The University of Toronto invites applications for Dunlap Postdoctoral Fellowships within the Dunlap Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics. This growing unit pursues ground-breaking astronomical research across the electromagnetic spectrum, through innovative approaches to hardware, software, and observations. Dunlap Fellows are expected to drive original research independently or in collaboration with others at the University. They have access to design and fabrication facilities and can propose for additional support of their experimental or computational plans. Dunlap Fellows are strongly encouraged to participate in the Institute's outreach and education initiatives. Training and mentoring in this area are available. The range of activities and opportunities in research, outreach, and education can be seen in the annual reports on the institute’s website. Exceptional candidates in instrumentation, software, observations, computation, or experimentally-related theoretical topics are encouraged to apply.
Appointments are initially for two years, with expectation of renewal for a third year subject to satisfactory performance. Dunlap Fellowships include a competitive annual stipend and benefits, with funds for research, travel expenses and relocation, plus the opportunity to request additional research funds from the Dunlap Institute. The Dunlap Institute supports a flexible, equitable and diverse workplace: applications from women, minorities and potential two-body hires are especially encouraged.
The approximate expected starting date is 1 September 2015. Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, bibliography, and statement of research interests, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent to the above address by 15 December 2014.
