Deadline:  2021-01-31

Location:  Stockholm, Sweden

The Department of Astronomy at Stockholm University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow in core-collapse supernova theory and computational astrophysics to work within the group of Dr. Evan O’Connor. The project aims at the development and execution of state-of-the-art computational tools for simulating core-collapse supernovae, with a particular focus on black hole formation and the multi-messenger signals produced from these extreme environments.

Experience in numerical techniques including relativity, hydrodynamics, and radiation transport are considered strong assets to carry out the project. The position also offers the possibility to interact with other research groups at the department, both theoretical and observational, as well as within the Oskar Klein Centre.

Postdoctoral positions are appointed primarily for purposes of research. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country. The degree should have been completed no more than three years before the deadline for applications. An older degree may be acceptable under special circumstances, which may involve sick leave, parental leave, clinical attachment, elected positions in trade unions, or similar.
