Attention: J. Jeremy Goodman, Professor, Astrophysical Sciences

The Department of Astrophysical Sciences, Princeton University, invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Astrophysics. Half of the Fellow's effort will be numerical simulations and theoretical analyses in support of the Princeton Magnetorotational Experiment ( http://mri.pppl.gov ) in collaboration with Professor Jeremy Goodman and Principal Research Physicist Hantao Ji. The other half will be research at the Fellow's discretion but within computational astrophysics or plasma physics, as the position is supported in part by the NSF Center for Magnetic Self-Organization. Professor James Stone, in addition to Goodman and Ji, will participate in possible computational astrophysics projects. The start date can be as early as September 2009.

Appointments are for one year, renewable annually based on satisfactory performance, for a total of up to three years, funds permitting. Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, bibliography and statement of research interests, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent to the above electronic address. Applications will be reviewed beginning by July 1, 2009.

Princeton University is an equal opportunity employer and complies with applicable EEO and affirmative action regulations. For information about applying to Princeton and voluntarily self-identifying, please link to http://www.princeton.edu/dof/about_us/dof_job_openings/
