The gravitational wave group at the University of Birmingham has an opening for a fully funded PhD student in gravitational wave astrophysics starting Autumn 2015.
The Birmingham Astrophysics and Space Research group are active in the full range of gravitational wave science, from ground-based advanced detectors to pulsar timing arrays. Our research covers instrumental science, data analysis and astrophysics of gravitational wave sources. The group has expanded in recent years and now has 6 faculty, 2 research fellows, 5 postdocs and 13 PhD students.
We are seeking an excellent student for a PhD project in the data analysis and astrophysical interpretation of gravitational waves from coalescence of compact binaries (black holes and neutron stars).
This position has funding for full-time research for 3.5 years, including full coverage of tuition fees for students of any nationality plus an annual stipend.
