Postdoctoral position in Relativistic Theoretical Astrophysics at UIB, Spain

The gravity group at the Balearic Islands University (UIB) invites applications for a postdoctoral position in Relativistic Theoretical Astrophysics.

Candidates should have a PhD in astrophysics or physics. Candidates with research experience with simulations in numerical relativity, relativistic hydrodynamics and MHD are particularly encouraged to apply.

The successful applicant will work with the PIs Carlos Palenzuela and Joan Masso, in collaboration with Carles Bona, on different subjects related to the modeling of sources of gravitational waves like neutron stars and black holes. Further faculty members in the UIB gravity include Alicia Sintes, Sasha Husa, Carles Bona-Casas, Joan Stela and Jaume Carot. Additionally, the relativity group will have three postdoctoral researchers and 6 PhD students. The group also has a research programmer.

Nominal starting date of the position is Fall of 2017, but an earlier starting date might be possible. The 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 arranging for three letters of recommendation to be sent to Carlos Palenzuela ( carlos.palenzuela[AT]uib.es ). Please address inquiries about the position to the same email.

Review of applications will begin on December 15, but the search will remain open until the position is filled.
