Tenure-Track Position in Gravitational Astrophysics, Canberra, Australia

(open to female identifying candidates only)

The Australian National University in Canberra, Australia, has recently established a new Centre for Gravitational Astrophysics (CGA), jointly supported by the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics and the Research School of Physics.

The Centre encompasses all aspects of gravitational wave physics and astrophysics, including instrumentation, theory and data analysis, source follow-up and multi-messenger astronomy. It will bring together existing ANU researchers in these areas under one umbrella and expand the capability by making up to seven new tenure-track academic appointments across these research programs over the next year. The inaugural CGA Director is Professor David McClelland.
We are seeking to appoint an outstanding early or mid-career academic with a strong research record in gravitational wave astrophysics (theory and data analysis, source follow-up, multi-messenger astronomy). This will be a tenure-track position attracting a significant start-up package. It will be a key foundation position in the CGA. The appointee will assist with recruiting additional appointments into the CGA, helping to shape its future.

We are now seeking Expressions of Interest (EoI) in this position. An EoI will comprise a 1-page statement of achievement and proposed program of research at ANU, along with a 2-page CV. EoIs will be accepted any time up until January 12, 2020. Please email your EOI to the CGA administrator, Dr Sareh Rajabi, sareh.rajabi[AT]anu.edu.au, and expect confirmation of receipt.

For further information, please contact Professor Susan Scott (susan.scott[AT]anu.edu.au) or Professor David McClelland (david.mcclelland[AT]anu.edu.au) at RSPhys and/or Associate Professor Christian Wolf (christian.wolf[AT]anu.edu.au) at RSAA.
