We invite applications for a postdoctoral position working with Professor Mark Krumholz's research group at the Australian National University. We welcome applicants working in theory and simulation related to the interstellar medium, galaxy formation and evolution, star formation, or related fields.

This position is for up to five years. Successful candidates will have access to both the school's 20-GPU, 1200-core cluster and to the group's large allocations on the National Computational Infrastructure and the Pawsey Supercomputer Centre, and will have approximately 30% of their time available to work on research projects of their choice. Starting dates are flexible, but ideally the successful applicant will be available by mid-2024.

Starting salary is AU$99,083 / year plus generous benefits such as a 17% superannuation (retirement fund) contribution. Including this contribution, the salary is AU$115,927 / year.

Applicants should submit a CV (including publication list), a statement of research interests and experience no longer than three pages (excluding references), and the names and contact details of three referees. The application process closes on 22 December 2022 at 5pm Australian Eastern time.
