PhD positions in neutron star physics, Warsaw, Poland
A number PhD scholarships are available at the Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center in Warsaw, Poland. Two projects are available in the neutron star group: on superfluid neutron stars (under the supervision of Dr Brynmor Haskell) and on observational constraints on dense matter theory (under the supervision of Prof Leszek Zdunik).
The Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center is one of the leading astronomical institutes in Poland, and the neutron star group is involved in cutting edge research on the equation of state of dense matter, neutron star superfluidity, gravitational wave detection and pulsar glitches.The neutron star group is currently composed of 4 staff members (Pawel Haensel, Leszek Zdunik, Michal Bejger and Brynmor Haskell), 2 postdocs and 2 students.
Warsaw is a vibrant European capital, rich in history and culture, and well connected to other European and international destinations by rail, road and air.
A detailed description of the projects, together with instructions to apply, can be found on the website: https://www.camk.edu.pl/en/phd/
Applications must be received by the Nicolaus Copernicus Institute before March 19th 2017. Applicants are, however, encouraged to contact potential supervisors well in advance, to discuss potential projects.
