The Institute for Subatomic Physics at Utrecht University invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in gravitational wave data analysis and phenomenology, covering all aspects of strong-field gravity, with an emphasis on studying gravitational wave signals from coalescing binary neutron stars and black holes. This effort is led by Prof. Dr. C. Van Den Broeck; it currently involves 4 postdocs and 4 PhD students and will grow significantly over the coming year. Apart from collaboration within the Institute for Subatomic Physics, the gravitational waves team of Utrecht University has close ties with researchers at universities and institutes across the Netherlands, which apart from instrumentalists includes astronomers, astrophysicists, and theorists. There is also vibrant collaboration with individuals and groups around the world. The successful candidate will become a member of the Virgo Collaboration and have access to all data from the Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo interferometers.
To apply, please upload your curriculum vitae, including a letter of motivation, using the link provided. Also, please separately arrange for least three references who are willing to send a letter of recommendation on your behalf. The deadline for full consideration is 29 November 2019, but applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
