The Institute for Gravitational and Subatomic Physics (GRASP) at Utrecht University is looking for a highly motivated postdoctoral researcher in gravitational wave data analysis and phenomenology, who is interested in studying gravitational wave signals from coalescing binary neutron stars and black holes as probes of fundamental physics.
At GRASP this effort is led by Professor Chris Van Den Broeck and currently involves a team of 14 postdocs and PhD students. The group has close ties with researchers at Utrecht University’s Institute for Theoretical Physics, and with other individuals and institutes across the Netherlands as well as globally. Within the Netherlands this research will be carried out as part of the Dutch Black Hole Consortium, which includes more than 10 universities and knowledge institutes across the country. Internationally, the successful candidate will conduct her or his research as a member of the LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA Collaboration and the Einstein Telescope Collaboration.
As a candidate you are expected to have, or be in the final stages of obtaining, a PhD degree in Physics or a closely related field. Excellent programming and scientific writing skills are required, as well as English communication skills, together with the motivation to work in a multidisciplinary, international research team.
Early applications are encouraged. Also, women are strongly encouraged to apply.
