CITA Postdoctoral Fellowships (Deadline November 15, 2013)

Postdoctoral research fellowships beginning September 1, 2014 are being offered at the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics. A Ph.D. in any field of theoretical astrophysics is required. Fellows are expected to carry out original research in theoretical astrophysics under the general supervision of the permanent faculty whose interests include: cosmology, interstellar matter, galaxy and planet formation, solar physics, high energy astrophysics, numerical relativity and gravitational waves.

We only accept electronic submissions. Visit the CITA website at: www.cita.utoronto.ca for application instructions. Applicants will be asked to submit a curriculum vitae, statement of research interests and arrange for three letters of recommendation. The deadline for applications and all letters of recommendation is November 15, 2013.

The University of Toronto is strongly committed to diversity within its community and especially welcomes applications from visible minority group members, Aboriginal persons, persons with disabilities, members of sexual minority groups, and others who may contribute to the further diversification of ideas.

RESEARCH ASSOCIATE POSITIONS

CITA expects to offer one or more Research Associate positions of three to five years duration. The start date will be September 1, 2014. Applicants should have an excellent research record in astrophysics and postdoctoral experience. Funds will be available for travel and other research expenses. The primary duty is to carry out original research in theoretical astrophysics, but Research Associates are also expected to work with postdoctoral fellows and to assist with the administration of the Institute. All applicants for these positions are also considered automatically for postdoctoral fellowships.

NATIONAL POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS

As part of its mandate to promote research throughout Canada, CITA provides partial support for postdoctoral fellows working in theoretical astrophysics or closely related fields at Canadian universities other than the University of Toronto, through its National Fellows Program.

The responsibility for identifying and nominating potential CITA National Fellows who will work at a given university lies with the faculty at that university. Only faculty at Canadian universities may submit nominations. The deadline for these nominations November 15, 2013 for fellowships to start in September 2014. Please check with the nominating institution for their internal deadlines.

If you are interested in applying for National Fellowships at other universities in Canada, please contact any of the following faculty by email or check department websites for further research and application details:
