Postdoctoral position in gravitational wave physics at UIB

The gravity group at the Balearic Islands University (UIB)  [http://www.uib.es/depart/dfs/GRG] is seeking applications for a 2-year postdoctoral position in the areas of gravitational wave physics and astrophysics, including data analysis for current and future gravitational wave detectors, modeling of gravitational-wave sources, numerical relativity, and related astrophysical topics.

Research of the UIB group focuses on studies of gravitational waves from the point of view of data analysis and numerical simulations, cosmology and dark matter. UIB is a member institution of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, the GEO600 project, and our group is part of the IAC3 computational institute. The group consists of faculty members Carles Bona, Jaume Carot, Sascha Husa, Lluis Mas, Joan Masso, Alicia Sintes and Joan Stela, and post-doctoral research fellow Denis Pollney, as well as several graduate students. Two further postdoctoral researchers are expected to arrive in early 2011. The position is available in 2011, the exact starting date being negotiable.

Applicants should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications, brief description of research interests and achievements, as well as arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to gravity.uib.contact[at]gmail.com. Please contact Alicia Sintes (alicia.sintes[at]uib.es) and Sascha Husa (sascha.husa[at]uib.es) or any other group member if you have any questions.

Review of applications will begin on December 15, and applications will be considered until the position is filled. The position is funded by grant FPA2010-16495 of the Spanish ministry for science and innovation, “Data analysis and source modeling for gravitational wave detectors” to Alicia Sintes.
