The Department is committed to carrying out state-of-the-art research across a number of areas of physics and closely related areas of science and technology. With approximately 20 research active faculty members, approximately 60 graduate students are mentored in research, making substantial contributions and leading projects themselves as they progress towards completion of their degrees. Many opportunities also exist for undergraduate research participation, for example, through senior thesis projects. With these strong student involvements, the Department’s research activities support and compliment student education and professional preparation.
The postdoc will assist Dr. Yuan Li to conduct research in the broad areas of galaxy evolution, galaxy clusters, black hole accretion and feedback, interstellar medium, intra-cluster medium and the circum-galactic medium.
Applicants should have a PhD in physics, astronomy, or a closely related field by the appointment start date.
A background in computational astrophysics is preferred, but not required. Candidates with experience in X-ray/ALMA/optical IFU observations are also encouraged to apply.
