Technical Staff Scientist in Astrophysics, Particle Astrophysics and Cosmology  ‐ Los Alamos National Laboratory

The Nuclear, Particle, Astrophysics, and Cosmology (T‐2) group in the Theoretical Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory is seeking candidates in astrophysics, particle astrophysics, and related areas for the position of Technical Staff Scientist.

Astrophysical topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the physics of collapsed objects (such as supernovae, neutron stars, black holes), plasma astrophysics, planet and star formation, dark matter and dark energy, and cosmological structure formation. Particle astrophysics topics include the physics and astrophysics of dark matter, neutrino astrophysics, and cosmic rays. Candidates who would be able to thrive in, and contribute to, the unique multidisciplinary environment of T-2 are especially encouraged to apply. Los Alamos has strong experimental efforts in the search for physics beyond the Standard Model, neutron and neutrino physics, optical and x‐ray astronomy, and high energy cosmic rays. Building collaborations with these experimental efforts, as well as existing efforts in hydrodynamics, cosmology, and nuclear theory, is highly encouraged.

Interested candidates should submit a CV, a list of publications and invited talks, and at least three letters of recommendation as soon as possible, and no later than Jan. 25, 2010. Applications can be sent electronically (in PDF) to:
pnac‐, or by mail to:
