VESF fellowship for theoretical research on gravitational wave detection

More info:  external link
Location:  TBD

The Virgo Ego Scientific Forum (VESF) is glad to announce the call for applications for one fellowship at postdoctoral level for up to two years, to work on theoretical research relevant to the physics of the Virgo experiment: potentially detectable gravitational wave sources, emitted waveforms, rates, data analysis algorithms and strategies and any other topic of interest for Virgo.

A direct impact on data analysis will be considered as an additional credit in the evaluation of proposed researches. The present call is open to groups that are member of VESF, as well as to individuals. In this latter case, the proposed research must take place at one of the groups which are members of VESF and the application will have to contain a letter of endorsement of the hosting Institution, assuring hospitality as well as logistic and scientific support for the proposed research activity. Applications from individuals are encouraged.

The application forms and the list of eligible groups can be found on the VESF webpage:

Applications should be sent electronically to:

The deadline for submitting applications is January 10th 2010, and the selection will take place by January 30th, 2010. The position should be filled by the end of June 2010 and the extension to a second year will be subject to positive evaluation of the scientific activity by the Executive Board

VESF encourages applications from individuals with disabilities, minorities, and women.
