The high-energy astrophysics group at McGill University is seeking applications for a research associate position in ground-based gamma-ray astronomy. We are members of the VERITAS collaboration, which operates an array of four 12-metre air-Cherenkov telescopes near Tucson, Arizona. These are used to carry out observations of astrophysical sources in the energy range above 100 GeV. The McGill team comprises two faculty members, two post-doctoral fellows and several graduate students.
We seek an individual with experience in ground-based gamma-ray astronomy with an emphasis on data analysis and simulations. An ideal candidate would be familiar with the Corsika air-shower package as well as ROOT and Geant4. Experience working with students is an asset.
The position is initially for two years with an opportunity for extension. The successful candidate will be based in Montreal and will be expected to travel to Arizona periodically. Salary will be commensurate with experience.
Please send a CV and the names and addresses of three referees to:
Professor D. Hanna
Physics Department, McGill University
3600 University Street
Montreal, QC, H3A 2T8, Canada
The deadline for applications is July 31, 2008.
All qualified candidates are encouraged to apply; however, Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada will be given priority. McGill University is committed to equity in employment.
