The UMass Dept. of Astronomy has a duplicate set of back 
issues of ApJ (1964-1998) and AJ (1975-1998).  Does anybody 
want them for the price of shipping?

Postdoctoral Research Position in Submillimeter Astronomy

HARVARD-SMITHSONIAN CENTER FOR ASTROPHYSICS

    Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research 
position working with the AST/RO (Antarctic Submillimeter 
Telescope and Remote Observatory) group at the Harvard-
Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.  AST/RO operates a 1.7-
meter diameter submillimeter-wave telescope at the South 
Pole, engaged in spectroscopic observations of atomic and 
molecular species in the Milky Way and other galaxies.  The 
South Pole provides a uniquely transparent site for 
submillimeter-wave studies of the interstellar medium.

    The successful applicant will collaborate on reduction, 
analysis, interpretation, and publication of AST/RO spectral 
line mapping data and may also propose independent research 
projects using AST/RO facilities. The telescope is currently 
equipped with helium-cooled SIS receivers for observation of 
the following lines:  [CI] at 492 GHz and 809 GHz, CO (J=4-
3) at 460 GHz, CO (J=7-6) at 807 GHz, and CO (J=2-1) at 230 
GHz. Two new array receivers at high frequencies will be 
installed in late 2000, providing significantly expanded 
capabilities. More information about the AST/RO project can 
be found at our Web site (http://cfa-
www.harvard.edu/~adair/AST_RO).

    Candidates must hold a Ph.D degree and should have 
expertise related to observational and/or theoretical 
studies of the interstellar medium in galaxies.  The initial 
appointment will be for one year and may begin as soon as a 
suitable candidate is found.  The position is renewable for 
a second year, and possibly longer, depending on performance 
and the availability of grant funding.  The current 
postdoctoral stipend at CfA is $42,000 per year.  Applicants 
should send a curriculum vita, publication list, statement 
of research experience and accomplishments, and arrange for 
three letters of recommendation to be sent to: Dr. Adair P. 
Lane, AST/RO Project Manager, SAO, 60 Garden St., MS-78, 
Cambridge, MA 02138. Applications may also be sent by email 
to adaircfa.harvard.edu. Consideration of completed 
applications will begin during the month of September.  
Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
