The Department of Physics at Carnegie Mellon University invites applications for McWilliams Postdoctoral Fellowships in Cosmology. McWilliams Fellows are expected to carry out their own program of original research, independently or in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon faculty, postdoctoral fellows and students.

Endowed McWilliams Postdoctoral Fellowships are part of the McWilliams Center for Cosmology at Carnegie Mellon (website The growth of the Center since it began in 2008 involves faculty hires, multiple McWilliams Postdoctoral Fellows, and the continuing enhancement of large parallel computing facilities. The McWilliams Center synergizes research of the Carnegie Mellon Departments of Physics, Computer Science and Statistics, and benefits as well from the nearby Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center and the University of Pittsburgh Physics and Astronomy Department. Carnegie Mellon is an institutional member of SDSS-III, SDSS-IV, and the LSST, and faculty participate in multiple other collaborations including ACT, Euclid, HSC, and the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration.

Appointments are for 2 years, with renewal for a third year likely, contingent upon satisfactory progress. The stipend for 2014-2015 will be approximately $61,000 with an annual research budget of $15,000. Standard university benefits such as health insurance are included.
