Data Science/SN postdoc position at NYU

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship at New York University. The successful candidate will work with Prof. Maryam Modjaz and collaborators (including the group of Prof. David Hogg at NYU) on data science related aspects of supernovae data analysis, and will be also encouraged to pursue independent research on related topics. Applicants with previous experience in supernova science (spectroscopy & photometry) and/or in general spectroscopy and/or data science tools are particularly encouraged to apply. The supernova group is part of NYU’s Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP). Members of the NYU SN group can participate in the Global SN project with the Las Cumbres Observatories, as well as in certain projects of the Palomar Transient Factory; in addition, they have data access to the Sloan Digital Sky Survey III and IV, enjoy collaborations with the NYU Center of Data Science (in which CCPP member Prof David Hogg is involved) and are in close proximity to the new Simons' Center for Computational Astronomy.

The appointment is for two years; renewal for a third year is subject to performance and availability of funds. The starting date will be on or before Sep 1, 2018 and requires the completion of a PhD.

Applications must be submitted via the CCPP Online Application System. Applicants should submit CV, publication list, short (2-3 pages) statement of research interests and the names of 3 letter writers, who will have to upload their letters to the CCPP system. Review of the applications will start on December 15, 2017, though the position will remain open until filled. NYU is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer and committed to excellence through diversity; thus, applications from members of underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged.
