The Departments of Physics and Astronomy at Stockholm University are situated at AlbaNova in Stockholm, providing a vibrant international research environment. We are part of the Oskar Klein Centre, containing world-class research groups in cosmology and time domain astronomy, http://www.okc.albanova.se/. A strong research environment has recently been established that focuses on the study of the electromagnetic signals from mergers of compact objects, G.R.E.A.T., https://www.great.cosmoparticle.com. Within this initiative, we are currently searching for several qualified Postdoctoral Fellows, in particular in the area of Modelling (two positions) and Observations (two positions) of gravitational + electromagnetic wave sources.
Two Postdoctoral openings will be available for outstanding individuals to work on the multi-messenger aspects of sources that produce both gravitational and electromagnetic waves. We search in particular for expertise in relativistic (magneto-)hydrodynamics, nucleosynthesis, neutrino transport and/or radiative transfer to work with Prof. Stephan Rosswog.
Up to two Postdoc positions will be open for researchers working on observational aspects of transients. Within GREAT, GROWTH and ENGRAVE we focus on preparations and follow-up of optical counterparts to GW sources. Within ZTF and ePESSTO we also have resources to study other kinds of transients, such as supernovae.
