Postdoctoral research position in gravitational physics at the University of Mississippi

Sep 03, 2020

The gravity group at the University of Mississippi invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher in gravitational physics/astrophysics, with emphasis on: numerical relativity, testing general relativity, strong-field gravity, compact objects, gravitational waves, gravitational-wave data analysis, and related topics.
Review of applications will begin Nov. 15, 2020 and will continue until the position is filled.

Preference will be given to candidates with experience in numerical relativity and/or testing general relativity. A PhD in physics/mathematics/astronomy is required by the time of the initial appointment. The position is for two years, with potential for renewal for a third year contingent on performance and funding.

The successful applicant will develop and advance their own independent research program, collaborate with UMiss gravity group faculty (Leo Stein, Anuradha Gupta, and Luca Bombelli) on their research, and help to train UM students. UMiss is a member of the Simulating eXtreme Spacetimes (SXS) collaboration, and the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC), and will thus provide ample opportunities to collaborate with other SXS and LSC member institutions.

The nominal starting date for the position is Aug. 23, 2021, but is flexible.
