The Leonard E Parker Center for Gravitation, Cosmology and Astrophysics is supported by NASA, the National Science Foundation, UW-Milwaukee College of Letters and Science, and UW-Milwaukee Graduate School. Any opinions, findings, and conclusions or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of these organizations.
The CGCA at UWM has active research efforts in gravity, cosmology, astronomy, and astrophysics, with membership in the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, the Zwicky Transient Facility, the GROWTH collaboration, the NANOGrav Physics Frontiers Center. The core group is comprised of 7 faculty (Brady, Chang, Creighton, Erb, Kaplan, Siemens and Wiseman), 8 scientists, 9 postdocs, and 14 graduate students. Profs. Allen and Papa (now at the Albert Einstein Institute, AEI) maintain partial adjunct appointments at UWM, and emeritus faculty Friedman and Parker participate broadly in the academic life of the Center.
We are recruiting postdoctoral research associates across gravity, cosmology, astronomy and astrophysics to enhance the existing team and to strengthen our efforts in multi-messenger observations/theory. Applicants with backgrounds in gravitational-wave physics, astronomy/astrophysics, theoretical and/or numerical relativity, or cosmology are encouraged to apply. The positions include competitive salary and excellent fringe benefits.
Some of these positions have an explicit education/outreach component. Thus, we strongly encourage applicants with a strong interest in education/outreach.
Applicants should send a C.V., publication list, and a brief statement of their research interests by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a brief statement of your education/outreach experience and interests if you are interested in a position with an explicit education/outreach component.
Applicants should also arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent by e-mail to the above address. Review of applications will begin on January 15th, 2018. Questions should also be sent to the above address.
