The Department of Physics and Astronomy at Rice University expects to offer a three year postdoctoral position in Theoretical and Computational Cosmology, Gravitation and Astroparticle Physics, starting in the Fall of 2024. The candidate will be encouraged to collaborate with members of the Relativistic Astrophysics and Cosmology group and Particle Physics Groups at Rice, in particular with Prof. Mustafa A. Amin as well as Prof. Andrew J. Long, and also engage in independent research. The position is initially for two years, with the third year contingent on performance and funding.

A PhD in physics or astronomy is required, and some experience in numerical simulations of cosmological fields/gravitation in preferred but not required. Candidates from traditionally underrepresented groups in Physics and Astronomy are particularly encouraged to apply. Exceptional candidates might be encouraged to apply to Rice Academy of Fellows program [https://riceacademy.rice.edu/].

The applicant must submit a curriculum vitae including a list of publications, brief description of research accomplishments/interests (max 3 pages) at https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/26682, and also arrange for three reference letters to be submitted via the same website.
