Post Doctoral Researcher, Gamma-Ray Astrophysics
Job no: 496172
Work type: Staff
Categories: Research & Laboratory, Full Time
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher position within the gamma-ray astrophysics group in the Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Bartol Research Institute at the University of Delaware. The appointment is for at least two years with extensions possible, subject to performance and availability of funds.
The Delaware gamma-ray group is a member of the VERITAS and CTA projects, and has played a leading role in the technical and scientific development of these facilities. The candidate will have the opportunity to work with data and Monte Carlo simulations from both projects. They may also contribute to the development of the novel prototype Schwarzchild-Couder telescope. Scientific interests of the group are broad, and include the study of high energy emission from Galactic sources such as gamma-ray binary systems, supernova remnants and pulsar wind nebulae, and the search for rapid transients associated with fast radio bursts.
A Ph.D. in physics or astronomy is required, and the successful applicant is expected to have significant experience with the science and tools of astroparticle physics / multimessenger astronomy.
Interested applicants should submit:
• a curriculum vitae
• A brief (1-2 page) description of research experience
• a list of publications
