Within the Oskar Klein Centre for Cosmoparticle Physics at Stockholm University 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., see www.great.cosmoparticle.com.
Within the G.R.E.A.T. research environment we study the electromagnetic signals from mergers of compact objects, both from a theoretical and an observational perspective. This research environment benefits from very close connections between Physics and Astronomy, between scientist working on theoretical, computational and observational aspects and access to data (e.g. ZTF, ENGRAVE). Within the G.R.E.A.T. initiative, we are currently searching for Postdoctoral Fellows working on multi-messenger astrophysics. Particular attention will be payed to the area of theory/modelling (up to three positions) of gravitational + electromagnetic wave sources.
Postdoctoral openings will be available for outstanding individuals to work on the multi-messenger aspects of sources that produce both gravitational and electromagnetic waves. Expertise in any relevant multi-messenger aspect are of interest, expertise in relativistic (magneto-)hydrodynamics, nucleosynthesis and/or radiative transfer is particularly welcome. Postdoctoral associates are welcome to participate in Scientific Programs at Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics, which bring together groups of leading experts to work on specific topics for extended periods. The postdoctoral associates will also have access to research and travel funds, excellent benefits as well as computing facilities.
Closing date for the application is May 31, 2019, but application reviewing will start as soon as applications come in, therefore early applications are encouraged.
