Deadline:  2017-11-30

Location:  Shanghai, China

The high energy astrophysics group at Fudan University (Shanghai, China) has a few PhD positions for the next academic year (starting in September 2018). The successful candidates must have a Master degree in Physics or in a related area before September 2018. Courses and research are conducted in English. The PhD program normally lasts for 3 years, but it can be extended to 4-5 years.

We are particularly interested in candidates with interest/experience in:
1) X-ray data analysis of black holes (in particular for spin measurements)
2) Astrophysical codes (fortran, C/C++, python)
We will also consider applications from candidates interested in other lines of research in high energy astrophysics, as well as from candidates interested in theoretical aspects of general relativity and alternative theories of gravity.

The group is led by Prof. Cosimo Bambi and currently consists of 2 postdoctoral researchers and several graduate and undergraduate students. More details on the possible projects can be found on the group webpage.

Interested candidates should send their CV (including, among other things, date of birth and nationality) and a short statement of research interests and/or experience to:

Prof. Cosimo Bambi
E-mail: bambi[AT]

Please arrange also at least 2 recommendation letters to be sent separately to the same email address.

Applications received by November 30 will receive full consideration.
