Postdoctoral and scientific software developer positions:
For this call we are seeking applications from exceptionally motivated candidates:
– for several postdoctoral positions in the areas of gravitational wave physics, including data analysis, modelling of gravitational-wave sources, numerical relativity, and related topics in astrophysics, cosmology and fundamental physics.
– for a scientific software developer position, supporting our research in gravitational wave data analysis and numerical relativity, and in particular our involvement in the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and LISA Consortium.

The starting date can be negotiated, and is possible as early as March 2024. Initial appointment will be for 1 year, with renewal for a second and possibly third year expected, depending on satisfactory progress.
Applicants for both types of positions should send a single PDF including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications, and a brief description of research experience and interest for the postdoctoral positions, and of research and software development experience and interests for the software developer position, as well as arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to[AT]

The deadline for full consideration is December 1st, 2023.
