PhD opportunities at GRIT, Lisbon, Portugal

The gravity group (GRIT) at Instituto Superior Tecnico Lisbon invites applications for a PhD fellowship starting fall 2021. The fellowship will run for four years, with a taught component in the first year and full-time research thereafter. An ample travel budget is available.

The topic of the thesis will, very broadly, be on the field of gravitational collapse and numerical relativity. Informal queries can be sent to David Hilditch (david.hilditch[AT]

Applicants should send their CV, transcripts, and a one page letter of motivation to the same address. They should also arrange for at least one letter of recommendation to be sent, and all materials to be delivered by the end of April 2021. Brief interviews will be made with GRIT members after an initial shortlist is formed.

Strong applicants may also opt to be placed in a pool for other upcoming PhD opportunities at GRIT. Information about both the team and the broader CENTRA research unit to which GRIT belongs can be found at the link attached to this advertisement.
