Postdoctoral Prize Fellowships at the University of Birmingham
The Institute for Gravitational Wave Astronomy at the University of
Birmingham, UK, invites applications for Postdoctoral Prize Fellowships.
The Institute's Postdoctoral Prize Fellowships provide top-caliber researchers with an opportunity to carry out an independent research programme in any area related to gravitational-wave astronomy in a diverse, dynamic and collaborative group. The Institute's research activities cover experimental and theoretical physics with applications to present and future-generation detectors; gravitational-wave observations and transient astronomy; theoretical astrophysics and general relativity. Faculty members include Andreas Freise, Davide Gerosa (from March 2019), Denis
Martynov, Haixing Miao, Christopher Moore (from January 2019), Conor Mow-Lowry, Matt Nicholl (from October 2019), Alberto Sesana, Patricia Schmidt (from January 2019) , Silvia Toonen (from March 2019), and Alberto Vecchio.
Applications from top researchers in all areas related togravitational-wave astronomy, including instrumentation, quantum measurement, data analysis, astrostatistics, transient astronomy, astrophysics theory and general relativity are encouraged. Applications from Ph.D. holders with strong interdisciplinary connections (e.g., to optics, computer science, theoretical physics) or those with backgrounds in adjoint fields are welcome.
The appointment will be for a three-year term starting in 2019. The Prize Fellowship comes with a generous research and travel budget.
Applications should be submitted online via the following URL (job reference number 80380):
Applications should include a CV, a two-page statement of research interests and plans, and a list of publications.
Complete applications should be received by 17 December 2018 for full consideration
Applicants should also arrange for 3 reference letters to be sent by 17 December 2018 to Ms Joanne Cox at: J.S.Cox[AT]bham.ac.uk
For further information and informal enquiries please contact Prof Andreas Freise (adf [AT] star.sr.bham.ac.uk) or Prof Alberto Vecchio (av [AT]star.sr.bham.ac.uk).
