Position Description:   URMs  

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in theoretical astrophysics at the Center for Astrophysical Sciences of the Johns Hopkins University (JHU). Working under the supervision of Professor Julian Krolik, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to join a variety of projects having to do with black hole accretion. Contexts include merging supermassive black holes, merging neutron stars, tidal disruption events, and others. These projects may be analytic or computational or both, and will in many cases include collaboration with leading astrophysical theorists from around the world. The postdoc will also have time to perform independent research.

The starting date for this position is flexible, but could be as early as spring or as late as fall, 2023. Officially the appointment must be renewed annually, but extension to three years is expected. Benefits include health insurance.

The JHU Center for Astrophysical Sciences and the adjacent Space Telescope Science Institute form a large and lively astrophysical community. Thanks to a recent large private gift, the JHU astrophysics group is slated to grow further in the next several years. In this environment, the postdoc will be immersed in first-rate work on everything from cosmology to extra-solar planets.

Applicants should upload a letter of application, CV, list of publications, and a statement of research interests to AcademicJobsOnline (AJO). Three letters of recommendation should also be submitted through AJO.
