Postdoc Benefits

Assistant Research Scientist for Rocket and Laboratory Experiments in Astrophysics

The Johns Hopkins University seeks an Assistant Research Scientist to carryout Rocket and Laboratory Experiments in Astrophysics.  The qualified candidate is expected to have experience with preparing and launching sounding rocket experiments with an emphasis in far-ultraviolet spectral multiplexing, the reduction and analysis of such data, its comparison to theoretical calculations, and the preparation of scientific publications and reports. 

The successful candidate will initially support on-going sounding rocket missions and, in addition,  take the lead in the preparation of proposals to create new technologies for carrying out spectral multiplexing science, and supporting its workforce development. Successful applications for grants will lead to longer term employment and career advancement on the candidate‚Äôs own terms. 

Candidates should possess a PhD degree in a relevant field by date of appointment. The salary offered will be competitive and commensurate with experience. For information on benefits please visit the JHU HR website.

The appointment is expected to begin September 2024. Candidates must provide a cover letter, curriculum vitae including a complete publications list. Questions regarding the position should be addressed to Liz Alwanyi ([email protected]). The Johns Hopkins University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.

Postdoctoral Position in Neutron Scattering from Confined and Driven Quantum Materials

A postdoc position is available in a project that will probe static and dynamic properties of confined and driven quantum materials through materials synthesis and neutron scattering. This work will be supervised by Collin Broholm and Satoru Nakatsuji at the Institute for Quantum Matter at the Johns Hopkins University. A PHD in physics is a requisite and experience in thin film synthesis or neutron scattering will be advantageous.

Applications, including CV, a list of publications, and 3 references should be sent to http://apply.interfolio.com/143003. Review of applications will commence immediately and continue until the position is filled.

Associate Research Scientist for X-ray Laboratory Astrophysics

The Johns Hopkins University seeks an Associate Research Scientist for x-ray laboratory astrophysics research.  The qualified candidate is expected to have experience in experiment, data analysis, and theoretical calculations, as well as a solid publication record.

The successful candidate will be co-located with and work as part of the X-ray Astrophysics Lab at the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) in Greenbelt, MD. The candidate will contribute to construction, commissioning, and operation of a portable, miniature, permanent-magnet electron beam ion trap (EBIT), as well as deployment of the EBIT to field campaigns at synchrotron light sources. The candidate will also take part in field campaigns at several collaborating institutions worldwide, many of which involve the deployment of NASA/GSFC x-ray calorimeter spectrometer instruments optimized for high-resolution, broadband x-ray spectroscopy. The candidate should be familiar with theoretical techniques used in x-ray laboratory astrophysics, and should have experience with the Flexible Atomic Code (FAC) or equivalent.

Candidates should possess a PhD degree in a relevant field by date of appointment. The salary offered will be competitive and commensurate with experience. For information on benefits please visit the JHU HR website.

The appointment is expected to begin approximately early 2024.

Candidates must provide a cover letter, curriculum vitae including a complete publications list. Questions regarding the position should be addressed to Joe Zolenas ([email protected]). The Johns Hopkins University is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer.
