Postdoctoral Positions

in Astrophysics & Cosmology

The Department of Physics and Astronomy of the Johns Hopkins University invites applications for multiple postdoctoral appointments in observational and/or theoretical astrophysics, cosmology and particle astrophysics to work primarily with professors:

- Marc Kamionkowski whose interests include, but are not limited to, theoretical early-Universe and physical cosmology, dark matter, cosmic acceleration, and particle astrophysics, and some stellar and high-energy astrophysics.

- Brice Ménard, working on statistical analyses of large datasets, either photometric or spectroscopic and with interests in both extragalactic and Galactic science.

- Adam Riess, interested in observational cosmology,
- and/or
Kevin Schlaufman, working on exoplanets, planet formation, metal-poor stars, or Milky Way formation,

but also with JHU faculty members with related interests. We seek intellectually ambitious candidates with initiative and the ability to work both collaboratively and independently.
