Deadline:  2019-12-15

Location:  Thessaloniki, Greece

Applications are invited for one postdoctoral and one (possibly two) PhD positions in the Physics Department at the University of Thessaloniki, Greece, starting at the beginning of 2020, or soon thereafter by mutual agreement. The duration of the posts is up to three years and the research area is Relativistic Cosmology and the Large-Scale Structure of the Universe. The selected candidates will study the origin, the evolution and the implications of the large-scale peculiar velocity fields seen in the Universe.

All posts will be officially located at the University of Thessaloniki, but the research project runs in collaboration with the Physics Departments at the University of Oxford (UK) and the University of Ioannina (Greece). Generous funding for travel and expenses is also provided.

Applicants must have a solid background in Theoretical Cosmology and General Relativity. Additional expertise on numerical methods is desirable, but not essential. The selected postdoctoral candidate will also have the opportunity to guide junior fellows, teach courses at the MSc level, participate in outreach activities and organise international meetings.

Applications, including a full CV and a statement of research background and interests, should be sent to Prof. Christos Tsagas at: tsagas[AT], by December 15, 2019. The applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to arrive at the same address.
