Postdoctoral Positions in Explosive and Stellar Astrophysics
Inquiries may be addressed to Professor Lars Bildsten (firstname.lastname@example.org)
There will be a postdoctoral opening in the research group of Prof. Lars Bildsten starting September 1, 2014. The postdoctoral researcher would carry out their research in collaboration with Bildsten's research group. The scope of the theoretical work ranges from thermonuclear supernova to angular momentum transport within stars relevant to core collapse supernovae progenitors and asteroseismology. Developing and using the computational tool, Modules for Experiments in Stellar Astrophysics (MESA) is also a large part of the group's activities. We also collaborate with the Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope (LCOGT) and the intermediate Palomar Transient Factory (iPTF); thereby welcoming theoretically-minded observational astrophysicists to apply.
The deadline for applications (research statement and CV) and three letters of reference is November 15, 2013. Later applications will be considered only as long as openings exist.
