Samuel P. Langley Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Pittsburgh

The Pittsburgh Particle physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology Center (PITT PACC,, within the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Pittsburgh invites applications for a postdoctoral research fellow position in astrophysics, cosmology, or the interface between particle physics and astrophysics. Up to two fellowships will be awarded. Special consideration will be given to candidates with interest and expertise in cosmology theory, the physics of dark matter, and/or astrophysical survey data analysis and interpretation OR computational astrophysics with a focus on galaxy evolution, the ISM, CGM, or outflows. The fellowship will begin in the fall of 2023. The appointment will initially be for two years with the expectation of extension to a third year, and possibly beyond, contingent upon performance. Generous salary and research funds will be provided to all Langley Fellows.

PITT PACC is a vibrant community of faculty, postdocs, and students that conduct theoretical, experimental, and observational research in particle physics, astrophysics, and cosmology.
