We are seeking for outstanding, highly motivated candidate for the PhD position in neutron star physics and neutron star merger simulations.
The focus of the PhD project is the study of the impact of dark matter on properties of neutron stars, and their merger dynamics in binary system. The main emphasis will be given to numerical-relativity simulations of the coalescence of binary systems consisting of dark matter admixed neutron stars and on searches for the signatures of dark matter in the interior of compact stars.
Its a joint scholarship between the University of Coimbra (Portugal) and the University of Potsdam (Germany) supervised by Prof. Constanca Providencia, Dr. Violetta Sagun (Coimbra) and Prof. Tim Dietrich (Potsdam).
An application should include a curriculum vitae, a motivation letter, certificates of all the obtained academic degrees, other documents that the candidate may consider relevant (diplomas, certificates etc..) and up to three contacts for reference letters.
Candidates should hold either a pre-Bologna degree, or a pre-/post-Bologna Master’s degree at the time of application.
Foreign degrees/diplomas are required to be recognized by the General Directorate of Higher Education or by a Portuguese higher education institution: https://www.dges.gov.pt/en/pagina/degree-and-diploma-recognition?plid=1536
Deadline for the application: 30th of November 2020, 17:00 (Lisbon time). Applicants are encouraged to contact Dr. Violetta Sagun (violetta.sagun[AT]uc.pt) well in advance, to discuss the project and application procedure.
