Post-doctoral position in gravitational waves at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and University of Maryland.
The Gravitational Astrophysics Laboratory at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and the Maryland Gravitational Wave Theory Group at the University of Maryland-College Park (UMCP) are seeking applications for a joint postdoctoral position in gravitational waves, possibly opening in the Fall of 2012. The position is for one year with the possibility of renewal for additional years.
This position supports a joint project, led by John Baker (GSFC), and Alessandra Buonanno (UMCP), to study the performance of future space-based gravitational-wave instruments in observing binary black-hole mergers. Competitive applicants should have background in source modeling, instrument modeling and/or data analysis.
It is requested that all application materials be sent as pdf files or as plain text. Please merge all application materials (other than letters of recommendation) into one pdf file if at all possible.
The deadline for receipt of all application materials is January 5, 2012. Maryland is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
