Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the field of gravitational waves and numerical relativity at the University of Jena. The position is associated with the research group of Prof. Sebastiano Bernuzzi at the Theoretical Physics Institute Jena and funded by ERC-StG grant “BinGraSp”. The project is about modeling binary neutron star coalescence in general relativity, including gravitational waveform modeling, computational aspects in numerical relativity, and gravitational-wave data-analysis applications. The successful candidate has the opportunity to join the Virgo Collaboration and participate to the LIGO-Virgo gravitational-wave astronomy programme.
The appointment will be initially for one year with possible extension to the end of the project. Candidates with experience in analytical and numerical relativity, gravitational-wave modeling and data analysis, computational physics are particularly encouraged to apply.
Please submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae with a list of publications, a brief description of research interests, and a list of three potential referees, who may be contacted separately.
Applications should be received by February 1st, 2019, but will be considered until the positions are filled. Starting date is expected in August/September 2019.
