Postdoctoral fellowship in theoretical and numerical astrophysics. PostDoc position in the department of Particle Physics and Astrophysics at Weizmann institute of Science in the group of Tal Alexander for 2 years. A 2 year postdoctoral fellowship in theoretical and numerical astrophysics is available for working with Prof. Tal Alexander on problems related to dynamical processes near massive black holes in galactic nuclei. This position is part of an extensive research program in theoretical stellar dynamics, supported by a large ERC grant, which includes the acquisition of a large high performance computer cluster for simulations. The position’s starting date and duration are flexible; extension may be possible upon successful completion. A strong background in stellar dynamics, stellar physics and computational physics is an advantage. Projects are available involving theoretical and simulational studies of stellar processes near massive black holes. Time will be available for independent research.
The application can be submitted any time, and will be considered until the position is filled. It should include a CV, a list of publications, a brief summary of current research, and 3 letters of recommendation (to be sent in directly). It may be sent by e-mail (preferred), fax, or regular mail. Email inquiries are welcome. There are no restrictions on citizenship.
Candidates must hold a PhD in astronomy or physics by the date of appointment and be less than 4 years after the award of the PhD.
