Postdoctoral position in the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory (21/08/2014)

The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory has an immediate opening for the position of on-site deputy to the VERITAS Observatory Manager (Dr. Pascal Fortin) and VERITAS IT specialist.  The primary focus of this key position is helping ensure continued smooth operation of VERITAS, and the successful candidate will be expected to perform a number of software and hardware tasks at the VERITAS site in Arizona.  In particular they will maintain the ~50 linux-based computers used during VERITAS operations, as well as the experiment's network infrastructure, communications systems and all related documentation.  The specific tasks required are thoroughly detailed in the link below.  We do expect the scientist will, after settling-in, have ~1/4 time available for independent research (e.g. with VERITAS and other SAO instruments). Funding is available for the successful candidate to travel to scientific meetings and conferences.

 Non-US citizens are welcome to apply, but a strong command of the English language is required.  The candidate should have at least some post-doctoral research experience and must have a driver’s license.

 The hire will be made on the Government Service scale at Grade-11.  Promotions are possible.  The term of the position is indefinite, however the position is contingent upon continued VERITAS site-operations funding.

 The application deadline is September 12, 2014.

 Potential applicants are strongly encouraged contact Dr. Wystan Benbow (Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs.

Tenure track position in astrophysics at UNAM, Mexique (21/08/2014)

Postdoctoral position in Experimental Particle Astrophysics (13/05/2014)

Michigan State hosts a growing program in particle astrophysics, including efforts on both IceCube and the HAWC TeV gamma ray observatory, which benefits from close connections to high energy physics groups working in neutrino physics and at the LHC. The Michigan State IceCube group, led by Prof. Tyce DeYoung, has a leading role in the analysis of data from IceCube’s DeepCore low energy extension, particularly measurements of neutrino oscillations using the atmospheric neutrino flux.

Faculty position astroparticles

The Université Libre de Bruxelles is looking for candidates in experimental astroparticles to join the faculty here. One experimental affiliation of interest to us is CTA to add to our IceCube group.
