FACULTY POSITION, Department of Physics, ARTS AND SCIENCE, New York University

The Department of Physics of New York University invites applications for one open rank faculty position in the general area of Astrophysics, Astroparticle Physics and Cosmology to begin as early as September 1, 2016, pending administrative and budgetary approval.

A theorist whose expertise and interests overlap broadly with all of these areas will be favored, but exceptional candidates with other profiles will be considered. The successful candidate will have a PhD and a demonstrated record of research accomplishments and leadership at the highest level. The job responsibilities include research, teaching in the graduate and undergraduate programs, and participation in the life of the Department.

Applications must be submitted via the CCPP Online Application System. Your complete application must include a CV, publication list, statement of research interests, and a list of at least three people who will be submitting letters of recommendation. Consideration of applications will begin on Nov 15 and applications completed by then will be given highest priority. More information about the Physics Department's research programs can be found at http://physics.as.nyu.edu.

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 2016, depending on 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, cosmology, high-energy theory, and particle theory. Submitted applications will be also considered for postdoctoral openings supported by individual faculty.

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 and cosmology), R. Scoccimarro (cosmology), J. Tinker (cosmology and galaxy clustering; SDSS) 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.

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, 2015 will receive top priority.
