The gravitational wave astronomy group at the astronomy department of Tsinghua University invites applications for a postdoctoral position in gravitational wave astrophysics/astronomy. The research group currently has one faculty member (Huan Yang) and is actively looking for more talents to join.

Candidates with research experience in one (or more) of the following areas are especially encouraged to apply for the position: (1) modelling of compact binaries for ground-based and space-based gravitational wave detection, (2) theory and simulation aspects of stars/black holes within active galactic nucleus, (3) multi-messenger gravitational wave astronomy and (4) application of Artificial Intelligence in data analysis problems in gravitational wave astronomy. However, applicants with other backgrounds will also be considered.

The start time of the position is expected to be September 2024, but this part is negotiable. The initial term of the position is two years, with a possible extension for a second term based on performance and funding situation.
