We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher with expertise in general relativity and data analysis. As a postdoctoral researcher you will join the Strong Gravity group of B. Bonga and work on modelling tidal resonances. These resonances were co-discovered by Bonga and are critical to model accurately in extreme mass ratio inspirals (EMRIs) if we want to maximise the scientific output of LISA. You will complement the theoretical expertise in the group by bringing your expertise in (gravitational wave) data analysis. Ideally, you already have some experience with the data analysis tools relevant for LISA.
You are expected to closely collaborate with Bonga and students in her group. In addition, you should be open to interact with Radboud University’s data analysis experts on gravitational waves (B. Krishnan and G. Nelemans) and particle physics (S. Caron). The goal is to improve current models for tidal resonances, create efficient and accurate waveform models and develop data analysis tools to identify tidal resonances in mock data and extract the relevant parameters.
For more information about the position and how to apply, see https://www.ru.nl/en/working-at/job-opportunities/postdoctoral-researcher-in-general-relativity-and-data-analysis. The ideal starting date for this position is January 2023. However, if this does not suit your timeline, please apply nonetheless and clearly indicate your constraints.
The deadline for applications is *6 November 2022*. Feel free to email bbonga[AT]science.ru.nl if you have any questions regarding this position.
