The Gravitational-Wave Physics and Astronomy Center (GWPAC) at California State University welcomes applications for a Postdoctoral Associate in Gravitational-Wave Physics. GWPAC faculty members include Al Agnew, Geoffrey Lovelace, Jocelyn Read, and Director Joshua Smith. Its research projects include searches for binary systems with black holes and neutron stars with the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO), characterization of the LIGO detectors, waveform modeling including analytical solutions for neutron stars with realistic equations of state, modes and tides, numerical relativity simulations of binary black hole and black hole neutron star systems as part of the Simulating eXtreme Spacetimes (SXS) Collaboration, optical characterization of LIGO optics, theoretical calculations of thermal noise and mathematical relativity. The successful applicant will establish and carry out a research program in gravitational-wave physics that compliments the existing strengths in GWPAC and involves undergraduate and master’s students. Women and members of groups traditionally underrepresented in physics and astronomy are especially encouraged to apply.
The application deadline is 10/31/16 or until filled.

Please note that our human resources department uses a fairly generic (and aging) form for the application. When navigating it, on page 4, note that you’ll probably need to choose “Other” for your major, because physics and astronomy are not listed. On page 6, it’s not necessary to enter anything. It’s not necessary to enter a driver license on page 7. For employment history, only list positions held after the date you received your doctorate.
