As part of several NASA and NSF collaborative projects, RIT’s Center for 
Computational Relativity and Gravitation (CCRG) is currently seeking to 
fill one or two postdoctoral research positions with highly qualified 
individuals interested  in pursuing research in the fields of numerical 
relativity, theoretical and computational astrophysics, with an emphasis 
on general relativistic magneto-hydrodynamics simulations.

We are particularly interested in developing new high-performance 
algorithms for relativistic magneto-hydrodynamics simulations of binary 
neutron star coalescences from prior to merger through to the formation 
of disks and/or collapse of  the merged remnant, the production of jets, 
and launching of outflows. The group is involved in several large 
collaborations, including the LIGO Scientific Collaboration (LSC), The 
Einstein Toolkit Consortium (einsteintoolkit.org) and a   NASA 
Theoretical and Computational Astrophysics Network (TCAN) 
(compact-binaries.org). CCRG researchers have access to several 
computing cluster facilities at national computing centers such as XSEDE 
and the TACC’s Frontera Supercomputer, as well as a dedicated over 
3500-cores cluster and large storage pool hosted at the Center.

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: qxysma[AT]rit.edu with a copy to 
ccrg-postdoc[AT]ccrg.rit.edu. More information about the CCRG is 
available at http://ccrg.rit.edu/. And about Rochester at 

Application reviews will be begin immediately and continue until the 
position is filled. Starting dates, duration and a competitive salary 
are negotiable.
