Postdoctoral positions in GRMHD at the Rochester Institute of Technology

Postdoctoral positions at the Rochester Institute of Technology

The Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation (CCRG) at the
Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) anticipates filling several
postdoctoral positions in the coming year. We are looking for
postdoctoral candidates interested in working in the areas of modeling
and simulation of gravitational waves sources and their electromagnetic
counterparts, including binary black holes and neutron stars, and their
astrophysical interpretation in the context of the LIGO-Virgo observations.
We are also interested in candidates working in relativistic
magneto-hydrodynamics simulations of accretion disks around
supermassive black hole mergers, and their jet dynamics.

The successful postdoctoral candidates will have the opportunity to
collaborate on a broad range of research topics in gravitational
physics. Our group is involved in several large collaborations,
including the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC), The Einstein
Toolkit Consortium (http://einsteintoolkit.org), and a Petascale
computing project with NCSA.

There are many senior researchers working in a broad range of areas of
gravitational physics and astrophysics at the CCRG. This includes
Manuela Campanelli (Director), Sukanya Chakrabarti, Joshua Faber,
Carlos Lousto, Richard O’Shaughnessy, Jason Nordhaus, Yosef Zlochower,
John Whelan, and Hans-Peter Bischof,
several postdoctoral
fellows and Ph.D. students (see http://ccrg.rit.edu/people for an
overview on who is or has been at CCRG). The group also collaborates
with many faculty, postdocs and graduate students in the larger
astrophysics group (http://www.rit.edu/cos/astrophysics/), the school
of Mathematical Sciences (http://www.rit.edu/cos/sms/) and the School
of Physics and Astronomy (http://www.rit.edu/cos/physics/).

The positions are for two or three years and renewable depending on
satisfactory performance and the availability of funds. CCRG
researchers have access to several computing cluster facilities at
national computing centers such as XSEDE and BlueWaters as well as two
dedicated 1300 and 1600-core clusters hosted at the Center.

More information about the CCRG is available at http://ccrg.rit.edu/
And about Rochester at

Applications should consist of a cover letter, a brief statement of
research interests, a curriculum vitae including publication list, and
at least three letters of recommendation. All materials should be sent
electronically as soon as possible to: ccrg-postdoc[AT]ccrgweb.rit.edu

Review of completed applications will begin as soon as available and
will continue until a suitable candidate is found. Deadline for applications
is January 31st, 2018. Starting date can be as early as September, 2018.
RIT is committed to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action.
