Apply online at: https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/6531

This fellowship is made possible in part by the endowment of the Lorne Trottier Chair in Astrophysics and Cosmology at McGill.

The McGill Astrophysics group currently includes twelve active faculty members. Research in our group covers theory, observations, and instrumentation, in cosmology, CMB, large scale structure, galaxy clusters, galaxy formation and evolution, active galactic nuclei, gravitational lensing, high energy astrophysics, including ground-based gamma ray astronomy, the physics of compact objects, including multiwavelength observations of magnetars, radio pulsars and accreting neutron stars, nuclear astrophysics, and exoplanets. Further information on these research areas can be found at http://www.astro.physics.mcgill.ca/.

We also have strong ties to the early universe cosmology/high energy theory group. Members of the Astro group are also part of the McGill Space Institute (MSI), a new research centre at McGill University that brings together different areas of space related research across the University.

The successful applicant will have a strong research record in theoretical, observational, or experimental astrophysics. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, list of publications, statement of research interests not to exceed 2 pages, and contact details of 3 referees.
