Postdoctoral Positions in Astrophysics, Cosmology and Particle Theory

James Arthur Postdoctoral Fellowships

The Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP) at NYU anticipates awarding two James Arthur Postdoctoral Fellowships to start in September 2015. James Arthur Fellows pursue independent research projects and work with others in the group as their interests dictate. Selection will be based on evidence of the potential to make important contributions in one or more of the following research areas: astrophysics (theoretical and observational), astroparticle physics, cosmology and particle physics. Submitted applications will be also considered for postdoctoral openings supported by individual faculty. The CCPP anticipates appointing a postdoc in the field of particle phenomenology.

CCPP faculty members generally have broad interests. The following is a list of faculty and their current primary activity: Professors M. Blanton (observational astrophysics; SDSS), K. Cranmer (experimental particle physics; ATLAS), S. Dubovsky (particle theory and cosmology), G. Dvali (particle theory, black holes, cosmology), G. Farrar (particle physics, astrophysics, astroparticle physics; Pierre Auger Observatory), G. Gabadadze (particle theory, gravity and cosmology), A. Gruzinov (theoretical astrophysics and cosmology), D. Hogg (galaxy astrophysics and exoplanets), M. Kleban (string theory and cosmology), A. MacFadyen (high energy astrophysics, numerical simulations), M. Modjaz (observational astrophysics, supernovae), M. Porrati (string theory), J. Ruderman (particle theory), R. Scoccimarro (cosmology), and N. Weiner (particle and astroparticle theory, cosmology). The Center also has close ties with NYU's Courant Institute and the Center for Data Science.

Postdocs benefit from the lively atmosphere of the Center and a vigorous visitors program. Members of CPPP have data access to the Sloan Digital Sky Survey III and IV, the opportunity to participate in the Pierre Auger collaboration and the possibility of participating in certain projects of the Palomar Transient Factory collaboration.

Appointments are usually for three years. Exceptional candidates will be considered for longer term appointments. Those proposing to come with funding from outside fellowships will be eligible for continuation of their appointment.

Applications must be submitted via below CCPP Online Application System. Your complete application must include a CV, publication list, statement of research interests, and a list of three people who will be submitting letters of recommendation.

Complete applications received by December 1, 2014 will receive top priority.

Included Benefits: Medical and Dental Insurance.
