PhD position in Gravitational Wave Science, Leuven/Brussels, Belgium

The joint Centre for Gravitational Waves at the Institute for Theoretical Physics of KU Leuven and at the University of Brussels (ULB) invites applications for a PhD position in the area of gravitational wave physics.

The Centre for Gravitational Waves ( is an inter-university center of research that stimulates nationwide collaboration on gravitational wave physics and facilitates the Belgian contributions to the development and construction of future gravitational wave observatories.

This year the Centre has an opening for a PhD position in the context of its contributions to LISA, the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna that will measure gravitational waves in space. Target areas of research concern in particular the theory and modelling of gravitational wave patterns and will be performed in close collaboration with members of the LISA Science Group.
Candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. The deadline for full consideration is March 1st, 2020

To apply, interested candidates should submit their application by email to our secretary Anneleen Marcelis (email: anneleen.marcelis[AT] The application package should include your CV, your grades from the bachelor and master program, a letter of motivation which includes a brief description of your research interest (maximum one page), and (at least) two letters from professors (one of whom should be your master thesis supervisor) who are willing to support your application.
