Caltech Postdoctoral & Senior Postdoctoral Positions

(Posted here Oct 23, 2017)

Caltech Postdoctoral & Senior Postdoctoral positions in Theoretical Aspects of Gravitational-Wave Science, including numerical relativity

The California Institute of Technology invites applications for postdoctoral and senior postdoctoral appointments in theoretical aspects of gravitational-wave science.

These positions are for researchers in any of the three focus areas of our group:
  • Numerical relativity and computational relativistic astrophysics [Saul Teukolsky, Mark Scheel, Francois Hebert, and grad students], including a strong collaboration with the Cornell group led by Saul Teukolsky and Larry Kidder. Systems and phenomena studied include compact binaries (BH/BH, NS/BH, NS/NS) as well as stellar collapse and supernova explosions.
  • Gravitational-wave source analysis, data analysis, and astrophysics [Yanbei Chen, Sterl Phinney, Curt Cutler, Leo Stein, Michele Vallisneri, and grad students]. This effort has close ties to the Caltech theoretical astrophysics and observational astronomy programs, to the Caltech numerical relativity group, to the LIGO Laboratory, to the JPL gravitational-wave group, and to the Caltech NANOGrav group.
  • Gravitational-wave detectors [Yanbei Chen, Rana Adhikari, and grad students]. This involves the application of quantum measurement and quantum control theory to advanced gravitational-wave detectors, as well as the formulation of experimental tests of quantum mechanics that can be performed on these detectors. This research is carried out in collaboration or interaction with members of the LIGO Lab, and other Caltech research groups.
These three research programs are embedded in Caltech's TAPIR group(Theoretical Astrophysics Including Relativity), and the Walter Burke Institute For Theoretical Physics, and are associated with the Caltech/JPL Association for Gravitational Wave Research, which includes the Caltech portion of LIGO and the Caltech/JPL portion of LISA.

By a single application one can be considered for Caltech's Burke Postdoctoral Fellowships in Theoretical Physics and Astrophysics, including Relativity and for regular postdoctoral and senior postdoctoral positions.

The application deadline is November 15, though late applications will continue to be considered until all positions are filled.

LIGO Postdoctoral Position at Stanford University

The LIGO team at Stanford University is searching for a postdoctoral scholar to work with us on cryogenics, seismic isolation, and control to enable the next generation of gravitational wave observatories and to improve the performance of Advanced LIGO.

The primary role for this position is to design and demonstrate the techniques for cooling and controlling silicon optics for LIGO Voyager. Novel work is required to achieve the demanding vibration requirements and improve the controllability of the suspension while removing enough heat to keep the optic at low temperature despite the ~ megawatt of expected incident laser power.

The group is also closely engaged with the seismic isolation challenges for current and future detectors. You should be ready to contribute to control and other optimization of current isolation systems as well as design improvements for isolation and control of future detectors.

We seek candidates with strong experimental backgrounds and familiarity with gravitational wave detectors. A successful candidate is also expected to help guide younger students in the lab, to work closely with the LIGO site operations staff, and work with the LIGO Scientific Collaboration.

This is a 1 year, renewable position.

Please submit your cover letter, CV, and a list of 3 references to Prof. Robert Byer and Dr. Brian Lantz at BLantz@Stanford.edu.

Postdoctoral Scholar, Stanford LIGO Group

(Posted here June 12, 2017)

Position opening for a Postdoctoral Scholar, Stanford LIGO Group

Start date: c. September 2017.

Role and responsibilities
The Stanford LIGO group is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral scholar starting around September 2017 to conduct research on amorphous oxides, which will be used in the mirror coatings of the next generation of LIGO gravitational wave detectors. A new collaborative research program between Stanford University and the University of Florida is leading an effort focussed on a materialsby-design approach to identify new coating material and deposition parameters that form ultrastable glasses. Such coatings will have predicted lower levels of thermal noise that is essential for increasing the sensitivity of LIGO.

The successful applicant would be combining our ongoing work at Stanford on experimental structure measurements of candidate amorphous oxide coatings with the atomic modelling work at Florida. Working in close collaboration with the modelling group at Florida, the successful applicant will develop and perform:
㴹 Coating growth simulations that will determine the optimal material deposition parameters,
㴹 Molecular dynamics (MD) simulations based on experimental structure data,
㴹 Mechanical loss function analysis using MD,
㴹 Density Functional Theory calculations necessary for the project.
In addition, the successful applicant will:
㴹 Assist in coating atomic structure experiments at the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource, as well as use the materials characterization facilities within the Stanford Nano Center and the Stanford Nano-characterization Laboratory.
㴹 Maintain active collaborations within the LIGO Scientific Collaboration
㴹 Disseminate research through publications and attendance at collaboration meetings and national/international conferences.
㴹 Contribute to the education and public outreach efforts of the group, including working with and training undergraduate/graduate students.

Funding for this position will be available for 3-years. Travelling will be required as part of the
collaboration with Florida University.

Qualifications and Experience

Considered applicants must hold a PhD in Physics, Materials Science or related discipline, and have previous experience in quantitative approaches and computational physics. The ideal applicant will have expertise in density functional theory using VASP or CASTEP, and molecular dynamics using LAMMPS. Knowledge and/or interest in X-ray and electron diffraction techniques to study amorphous materials is advantageous. The candidate should enjoy working in a highly collaborative and interdisciplinary environment.

Interested candidates should send their CV to Prof. Martin Fejer, fejer@stanford.edu, Prof. Hai-Ping Cheng hping@ufl.edu and Dr. Riccardo Bassiri, rbassiri@stanford.edu. For more information on the group see: ligo.stanford.edu.

Postdoctoral positions at the Rochester Institute of Technology

The Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation (CCRG) at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) anticipates filling several postdoctoral positions in the coming year. We are looking for postdoctoral candidates in the areas of modeling of gravitational waves sources and their electromagnetic counterparts with numerical relativity, and gravitational wave data analysis for LIGO and its astrophysical interpretation.

In the area of gravitational-wave astronomy, we are particularly interested in candidates who are interested in the data analysis challenges involved in the detection of astrophysical gravitational wave sources; in the parameter estimation of binary compact objects, particularly binary black holes; in tests of general relativity enabled by gravitational wave measurements; and in the opportunities afforded by multimessenger astrophysics.

In the area of computational astrophysics and astrophysical numerical relativity we are particularly interested in candidates who are interested in relativistic magneto-hydrodynamics (GRMHD) simulations of accretion disks around supermassive black hole mergers, and jet dynamics. This work will have direct impact on electromagnetic observations of active galactic nuclei, and is part of an ongoing long-term collaborative research effort with Julian Krolik at Johns Hopkins University, Scott Noble at the University of Tulsa, as well as other collaborators.

In the area of numerical relativity we are interested in a candidate capable of working on the initial data and evolution of binary black holes and neutron stars in the framework of the Einstein-toolkit (ETK) and LazEv? codes. We seek to develop and optimize current RIT's group codes as well as semianalytic efforts to model hybrid waveforms and final remnant formulae for LIGO. The ongoing effort includes several faculty, postdocs, and graduate students, as well as external collaborator Nakano at Kyoto University, and others.

The successful postdoctoral candidates will have the opportunity to collaborate on a broad range of research topics in gravitational physics. Our group is involved in several large collaborations, including the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC), The Einstein Toolkit Consortium (http://einsteintoolkit.org), and a Petascale computing project with NCSA.

There are many senior researchers working in a broad range of areas of gravitational physics and astrophysics at the CCRG. This includes Manuela Campanelli (Director), Sukanya Chakrabarti, Joshua Faber, Carlos Lousto, Richard O'Shaughnessy, Jason Nordhaus, Yosef Zlochower, John Whelan, and Hans-Peter Bischof (a visualization expert), several postdoctoral fellows and Ph.D. students (see http://ccrg.rit.edu/people for an overview on who is or has been at CCRG). The group also collaborates with many faculty, postdocs and graduate students in the larger astrophysics group (http://www.rit.edu/cos/astrophysics/), the school of Mathematical Sciences (http://www.rit.edu/cos/sms/) and the School of Physics and Astronomy (http://www.rit.edu/cos/physics/).

The positions are for two or three years and renewable depending on satisfactory performance and the availability of funds. CCRG researchers have access to several computing cluster facilities at national computing centers such as XSEDE and BlueWaters? as well as a dedicated 1600-core cluster hosted at the Center.

More information about the CCRG is available at http://ccrg.rit.edu/ And about Rochester at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rochester,_New_York

Applications should consist of a cover letter, a brief statement of research interests, a curriculum vitae including publication list, and at least three letters of recommendation. All materials should be sent electronically as soon as possible to: ccrg-postdoc[AT]ccrgweb.rit.edu For an overview of all job openings at CCRG please go to: http://ccrg.rit.edu/spotlight/jobs.
