Tenure-Track Assistant/Associate Professor in Mathematical Physics at Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands

The Mathematics Department of Radboud University (Nijmegen, The Netherlands) is looking for a tenure track Assistant/Associate Professor in Mathematical General Relativity and Geometric Analysis.

For the tenure track the initial employment is for six years. If the final review is positive the position will be converted to a permanent one. For candidates who are already further in their career a higher entry level is negotiable. We particularly encourage female applicants and applicants from diverse backgrounds to apply.

The Mathematics Department at Radboud University is part of the Institute for Mathematics, Astrophysics, and Particle Physics (IMAPP) in the Faculty of Science. This new position will strengthen IMAPP’s increasing focus on gravity as a key research theme (ranging from its mathematical language and underpinning to the theoretical study of classical and quantum gravity to the imaging of black holes by the Event Horizon Telescope), as well as the Mathematics Department’s focus on applied analysis, and geometry and topology.

Tenure track position in gravitational wave physics at UIB, Palma de Mallorca, Spain

The gravitational physics group (http://grg.uib.es) at the Balearic Islands University (UIB) is looking for candidates to apply for a distinguished researcher tenure track position, which has been granted in the framework of the Beatriz Galindo program. The successful candidate will be selected by an international panel.

The position is initially funded for 4 years, and UIB has committed to open a permanent faculty position in order to integrate the successful candidate as a faculty member of the University into the department of physics once the grant has been completed.

Candidates will be expected to carry out research that broadens the activities of the gravitational physics group within the IAC3 research institute for computational physics (http://iac3.uib.cat) in the field of gravitational wave physics, in particular with a view toward the science of next generation instruments, and to carry out teaching in computational physics.

Requirements for candidates:
– All or part of their professional career should have been developed outside of Spain, with a maximal professional experience outside of Spain (counted after obtaining the PhD) of seven years.
– Candidates should have postdoctoral experience in the field of gravitational wave physics, including astrophysics from gravitational wave sources or cosmology with direct application in this field.

In addition to a description of their research, teaching and transfer of knowledge plans, candidates will have to accredit their professional experience.

The deadline for applications is 17:00 CEST, May 24 2019.
Online submission requires of a valid electronic certificate

Tenure-Track Assistant/Associate Professor in Geometry at Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands

The Mathematics department of Radboud University (Nijmegen, The Netherlands) has a vacancy for a tenure track assistant/associate professorship in Geometry (broadly interpreted).

Initially this concerns an employment for six years. There will be a final evaluation after at most five and a half years. If the final review is positive the position will be converted to a permanent one. For candidates who are already further in their career an earlier evaluation is possible.

The department aims at increasing the number of female academic mathematicians employed by the institute. Female candidates are therefore particularly encouraged to apply.

UCSD Faculty Position in Gravitational Wave Astrophysics

The Department of Physics within the Division of Physical Sciences at UC San Diego is committed to academic excellence and diversity within the faculty, staff, and student body and invites applications for a tenured (Associate level) or tenure-track (Assistant level) faculty position in Gravitational Wave Astrophysics. This is a broad search for outstanding researchers in gravitational wave science, including theoreticians (fundamental gravitation theory, gravitational wave source modeling, numerical relativity), gravitational wave data analysts, or experimentalists working on the design, development or construction of instrumentation for gravitational wave science.
