The Institute for Subatomic Physics at Utrecht University invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in gravitational wave data analysis and phenomenology, covering all aspects of strong-field gravity, with an emphasis on studying gravitational wave signals from coalescing binary neutron stars and black holes. This effort is led by Prof. Dr. C. Van Den Broeck; it currently involves 4 postdocs and 4 PhD students and will grow significantly over the coming year. Apart from collaboration within the Institute for Subatomic Physics, the gravitational waves team of Utrecht University has close ties with researchers at universities and institutes across the Netherlands, which apart from instrumentalists includes astronomers, astrophysicists, and theorists. There is also vibrant collaboration with individuals and groups around the world. The successful candidate will be a member of the Virgo Collaboration, through the Nikhef consortium.

The position is initially for two years, and can be extended with an additional year. To apply, please send your curriculum vitae (including three names and contact details of referees who may be approached by the selection committee) and a letter of motivation via the the following link:

The deadline for full consideration is 29 November 2019, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled. For more information, please contact Prof. Dr. C. Van Den Broeck (
