OzGrav postdoctoral research fellow in pulsar timing arrays

Swinburne University is currently advertising for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work within the ARC Centre of Excellence in Gravitational wave Discovery (OzGrav) on precision pulsar timing and gravitational-wave detection. This position will contribute to the following OzGrav research objectives: 1) performing observations of radio pulsars using the SKA and its pathfinder telescopes and existing facilities to enable the discovery of gravitational waves and tests of General Relativity, and 2) using the information provided from gravitational wave observations and pulsar surveys to make astrophysical insights into the relativistic universe using N-body simulations and binary evolution codes.
