Within the Oskar Klein Centre for Cosmoparticle Physics 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).
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.
Closing date for the application is January 15, 2020, but application reviewing will start as soon as applications come in, therefore early applications are encouraged.
