CIERA Postdoctoral Fellowships, Northwestern University

    Northwestern University - CIERA
    2145 Sheridan Road,
    Evanston, IL 60208-3112, USA

    Postal Submissions: Attention: Janet Howe at address above
    Online Submissions (Preferred): https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/4496
    Questions: janet.howe@northwestern.edu
    Application Deadline: 12/1/2014

The Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics (CIERA) at Northwestern University invites applications for Center Postdoctoral Fellowships.

CIERA Fellows can pursue an independent research program in any area of astrophysics (theoretical or observational). This year we are particularly interested in the broad areas of large-scale sky surveys science, gravitational-wave data analysis, galaxy formation and evolution, and planetary dynamics, but candidates in all areas of astrophysics are encouraged to apply. When appropriate, interdisciplinary connections are welcome (e.g., to computer science, applied math, planetary sciences, astrobiology, chemistry, mechanical engineering, or electrical engineering). In addition to astrophysicists, we encourage applications from recent Ph.D. graduates in the above fields who are interested in switching to astrophysics and/or applying their knowledge from another field to astrophysical problems.

Fellowship appointments will be for a three-year term starting in September 2015. The annual stipend is $67,000 and the positions come with a competitive benefits package and a research budget of $15,000 per year.

Please submit applications electronically at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/4496. Applications should include a CV (including a list of publications with the most important 1 to 3 publications indicated with an asterisk), a three-page statement of research accomplishments and plans, and arrange for at least three letters of recommendation to be uploaded to Academic Jobs Online (preferred) or sent to the above address. Applications received by December 1st, 2014 will receive full consideration. Later applications will be considered until all positions are filled.

Please state that you are applying for the CIERA Postdoctoral Fellowship in your cover letter. If you wish to apply for other Northwestern astronomy-related postdoctoral positions simultaneously, submit a single copy of your application materials and specify all positions on the online application form as well as in your cover letter. Applicants must complete their Ph.D. requirements prior to appointment.

Applications from women and minority candidates are especially encouraged.

Lindheimer Postdoctoral Fellowship at Northwestern University

    Northwestern University - CIERA
    2145 Sheridan Road,
    Evanston, IL 60208-3112, USA

    Postal Submissions: Attention: Janet Howe at address above
    Online Submissions (Preferred): https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/4495
    Questions: janet.howe@northwestern.edu
    Application Deadline: 12/1/2014

The Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics (CIERA) at Northwestern University invites applications for the Lindheimer Postdoctoral Fellowship.

The Lindheimer Fellowship supports an outstanding individual to pursue original research in any area of astrophysics, working independently and/or in collaboration with Northwestern faculty and postdocs. Active research at Northwestern includes theoretical work on the formation and evolution of planets, stars, black holes and galaxies, as well as stellar and planetary dynamics, gravitational-wave modeling and data analysis methods, compact objects, and planetary atmospheres. Observational research includes multi-wavelength studies of the Galactic Center and active galactic nuclei, instrument development to observe & constrain interstellar magnetic fields, ultra-violet/optical studies of interstellar absorption lines, investigations of gravitational lensing in clusters, and the development of X-ray optics and ultra-violet detectors.

This year we are particularly interested in the broad area of galaxy formation and evolution (including star formation, stellar feedback, black hole-galaxy co-evolution, and the connection with the intergalactic medium), but candidates in all areas of astrophysics are encouraged to apply.

The appointment will be for a three-year term starting in September 2015. The annual stipend is $67,000 and the position comes with a competitive benefits package and a research budget of $15,000 per year.

Please submit applications electronically at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/4495. Applications should include a CV (including a list of publications with the most important 1 to 3 publications indicated with an asterisk), a three-page statement of research accomplishments and plans, and arrange for at least three letters of recommendation to be uploaded to Academic Jobs Online (preferred) or sent to the above address.

Postdoctoral Positions in Astronomy and Astrophysics, Northwestern University

    Northwestern University - CIERA
    2145 Sheridan Road,
    Evanston, IL 60208-3112, USA

    Postal Submissions: Attention: Janet Howe at address above
    Online Submissions (Preferred): https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/4497
    Questions: janet.howe@northwestern.edu
    Application Deadline: 12/1/2014

Northwestern University expects to offer several postdoctoral positions in astronomy and astrophysics starting in Fall 2015.

These positions will be part of the Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics (CIERA) at Northwestern, and successful applicants will benefit from interaction with a broad interdisciplinary group of researchers. We are interested in candidates with experience in theoretical/computational astrophysics. Of particular interest this year are candidates who will work with Prof. Claude-André Faucher-Giguère on galaxy formation and evolution (including star formation, stellar feedback, black hole-galaxy co-evolution, and the connection with the intergalactic medium), with Prof. Vicky Kalogera on gravitational wave astrophysics and data analysis, with Prof. Yoram Lithwick on the theory of planets, disks, and/or hydro/MHD, or with Prof. Fred Rasio on the modeling of exoplanets and/or dense star clusters.

Please submit applications electronically at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/4497. Applications should include a CV (including a list of publications with the most important 1 to 3 publications indicated with an asterisk), a three-page statement of research accomplishments and plans, and arrange for at least three letters of recommendation to be uploaded to Academic Jobs Online (preferred) or sent to the above address. Applications received by December 1st, 2014 will receive full consideration. Later applications will be considered until all positions are filled.

Please clearly state which postdoctoral positions you are applying for in your cover letter. If you wish to apply for other Northwestern astronomy-related postdoctoral positions simultaneously, submit a single copy of your application materials and specify all positions on the online application form as well as in your cover letter. Applicants must complete their Ph.D. requirements prior to appointment.
