Deadline:  2022-12-01

Location:  Geneva, Switzerland

We invite applications for a postdoc position at the University of Geneva, to work on Gravitational Waves, mainly in the context of the LISA mission.

Possible topics span from the characterisation of stochastic gravitational wave backgrounds from the early universe (for example from first order phase transitions) to developing data analysis techniques for the detection of backgrounds and/or compact binaries, to the use of the gravitational wave emission from binary sources to probe the late time expansion of the universe.

The position needs to be filled *as soon as possible*. The gross salary is approximately 6700 CHF per month. Applicants with experience in: gravitational wave cosmology, gravitational wave data analysis, numerical simulations of early universe phenomena, are encouraged to apply. A completed, or near to completion, Ph.D. in Physics, Astrophysics, or closely related areas is required.

The Department of Theoretical Physics of the University of Geneva offers a lively environment with many opportunities for collaborations. Interactions with the CERN Theory Group are foreseeable. The postdoctoral fellow will become a member of the LISA Consortium.

Applications should be submitted by the 1st December 2022. Please submit a CV, publication list, statement of research interests and arrange for three referees to send letters of recommendation. Late applications may still be considered until the position is filled. For any queries about the job, please contact chiara.caprini[AT]
