Postdoctoral position in neutron star physics, Warsaw, Poland

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center (CAMK PAN) in Warsaw, Poland, with a preferred, start in the summer or fall of 2020.
The successful applicant will collaborate with the group of Dr Brynmor Haskell on numerical implementation of dissipative processes in general relativistic models of neutron stars.
The position is available for two years with a possibility to extend of another one and will be funded from a Polish National Science Centre OPUS research grant (2019/33/B/ST9/00942). Funding for travel and research equipment will also be provided.

CAMK is one of the leading astronomical institutes in Poland and current research at the institute encompasses a broad range of both observational and theoretical subjects in modern astrophysics. CAMK scientists participate in many international projects, e.g. H.E.S.S., CTA, Fermi, Herschel, Virgo, LIGO, SALT, Gaia-ESO, ATHENA.

Candidates are required to have completed a PhD in astronomy, physics or a related discipline before the start date and no earlier than in 2014. Applicants should have a strong background in general relativity, computational physics or astrophysics. Experience with numerical relativity simulations will be an advantage but are not essential. Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Dr Brynmor Haskell (bhaskel[AT]camk.edu.pl) to discuss the project further.

Applications (in pdf format) can be sent to recruitment[AT]camk.edu.pl and should include a copy of the applicant’s PhD diploma, a curriculum vitae with a list of publications and a brief statement of research interests and plans (2 pages). Applicants should also arrange for at least two letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address, and send a scan of signed GDPD form (available from https://www.camk.edu.pl/media/uploads_current/o_instytucie/rodo/ncn/ rodo_deklaracja_ncn_ang.pdf).

For full consideration applications should be received by February 14th, 2020.
