The position is for two years; renewal for a third year is subject to performance. Expertise in running and analyzing cosmological simulations is highly desired, and experience in parallel code development is preferred.

The CRA is a growing group of nine faculty, specializing in theoretical topics in high-energy astrophysics, planet formation, galaxy formation, numerical relativity, and particle astrophysics. Local high-performance computing facilities include a 30,000-core cluster with GPUs and Xeon Phis. The successful candidate will also have access to NASA and XSEDE resources. Travel and research funds will be available.

The research scientist position offers a competitive salary and benefits. Applicants should submit a CV with a list of publications, the name of three references willing to provide letters of recommendation, and a brief cover letter with statement of research interests (maximum two pages), via Academic Jobs Online.
