Deadline:  2016-12-01

Location:  Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Research in the gravity group at the Balearic Islands University (UIB) spans a wide range of topics from gravitational wave data analysis and numerical relativity to mathematical relativity.

For this call we are seeking applications for a postdoctoral position to work with PIs Alicia Sintes and Sascha Husa in the areas of gravitational wave physics, including data analysis, modelling of gravitational-wave sources, numerical relativity, and related topics in astrophysics, cosmology and fundamental physics. The successful
candidate will also be expected to strengthen our involvement in the LIGO Scientific Collaboration. Our LIGO group also includes postdoctoral researcher Geraint Pratten, 5 PhD students, several master and undergraduate students, and we expect to be joined by another postdoc in early 2017.

Further faculty members in the UIB gravity include Carles Bona, Jaume Carot, Joan Massó and Carlos Palenzuela.

Please address enquiries about the open positions to Alicia Sintes
(alicia.sintes[AT] and Sascha Husa (sascha.husa[AT]

Nominal starting date of the position is in the fall of 2017, but an earlier starting date is possible. Initial appointment will be for 1 year, with renewal for a second year expected, depending on satisfactory progress. 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[AT]

Review of applications for the two funded positions will begin on December 1, and applications will be considered until the position is filled.
