The Australian National University(ANU), Research School of Astronomy based at Mount Stromlo Observatory in Canberra, invites applications for a 3-year postdoctoral position in computational astrophysics in Dr Christoph Federrath's research group.
Dr Federrath's group is developing innovative techniques for star and cluster formation, molecular cloud evolution, and turbulent plasmas, with applications to star, planet and galaxy formation and evolution, first stars, interstellar medium, and cosmic structure formation. For this postdoctoral position we are especially looking for excellent early career researchers. The position is open to excellent applicants from all fields, and applicants with previous experience in computational hydrodynamics (grid-based and/or SPH), galaxy, star or planet formation, are especially encouraged to apply. This position further involves collaboration with P. Hopkins (Caltech), N. Schneider (Cologne), J. Kainulainen (MPIA), and V. Ossenkopf (Cologne).
Application information In order to apply please upload the following documents.
- A cover letter - A current curriculum vitae (CV) with an up to date publication list - A two (2) page description of your previous research - A three (3) page statement describing your future research plan - A statement addressing the selection criteria
