Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Theoretical and Computational Astrophysics

The astrophysics group at the Rochester Institute of Technology is seeking one or more outstanding postdoctoral researchers in theoretical astrophysics. We are particularly interested in candidates with computational experience, to make use of the superb facilities at RIT for gravitational simulations. These include a 32-node GRAPE cluster with a speed of 4 Tflops; three GRAPE-6 computers; and a 110 node high-performance cluster. The successful applicant will work with David Merritt and Joshua Faber on one or more topics of current research interest at RIT, which include evolution of galactic nuclei, calculation of event rates for gravitational wave detectors, interaction of supermassive black holes with their stellar and gaseous environments, and stellar collisions. Outstanding candidates in related fields will also be considered. To apply, please send a CV and statement of research interests to David Merritt at In addition, please arrange for 2-3 letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address before January 15 2010.

RIT is committed to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action.
