Deadline:  2021-01-15

Location:  Stockholm, Sweden

Within the Oskar Klein Centre for Cosmoparticle Physics a strong research environment has been established that focuses on the theoretical and observational study of multi-messenger signals from major gravitational wave sources. This research environment benefits from very close connections between Physics and Astronomy, between scientist working on theoretical, computational and observational aspects and from access to observational data (e.g. ZTF, ENGRAVE). Within the new project “Gravity meets Light”, funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, we are searching for a highly qualified postdoctoral researcher to work on theoretical/computational Multi-Messenger Astrophysics.

A postdoctoral opening will be available for an outstanding individual 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. Postdoctoral associates are welcome to participate in Scientific Programs at Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics, which bring together groups of leading experts to work on specific topics for extended periods. The postdoctoral associate will also have access to research and travel funds, excellent benefits as well as computing facilities.
