(Lucianne Walkowicz) #1

We invite applications for a postdoctoral scholar to join the leadership of the newly-established LSST Data Science Fellowship Program. The LSST Data Science Fellowship Program is a series of survey-science-focused schools, designed to supplement graduate curricula with the skills researchers will need to make best use of LSST data. The postdoctoral scholar will divide their time equally between conducting a competitive research program of their own choosing involving data science in astronomy/astrophysics, and developing this new LSST-focused educational initiative. The position is formally located at CIERA/Northwestern, but the postdoctoral scholar will also spend time working with the LSST DSFP Director Lucianne Walkowicz at the Adler Planetarium (also in Chicago). Application deadline is 1/15/2016: http://jobregister.aas.org/job_view?JobID=53053
