Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position
in the Center for High Angular Resolution Astronomy (CHARA) and
Department of Physics and Astronomy at Georgia State University.
The successful applicant will work with Dr. Douglas Gies
and collaborators on observational and computational studies of
massive stars. Current projects include spectroscopic and
interferometric studies of massive binaries, Be stars, and
rapidly rotating stars. Observational and/or computational
experience in these areas would be useful. CHARA operates the
CHARA Array, an optical/IR interferometer consisting of six
1.0-m telescopes, located at Mount Wilson, California.
We expect the appointee will work at Mount Wilson most of
the time and will partially support the research effort there.
The initial appointment is for one year, renewable
to a total of three years. Curriculum vitae, a bibliography,
a one-page summary of research interests, and names of
three references (plus contact information) should be sent to
Professor Gies at the above address.
The deadline for receipt of these materials is 31 January 2007.
Deadline: 31 January 2007
