We seek highly motivated individuals who will develop research programs at the interface between strong-field gravity, black hole physics and gravitational-wave physics. We seek to explore black holes as engines of discovery, including black hole spectroscopy, the nature of spacetime singularities and compact objects, and possible connections between strong-field gravity and dark matter physics.

Applications will have to be submitted here,

before November 10th, 2021 for full consideration, but the search will remain open until the optimal candidate is found.

The Niels Bohr International Academy is hosted by the Niels Bohr Institute and functions as a primary center for fundamental research, including theoretical and computational astrophysics, cosmology, high-energy particle physics, condensed matter physics, and bio-physics. The Academy hosts a large number of international programs, including visitors, workshops, and PhD schools.
