Postdoctoral Researcher in Gravitational Physics/Astrophysics
The gravity group at the University of Mississippi invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher in
gravitational physics/astrophysics, with emphasis on: strong-field gravity, compact objects,
gravitational waves, testing general relativity, numerical relativity, gravitational-wave data analysis, and
related topics. A Ph.D. in physics/mathematics/astronomy is required by the time of the initial
appointment. Candidates should have expertise in analytical relativity and/or numerical computing,
ideally both. 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 UM gravity group faculty (Luca Bombelli, Marco Cavaglia, and Leo Stein) on their
research, and help to train UM students.
Applicants should submit an application by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org,
including: a complete CV in PDF format (including publication list); a research proposal which cover
research interests and experience; and contact information for three professional references who may
provide letters. Letters are not requested at this time; these will be solicited later. Use the email
subject "Gravity postdoc."
Review of applications will begin November 1, 2018 and will continue until the position is filled.
Please direct questions about the position to Leo Stein email@example.com.
