Position: Postdoctoral Research Associate - Computational Relativistic Astrophysics/Numerical Relativity
Institution: West Virginia University
Department: Department of Mathematics
Location: Morgantown, West Virginia, United States
Duties: To work on a variety of numerical relativity projects in the field of Computational Relativistic Astrophysics/Numerical Relativity, including for example supercomputer simulations of magnetized binary neutron star mergers and a volunteer-computing/public-outreach project which is aimed at unlocking the consumer-grade desktop computer as a core tool for numerical relativity simulations of black holes and black hole binaries
Requirements: Ph.D. in Physics or a related field. Strong programming skills (C and Python, or closely related languages). Experience in high-performance computing and large-scale data analysis. Excellent ability to communicate research to both experts and non-experts
   
Text: Successful candidates will work with a multi-institution network of collaborators on a variety of numerical relativity projects, including for example (1) supercomputer simulations of magnetized binary neutron star mergers with IllinoisGRMHD (https://illinoisgrmhd.net); and (2) a volunteer-computing / public-outreach project called BlackHoles@Home (https://blackholesathome.net), which is aimed at unlocking the consumer-grade desktop computer as a core tool for numerical relativity simulations of black holes and black hole binaries. The Department of Mathematics at West Virginia University is seeking two postdoctoral researchers in the field of Computational Relativistic Astrophysics/Numerical Relativity. Preferred start date is September 2019, though earlier start dates are acceptable. These positions may be renewed in annualized increments for up to three years, contingent upon performance, need, and funding.
