Description:    

The newly established Texas Center for Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics (TCCAP) at The University of Texas at Austin invites applications for its first TCCAP Postdoctoral Fellowships, to start September 2023. The initial appointments are for two years, extendable to a third year, subject to availability of funding and satisfactory performance.

We anticipate 2 to 3 Fellowships in the area of theoretical cosmology, astrophysics, or astroparticle physics (e.g. dark matter, CMB, structure formation, galaxy formation, cosmic dawn, and the 21-cm background). One Fellow will be hired to work in Prof. Kimberly Boddy's group, and another will be hired to work in Prof. Julian Muñoz's group. There may be available funding for a separate third Fellowship. Contact Kimberly Boddy and Julian Muñoz (kboddy@physics.utexas.edu, julianmunoz@austin.utexas.edu) for questions about these positions.

All TCCAP Fellows will benefit from interaction with TCCAP faculty (Kimberly Boddy, Mike Boylan-Kolchin, Volker Bromm, Katherine Freese, Nicholas Galitzki, Julian Muñoz, and Paul Shapiro) and join the excitement of a broad community of active researchers in cosmology and related physics and astrophysics, with additional members of the Physics and Astronomy Departments, including the Weinberg Theory Group, the Center for Gravitational Physics, and McDonald Observatory. Fellows will also have access to the world-class supercomputing facilities of the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC).

Applications, submitted through academicjobsonline.org, should include a cover letter, CV, list of publications, a statement of research accomplishments and current interests (up to 3 pages), and three letters of recommendation. The completion of a PhD is required prior to the start of the appointment. Review of applications will begin on December 1, 2022.
