JHU Postdoctoral Position with Goddard X-ray Galaxies Group
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in observational extragalactic astronomy to work with the X-ray galaxies group at Goddard Space Flight Center (see http://xraydeep.org/). The successful candidate will play a key role in investigations of how the formation of X-ray binary populations depends on their localized host galaxy environments. The candidate is expected to develop broad-band SED (spectral energy distribution) fitting techniques, using UV through mid-IR data, to determine star-formation histories in subgalactic regions of nearby galaxies.
The position will be available immediately following the application deadline, and will be renewable annually for up to three years, contingent upon satisfactory performance and funding. Applicants must have a PhD in Astronomy or a related field. Previous experience in the analysis of imaging data from GALEX, HST, 2MASS, and Spitzer, as well as SED related research of nearby galaxies will be an advantage.
To apply, email a single PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org containing a CV, publication list, and a brief 1-page research statement of your scientific interests and previous data analysis experience. Also arrange for 3 letters of reference to be emailed as PDFs. Applications should be received by October 1, 2014; however, review will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
Preliminary inquiries may be addressed via e-mail to email@example.com.
