Deadline:  2022-11-15

Location:  Lisbon, Portugal

The Gravity Group at Tecnico (GRIT), part of the Center for Astrophysics and Gravitation in Tecnico, Lisbon, invites applications for a postdoctoral position in Numerical Relativity. The appointment is for three years, and can be extended to include a dual appointment with the Niels Bohr Institute.

This position is part of the Advanced ERC Grant “Gravitas”, which addresses the physics of black holes. We are looking for exceptional candidates with an outstanding CV, research plan and performance associated with strong-gravity research. The successful applicant will benefit from a generous support package for these Fellows, which may include, besides travel and equipment, also funding for the hiring of a PhD student for the duration of the grant.

Candidates should have a PhD in Numerical Relativity. The application should comprise a 4-page CV, a full list of publications, a two-page research plan and three letters of reference, to be sent to


before November 15, 2022 for full consideration, but the search will remain open until the optimal candidate is found.

The GRIT group is the largest group in the country working on gravitational physics, and has close ties to the Niels Bohr Institute. The applicant is expected to contribute to the efforts of the group and to the training of students.

The University of Lisbon wishes to reflect the diversity of society and welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.
