2 PhD positions on gravitational wave, compact object and stellar
astrophysics at the Geneva Observatory of the University of Geneva

Applications are invited for 2 PhD student positions in theoretical and
computational astrophysics at the Department of Astronomy of the
University of Geneva to start in fall 2018. The successful candidates
will work within the group of Prof. Tassos Fragos on the fields of
compact-object formation, gravitational wave astrophysics and the
evolution of massive binary stars.

The potential research projects focus on understanding the formation of
binaries containing compact objects, black holes and neutron stars,
including gravitational wave sources and accreting compact objects. The
candidates will also contribute to the development of next-generation
simulation tools for the study of compact-object binary populations.
Furthermore, they will be members of an international network of
collaborating institutions in Europe and the United States, which will
give them the opportunity for extended visits in one or more of the
collaborating institutions.

The Geneva Observatory and the associated Laboratory of Astrophysics of
the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) carry out
observational, interpretative, and theoretical research in the fields of
extra-solar planets, stellar physics, high energy astrophysics, galaxy
evolution and dynamics, and observational cosmology, providing a rich
and vibrant research environment.

Applications are invited from candidates with a solid background in
physics or astronomy and should consist of a cover letter explaining the
motivation for seeking a PhD in theoretical and computational
astrophysics and especially the aforementioned research fields, a
statement outlining any research experience so far (<1 page each), a CV,
and a copy of the Bachelor and Master academic record (exams, theses,
and grades). Candidates should also provide names and e-mail addresses
of at least two references. Applications should be sent as a single PDF
file to [log in to unmask]

Complete applications received by 15 April 2018 will receive full
consideration, but the search will remain open until the positions are
filled. Preliminary inquiries may be addressed via e-mail to

Generous Salary, Standard Swiss Social Security, Accident Insurance, 
Pension contributions, Maternal leave and access to family support 
programs (see:
