Position Description:    

*** this position has been closed, and no new applications will be accepted. ***

The Physics and Astronomy Department at Johns Hopkins University expects to make several postdoc appointments beginning September 2014 in various areas of particle theory, cosmology, and astrophysics. In particular, we invite applications for positions:

-- in the theoretical high energy physics group, and more specifically with Prof. Jared Kaplan;

-- in astrophysics with Prof. Brice Menard, whose interests include galaxy evolution, large-scale structure, gravitational lensing and cosmology, in the context of large photometric and/or spectroscopic surveys;

-- in astrophysics, with Prof. Nadia Zakamska on on projects in observational or theoretical extragalactic astronomy; her interests include galaxy formation, quasars and quasar feedback, and starburst galaxies;

-- and several positions in theoretical physical and early-Universe cosmology and particle astrophysics with Profs. Marc Kamionkowski, Joseph Silk and Alex Szalay.

The successful applicants will work in a vibrant particle theory group:

and/or the Center for Astrophysical Sciences

- http://physics-astronomy.jhu.edu/people/?filter=astrophysics

We seek intellectually ambitious candidates with initiative and the ability to work both collaboratively and independently. Johns Hopkins University is a member of SDSS 3&4, Pan-STARRS, PFS, Euclid and LSST projects. It is the home of the WMAP, CLASS and the HST ACS teams. The department benefits from close interactions with the adjacent Space Telescope Science Institute (see http://www.stsci.edu/institute/) and has a lively group of postdoctoral fellows.

Applications should consist of a CV, list of publications, summary of research interests, and three letters of recommendation, submitted to AcademicJobsOnline, at www.academicjobsonline.org. Applications will be due December 1st, 2013. A Ph.D. in physics or astronomy is required. Johns Hopkins is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer, and welcomes applications from women and members of underrepresented groups
