The Department of Physics in The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences invites applications for a full-time, benefits-eligible Postdoctoral Research Scholar position beginning in Fall 2024. This is a fixed-term, fiscal year (twelve month) appointment with no tenure implications, but with the possibility of extension annually based on satisfactory performance and funding availability. Candidates must be within five years from receipt of their doctoral degree.

The neutrino physics and astrophysics group led by Prof. Lunardini at ASU is seeking to hire a postdoctoral research associate. The successful candidate will conduct theoretical research on the production, propagation and detection of neutrinos from astrophysical sources, with possible connections with multi-messenger astronomy phenomena involving photons, cosmic rays, and gravitational waves. The fellow will actively participate in the activities of prof. Lunardini’s group, and will contribute to the dissemination of research results and to the mentoring of graduate and undergraduate students.


Minimum Qualifications:

  • A Ph.D. or an equivalent degree in physics, astrophysics or a related discipline by the time of the appointment. Candidates must be within five years from receipt of their doctoral degree.
  • Evidence of effectively communicating research through conference presentations and/or journal papers.
  • Commitment to working with diverse faculty, staff, students, and communities, and to advancing the ASU Charter.

Desired Qualifications:

  • Expertise in the theory of supernova neutrinos
  • Expertise in the theory of high energy astrophysical (extragalactic) neutrinos
  • Expertise in the physics of messengers other than neutrinos, such as gravitational waves or cosmic rays
  • Experience with numerical programming
  • Strong scientific writing skills
