|Position Summary:|| |
Villanova University’s Department of Astrophysics and Planetary Science invites applications for the Mendel postdoctoral research fellowship. The Mendel fellowship is a flagship postdoctoral opportunity for the candidates seeking to stay in academia. The fellowship provides training and development in all three areas of academic life: research, teaching and service. A successful applicant will join Andrej Prsa’s research team and work on cutting-edge theoretical and observational aspects of binary and multiple stellar populations. In parallel, the applicant will teach an undergraduate core science course/lab to non-STEM majors, where the stress is on incorporating four critical components in a meaningful way: problem solving, laboratory experience, technology and quantitative tools, and interdisciplinary understanding. Finally, the applicant will join the Departmental ecosphere and participate in shaping the future of research and education at Villanova. The Mendel postdoctoral fellowship is a 2-year appointment, with the possibility of extending it for another year.
Villanova is a Catholic university sponsored by the Augustinian order. Diversity and inclusion have been and will continue to be an integral component of Villanova University’s mission.
