Dr. Coral Wheeler received her PhD at the UC Irvine Center for Cosmology and will be joining CalTech as a Burke Theoretical Physics Postdoctoral Fellow. Her research is on the morphology, kinematics, stellar populations, and star formation histories of dwarf and satellite galaxies. Prof. James S. Bullock is the chair of her dissertation committee.
New Scientist magazine features work led by graduate student Ryan Keeley that shows strong tension between dark matter interpretations of the Galactic Center gamma-ray excess and dwarf galaxy limits on dark matter annihilation from the Fermi Gamma Ray Space Telescope.
The University of California, Irvine invites applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher position in theoretical particle physics or astroparticle physics beginning in September 2016. The theoretical particle physics group at UC Irvine has research interests in astroparticle physics, beyond standard model physics, collider physics, cosmology, neutrino physics, and quantum gravity. Faculty members include Kevork Abazajian, Mu-Chun Chen, Jonathan Feng, Herbert Hamber, Manoj Kaplinghat, Arvind Rajaraman, Michael Ratz, Yuri Shirman, and Tim Tait. The group is complemented by large and diverse experimental particle physics and astrophysics groups; see http://theory.physics.uci.edu for additional information.
The successful applicant(s) will have a Ph.D. degree or equivalent; salary will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.
