Post-doctoral position in Gravitational Wave Cosmology at UCLouvain, Belgium

The CURL group (https://curl.irmp.ucl.ac.be) at the IRMP Research Institute in Mathematics and Physics of the Universite’ catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain) in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium) has an opening for a post-doctoral research position in the field of gravitational wave cosmology starting fall 2020.

Applicants with expertises in gravitational wave signatures of early universe physics, stochastic gravitational wave background, cosmic defects, primordial black holes, cosmic inflation, as well as data analysis for current and future gravitational wave interferometers, such as LIGO/Virgo and LISA, are particularly encouraged to apply.

The appointment is available for two years, and could possibly be extended to 3 years depending on mutual satisfaction and available funding.

The position is supported by a joint research program in gravitational wave physics between the CP3 center (https://cp3.phys.ucl.ac.be) and the CURL group (https://curl.irmp.ucl.ac.be) at UCLouvain and the STAR institute (https://www.star.uliege.be) at Universite’ de Liege. Computing resources and support for travelling are excellent.

Letters of application (including a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a brief statement of research interests) and at least two recommendation letters from senior scientists should be submitted on-line, by the 15th of January 2020, at the accompanying URL.
