The Institute for Gravitational Wave Astronomy at the University of Birmingham,
UK, invites applications for postdoctoral positions.
The Institute provides a vibrant and diverse environment with expertise covering
theoretical and experimental gravitational-wave research, with applications to
present and future-generation detectors, theoretical astrophysics, transient
astronomy, gravitational-wave source modeling, and general relativity theory.
Applications from top researchers in all areas related to gravitational-wave and
transient astronomy are encouraged.
Institute faculty members include Andreas Freise, Davide Gerosa, Denis Martynov,
Haixing Miao, Christopher Moore, Conor Mow-Lowry, Matt Nicholl, Patricia
Schmidt, Silvia Toonen, and Alberto Vecchio.
One postdoctoral appointment is funded by the UK Leverhulme Trust (PI Dr. Davide
Gerosa) and is focused on developing astrophysical and statistical predictions
for the LISA space mission. The successful candidate will have ample
opportunities to explore other areas of gravitational-wave astronomy as well.
Appointments will be for a three-year term starting in the Fall of 2020 and come
with generous research and travel budget.
Applications should include a CV with a list of publications, and a two-page
statement covering research interests and plans. Complete applications should be
received by 27 January 2020 for full consideration. Applications should be sent
to Ms. Joanne Cox at: j.s.cox at bham.ac.uk.
Applicants should also arrange for 3 reference letters to be sent by 27 January
2020 to the same email address.
For further information and informal inquiries please contact Dr. Davide Gerosa
(firstname.lastname@example.org) and Prof. Alberto Vecchio (email@example.com).
