Bartol Research Institute, Department of Physics and Astronomy, University of Delaware, Newark, DE 19716 USA

I am looking for a post-doc (or "research scientist") to work with me on developing models of instabilities and mass loss for massive stars near and above the Eddington limit, and/or to test such models against observations of LBV stars. The position is supported by a combination of NSF and NASA grants, and could last for up to 3 years.
