Deadline:  2023-02-12

Location:  Bilbao, Spain

The “Gravitation and Cosmology” group at the Department of Physics of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) is seeking expressions of interest to apply for a Ikerbasque Research Fellow. These five year fellowships are directed to promising young researchers and offer a track towards a PI role and independent research. Ikerbasque is committed to offer a long-term career and fellows in their 5th year can be assessed for a permanent position.

The position would be cofunded by a grant of the Spanish Ministry of Science. The members of this grant are David Brizuela, Inaki Garay, Ruth Lazkoz, Salvador Robles-Perez, Jose M M Senovilla, and Raul Vera. Our lines of research cover cosmological observational tests, alternative theories of gravity, dark energy, dark matter, mathematical aspects of gravitation and Lorentzian geometry, astrophysical compact objects, quantum models of cosmology and black holes, and loop quantum gravity.

The candidates should have at least 5 years of postdoctoral experience (having defended their thesis between the years 2012 and 2017) and a strong research track record in any of the above-mentioned, or related, areas. Interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae and a short statement of research interests (all joined together in one pdf file) to gravitation@ehu.eus with the subject line “Ikerbasque application”. In addition, they also should arrange for two letters of recommendation to be submitted to the same address with the subject line “Recommendation letter ‘candidate’s name'”.

The deadline for applications is February 12, 2023.
