The University of Rochester Department of Physics and Astronomy invites applications for honorary Robert E. Marshak Postdoctoral Fellowship and Scientist positions in Physics.
Fellowships were established in 2004 to honor
Prof. Robert E. Marshak to offer young scientists
the opportunity to pursue innovative research at the
University Rochester in the fields of Particle and Nuclear physics.
In 2006, the scope of the Marshak
Fellowship Committee has been expanded
to select Marshak
Fellows and Scientist in the fields of (1) Particle
Physics, (2) Plasma
and (3) Plasma
Physics and Controlled Fusion. A
fundraising drive for honorary fellowship and scientist positions
in other subfields
of physics is anticipated.
Fellows and Scientists will receive, in addition to full salary support, a supplemental stipend of $2500 per year as well as a research expense fund of at least $2000 per annum to be used at their discretion.
It is expected that this research will require the
support of one of the established groups in theoretical or
Astrophysics, or Plasma
Physics and Controlled Fusion at Rochester . Accordingly,
applicants for these
strongly encouraged to contact potential research advisors in these
fields at Rochester
in advance of submitting their application. Current postdoctoral
with which these honorary Postdoctoral Fellowship and Scientist
positions may be associated
are often posted on
the Physics and Astronomy Department web site , on the Laboratory
for Laser Energetics web site, and on the University of Rochester
Fusion Science Center web site.
Applicants should provide a curriculum vitae, bibliography of publications, preprints of manuscripts not yet published, an indication of the group with which the candidate would most likely be associated, and a description of the anticipated research program. In addition, the applicant should arrange for at least three letters of recommendation to be sent to the committee. Application material should be mailed to
Marshak Postoctoral Fellowship and Scientist CommitteeApplications will be considered on a rolling basis as they are received. Fellowship candidates will automatically be considered for other available postdoctoral positions in their fields of interest. In addition to research grants, funding for Marshak Fellowship and Scienetist positions is provided by the University of Rochester Department of Physics and Astronomy Marshak Fund, the University of Rochester Laboratory for Laser Energetics, and the University of Rochester Fusion Science Center.
