The Niels Bohr International Academy (NBIA) at the Niels Bohr Institute invites expressions of interest for a PhD fellowship in Gravitational Wave physics at the interface between cosmology, fundamental physics and astrophysics. The PhD fellow will be working under the supervision of Asst. Prof. Jose Maria Ezquiaga, and will be joining the Gravitational Wave Explorers Team at the Strong group funded by the VILLUM Young Investigator Grant “Exploring the Uncharted Universe with Gravitational Waves”.
The Gravitational Wave Explorers Team is part of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and the LISA Consortium. The team exploits observations of extreme gravitational systems like colliding black holes to open unique opportunities to measure the Universe’s expansion rate, map the unseen dark matter and test Einstein’s gravity.
The preferred starting date for the PhD position will be the fall of 2023 and the position will last for a fixed period of 3 years. Interested individuals are encouraged to upload all material before *March 15th, 2023*. The search may possibly continue beyond that date. Interested individuals are invited to express their interest via academicjobsonline including their CV (max. 2 pages), transcripts and indicating in their cover letter (max. 1 page): 1) a summary of their background and research interests, 2) their motivation for this PhD fellowship, 3) an example of their contribution to a research project/assignment, and 4) the name of at least one researcher with whom they have worked.
The Niels Bohr International Academy is a vibrant center for Gravitational Physics, with more than 40 researchers from junior to senior levels working on various topics related to gravity, black holes and gravitational waves, including the Strong and the Theoretical Astrophysics groups. NBIA has emerged as a highly active, inspirational and diverse research environment, that further includes regular visitors, workshops, conferences, PhD-schools, seminars, and informal group meetings.
PhD students at the Niels Bohr International Academy receive a competitive salary (including pension) and funds for travel and computing. Copenhagen is a beautiful city with a large international community, a lively and diverse cultural scene, and a very high quality of life.
The University of Copenhagen wishes to reflect the diversity of society and welcomes all qualified individuals regardless of personal background.
