The Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for the position of Morrison Postdoctoral Fellow in Astronomy. For this year’s Morrison Fellowship we are specifically targeting exoplanetary science.
UCSC is the home of the University of California Observatories (UCO), with facilities including the Lick and Keck Observatories and Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) International Observatory. It is also one of the world’s leading centers for research in computational astrophysics. The 3000-core Hyades cluster is the on-campus centerpiece of UCSC computational astrophysics. Close collaborations exist between Astronomy & Astrophysics, Physics, Earth & Planetary Sciences, and Applied Mathematics & Statistics.
Applicants should be able to contribute to the Department of Astronomy and Astrophysics in exoplanetary science investigations that are either observational or theoretical in nature.
