Postdoctoral position in Relativistic and Nuclear Astrophysics, Trento, Italy

More info:  external link
Deadline:  2023-12-13

Location:  Trento, Italy

18-months postdoc position (Assegno di Ricerca) at the University of Trento funded via the PRIN MUR 2022 project “EMERGE – Neutron star mergers and the origin of short gamma-ray bursts” to work within the Relativistic and Nuclear Astrophysics research group of Prof. Albino Perego in Trento .

EMERGE is a project developed within INAF Padova (National PI: R. Ciolfi), Milano-Bicocca University (local PI: B. Giacomazzo) and Trento University (local PI: Albino Perego).
Recently, all the three units have advertised similar positions.

The researcher in Trento will work on the modeling of binary neutron star mergers and of their
observables by means of sophisticated computational models. Possible topics include the role of weak interaction, r-process nucleosynthesis, kilonova emission, the equation of state of neutron star matter.

The application is rather straightforward and it must include the CV and publication list of the
candidate. Candidates are expected to provide a research proposal, to briefly introduce
themselves and to explain how they would develop the research topic (about 2 pages).

More information about the application can be found in the provided external link and, in particular, in the pdf you can find at the bottom of the page (the so-called “bando”), where a courtesy English translation is on the right column, while the original Italian version is on the left.

Any interested candidates is strongly encouraged to directly contact me


especially for questions and further information. The deadline for the application is December 13th
2023 (12:00 noon, CET).
The position is expected to start between January-April 2024.
Candidates planning to finish their PhD after December 13th 2023 are also welcome to apply, but
they are expected to have their doctoral degree before the starting of the position.

Please, feel free to share this information with anyone who might be interested in applying.
