Postdoctoral positions in Gravitational Wave Astronomy at the
University of Birmingham
The Institute for Gravitational Wave Astronomy at the University of
Birmingham, UK, invites applications for postdoctoral positions.
The Institute provides a vibrant and diverse environment with
expertise covering theoretical and experimental gravitational-wave
research, with applications to present and future-generation
detectors, theoretical astrophysics, transient astronomy,
gravitational-wave source modeling, and general relativity theory.
Applications from top researchers in all areas related to
gravitational-wave and transient astronomy are encouraged.
Institute faculty members include Andreas Freise, Davide Gerosa, Denis
Martynov, Haixing Miao, Christopher Moore, Conor Mow-Lowry, Matt
Nicholl, Patricia Schmidt, Silvia Toonen, and Alberto Vecchio.
One postdoctoral appointment is funded by the UK Leverhulme Trust (PI
Dr. Davide Gerosa) and is focused on developing astrophysical and
statistical predictions for the LISA space mission. The successful
candidate will have ample opportunities to explore other areas of
gravitational-wave astronomy as well.
Appointments will be for a three-year term starting in the Fall of
2020 and come with generous research and travel budget.
Applications should include a CV with a list of publications, and a
two-page statement covering research interests and plans. Complete
applications should be received by 27 January 2020 for full
consideration. Applications should be sent to Ms. Joanne Cox at:
