We invite applications for Postdoctoral Fellowships in space-related fields to be held in the McGill Space Institute at McGill University (http://msi.mcgill.ca/ ).
The MSI is an interdisciplinary, vibrant, and interactive community of researchers working on space-related research at McGill. Currently there are 20 active faculty members affiliated with the centre, from the Physics, Earth and Planetary Sciences, Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, and Natural Resource Sciences departments from McGill (http://msi.mcgill.ca/index.php?page=faculty-staff ).
The successful applicant will have a strong research record in theoretical, observational, or experimental work in astrophysics, planetary science, atmospheric science, astrobiology, or cosmology. Postdoctoral fellows will work under the supervision of one or more faculty members at the MSI. Fellows are expected to spend at least 50 percent of their time on research that complements that of their supervisor.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae including a list of publications, statement of research plans (not to exceed 2 pages) which demonstrates how the proposed research program complements current MSI activities (http://msi.mcgill.ca/index.php?page=research ), and should arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent through AcademicJobsOnline. Optionally, applicants may wish to discuss examples of leadership and/or how they expect to contribute positively to the MSI community in their cover letter. Applicants should indicate that they are applying for the McGill Space Institute Postdoctoral Fellowship and state potential MSI faculty supervisors in their cover letter. Applicants are strongly recommended to contact potential supervisors ahead of time; while not strictly required, most successful candidates in the past have done so.
Applicants in the fields of astrophysics should also consider applying for the following opportunities:
A single application is sufficient to apply for both the MSI fellowship and the McGill Astrophysics Fellowship; the intended fellowships must be clearly indicated in the cover letter. For the CITA National Fellowship and Canada Fellowship, a separate application must be submitted - refer to the job posting for instructions (https://jobregister.aas.org/ad/c0f4b810 , deadline November 13).
This position offers a competitive salary and benefits, and will be for two years with a possible renewal for a third year, contingent on supervisor approval and the availability of funds. Preference is given to applicants within 3 years of the PhD. All application materials, including letters of recommendation, must be received by the deadline of December 3, 2020. McGill University and the McGill Space Institute are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion within the community. We welcome applications from: women, indigenous persons, persons with disabilities, ethnic minorities, persons of minority sexual orientation or gender identity, visible minorities, and others who may contribute to diversification.
Postdoctoral researchers at McGill enjoy a comprehensive benefits package, seehttp://www.mcgill.ca/gps/postdocs/fellows/healthcare .
