Posted by Bruce Allen on 14 August 2007

Date: 14 August 2007 Title: Post-doctoral research position for the Einstein@Home project at UWM Posted by: Bruce Allen The Einstein@Home Project (http://einstein.phys.uwm.edu/) is seeking to fill a post doc position at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee (http://www.lsc-group.phys.uwm.edu), starting as soon as possible. Einstein@Home is a public distributed computing project that utilizes compute cycles donated by the general public to analyze data collected by the gravitational wave detectors of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration in search of continuous gravitational wave signals. The successful candidate will work on various aspects of the project, including the design and development of searches, and the post-processing and analysis of the incoming results. Applicants should have a PhD in Physics, good computer skills, experience with Linux and C/C++ programming, be highly motivated, and good team players.

Previous experience in gravitational wave data analysis is a plus. The Einstein@Home project is a collaboration of scientists at different institutions in the US and in Europe. The successful candidate will be expected to spend some time working at partner institutions. Applications should include a CV, a statement of research interests, and three letters of reference, which should be sent by the referees and *not* be included with the material sent by the applicant.

All material should be sent to:

	Einstein@Home Post Doc Applications
	c/o Kate Valerius
	Dept. of Physics, UWM
	PO Box 413
	Milwaukee, WI 53201  
  
EĀ­mail applications are also accepted and should be sent to katev@uwm.edu with subject "Einstein@Home Post Doc Application" Reference letters can also be emailed by the referees to katev@uwm.edu
