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

Northwestern University expects to offer several postdoctoral positions in astronomy and astrophysics starting in Fall 2017.

These positions will be part of the Center for Interdisciplinary Exploration and Research in Astrophysics (CIERA) at Northwestern, and successful applicants will benefit from interaction with a broad interdisciplinary group of researchers.

Of particular interest this year are candidates who will work with Prof. Claude-André Faucher-Giguère on galaxy formation modeling (including cosmological simulations, star formation and stellar feedback, supermassive black hole growth and feedback, IGM and CGM predictions, and mock HST/JWST observations), with Prof. Vicky Kalogera on single and binary star modeling and supernova progenitors, with Prof. Raffaella Margutti on broad-band observations -- X-rays to radio -- and modeling of Astronomical Transients (including SuperLuminous Supernovae, Stellar Explosions, Gamma-Ray Bursts and Tidal Disruption Events), or with Prof. Fred Rasio on the modeling of dense star clusters.

Applications should include a CV (including a list of publications with the most important 1 to 3 publications indicated with an asterisk), a three-page statement of research accomplishments and plans, and arrange for at least three letters of recommendation to be uploaded to Academic Jobs Online (preferred) or sent to the above email address. Applications received by December 1st, 2016 will receive full consideration. Later applications will be considered until all positions are filled.

Please clearly state which postdoctoral positions you are applying for in your cover letter. If you wish to apply for other Northwestern astronomy-related postdoctoral positions simultaneously, submit a single copy of your application materials and specify all positions in your cover letter. Applicants must complete their Ph.D. requirements prior to appointment.
