11-30

Location:  USA

The NSF Physics Frontiers Center Network for Neutrinos, Nuclear Astrophysics, and Symmetries (N3AS) would like to make a postdoctoral appointment in the general area of gravitational-wave data analysis and connections to the modeling of binary neutron star mergers and core collapse supernovae.

N3AS is a multi-institutional collaboration linking thirteen partners: UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, U. Kentucky, Los Alamos National Laboratory, U. Minnesota, U. of New Hampshire, North Carolina State U., Northwestern U., Notre Dame U., Ohio U., Pennsylvania State U., U. Washington, and U. Wisconsin. N3AS research focuses on theoretical issues in multi-messenger astrophysics, including neutrino properties and their astrophysical consequences, dense matter, gravitational waves and their interpretation, neutron stars and their mergers, supernovae, nucleosynthesis, and dark matter. N3AS provides a unique multi-disciplinary environment for postdoctoral Fellows to address fundamental questions in astrophysics, cosmology, nuclear physics, and particle physics.

The appointment would be made through UC Berkeley, but the Fellow would be hosted by one or more of New Hampshire, Penn State, or Stony Brook, centers of N3AS modeling. The precise arrangement would be negotiated with the successful candidate when the appointment is made.

N3AS Fellows receive a salary of $74K, a generous travel allowance to enable travel to other N3AS institutions and collaboration with other N3AS members, and a relocation allowance. More details on N3AS can be found at https://n3as.berkeley.edu.

Candidates should have a recent Ph.D. (on or after September 2020) in theoretical physics, astrophysics, or a closely related area, and the ability to work productively within a diverse and collaborative research environment, producing and publishing original research, and presenting that research effectively in seminars and scientific meetings.

Requested application materials: Please submit a CV, a publication list, a statement of research interest, and three letters of reference. Materials should be submitted online at AJO. Interested candidates are requested to submit their applications before November 30, 2022 to ensure full consideration. As early reviews of applications will begin November 16, any candidate who can apply by this earlier date is encouraged to do so.

If additional information is needed, please contact one of the members of the selection committee, Francois Foucart, Jim Lattimer, David Radice, or B. S. Sathyaprakash. Email addresses are below.

Fellow benefits packages will be continuous over the three-year appointments, provided through UC Berkeley. UC Berkeley is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, age, or protected veteran status.
