Attention: Arlin Crotts, Professor

We seek a Postdoctoral Scientist to conduct research into the variable star population and microlensing event rate in external galaxies. The work will include analysis of data from a wide-field CCD survey of M31, covering most of the stars in that galaxy. Data are being obtained at several observatories, including MDM Observatory, of which Columbia controls a 25% share. The successful applicant will have access to MDM for this and other projects, and will be free to devote 50% of his/her time to individual research including unrelated topics. Duties will include observing and pipeline data reductions as well as analysis and interpretation. This position is available for one year with the possible extension to up to three years, starting in mid-to-late 2000. Applicants should provide a curriculum vitae, summary of research, and three letters of reference by March 31, 2000 to the address above, although consideration of applications will begin immediately. Further information can be found at the website Columbia University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer; women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
