In particular, candidates interested in working with the All-Sky Automated Survey for Supernovae (ASAS-SN) are encouraged to apply.

Applicants must have a PhD in astronomy or a related field by the start date of the appointment. Experience in observational astronomy is preferred, but this position would also be appropriate for a theorist. The appointment will begin in Fall 2017, but the starting date is negotiable. Appointment is initially for one year and extendable for up to three years. The position includes competitive research budget and opportunity for independent research.
