1. James Arthur Postdoctoral Fellowship – Focus on High Energy Theory

The Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP) at NYU anticipates awarding a James Arthur Postdoctoral Fellowship to start in September 2022 in the area of high energy theoretical physics. 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 to high energy theoretical physics. Submitted applications will also be considered for other postdoctoral openings within the CCPP.

The CCPP is a center designed to pursue astrophysics, cosmology, and high energy physics in a unified setting that encourages broad interaction between these disciplines. Within high energy physics, the faculty of the CCPP pursue particle theory, gravity, cosmology, string theory, and experimental particle physics. Within astrophysics, the faculty of the CCCP pursue observational and theoretical cosmology, large astronomical surveys, intensity mapping, astroparticle physics, exoplanets, high energy astrophysics, time domain astrophysics, supernovae, and numerical astrophysics. The activities in the center encourage the interchange of ideas and cross-disciplinary collaboration among these areas.

Postdocs benefit from the lively atmosphere of the Center and a vigorous visitors program. The CCPP also has close ties to the nearby Flatiron Institute’s Center for Computational Astrophysics (CCA), with weekly joint group meetings and other areas of cooperation. Members of the CCPP also collaborate closely with NYU’s Courant Institute and the Center for Data Science. Members of CCPP participate in the ATLAS experiment, the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument (DESI) project, the Las Cumbres Observatory, the Pierre Auger collaboration, the Sloan Digital Sky Survey V project, and SphereX.

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, a statement of research interests (not to exceed three pages total including text, figures, and references cited), 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 https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/19129.

CCPP strives to further NYU’s mission as an inclusive institution and encourages applications from a diverse set of candidates.

Applications received by November 15 will receive full consideration.

2. James Arthur Postdoctoral Fellowship – Focus on Unifying Connections

The Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics (CCPP) at NYU anticipates awarding a James Arthur Postdoctoral Fellowship to start in September 2022, in the areas of astrophysics, astroparticle physics, cosmology, and/or high energy theoretical physics, with an emphasis on individuals whose work connects to multiple of these fields. James Arthur Fellows pursue independent research projects and work with others in the group as their interests dictate. Submitted applications will also be considered for other postdoctoral openings within the CCPP.
