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 CPPP have data access to the Sloan Digital Sky Survey III and IV, the possibility of participating in certain projects of the Palomar Transient Factory, 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 2017 and requires the completion of a PhD.

Applicants should submit CV, publication list, short (2-3 pages) statement of research interests and the names of 3 letter writes by email to mmodjaz@nyu.edu. They should arrange for three letters of reference to be emailed to mmodjaz@nyu.edu, either directly by the referees or provided via a third party (i.e., dossier service or career center). Review of the applications will start on January 15 and continue till January 31, 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.

Posdoctoral fellowship in Theoretical Particle Physics, The Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP) at NYU

The Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP) at NYU anticipates making one Postdoctoral appointment to start in September 2017. Candidates will work under the supervision of Profs. G. Gabadadze and M. Porrati in areas of specializations including theoretical particle physics, quantum field theory and string theory. Postdocs at CCPP benefit from the lively atmosphere of the Center and a vigorous visitors program.

Applications must be submitted via the CCPP Online Application System (at the bottom of this page). A 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 15, 2016 will receive top priority.

We strongly encourage applications from women, racial and ethnic minorities, and other individuals who are under-represented in the profession, across color, creed, race, ethnic and national origin, physical ability, gender and sexual identity, or any other legally protected basis. NYU affirms the value of differing perspectives on the world as we strive to build the strongest possible university with the widest reach.


James Arthur Postdoctoral Fellowships, The Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP) at NYU

The Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP) at NYU anticipates awarding one to two James Arthur Postdoctoral Fellowships to start in September 2017, subject to the availability of funding. 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, and cosmology. Submitted applications will be also considered for postdoctoral openings supported by individual faculty.

CCPP has recently strengthened and broadened its astrophysics program in theoretical and observational cosmology and exoplanets, with three new faculty: Anthony Pullen (observational cosmology and intensity mapping) is joining us in August 2016, and Yacine Ali-Haimoud (theoretical cosmology) and Katherine Deck (astrodynamics, exoplanets) are arriving in Fall 2017. Other CCPP faculty members are 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 and cosmology), R. Scoccimarro (cosmology), J. Tinker (cosmology and galaxy clustering; SDSS) and N. Weiner (particle and astroparticle theory, cosmology).

Postdocs benefit from the lively atmosphere of the Center and a vigorous visitors program. Members of CCPP 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. The Center also has close ties with NYU's Courant Institute and the Center for Data Science.

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. Your complete application must include a CV, publication list, statement of research interests, and three letters of recommendation; the names of the people who will be submitting letters of recommendation should be listed in the application. The application should be submitted via below CCPP Online Application System.

CCPP strives to further NYU's mission as an institution that welcomes and embraces diversity, and encourages applications from diverse candidates.

Complete applications received by December 1, 2016 will receive top priority.

Included Benefits:

Medical and Dental Insurance.
