Postdoctoral position in gravitational wave cosmology at IFT, Madrid

Post by Sachiko Kuroyanagi » February 29 2020

We invite applications for a postdoctoral research position at the Institute of Theoretical Physics IFT CSIC/UAM in Madrid (Spain) in the field of gravitational wave cosmology. The position is funded by “Atracción de Talento Investigador” grant #2019-T1/TIC-13177 (S. Kuroyanagi) awarded by Comunidad de Madrid.

The successful candidate will work on data analysis to extract cosmological information from gravitational wave observations with Dr. Sachiko Kuroyanagi. Prior experience in gravitational wave data analysis is beneficial but not strictly required.

IFT takes part in the activities for the third-generation ground-based observatory Einstein Telescope (ET) and participates in the space-borne Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA). Members of the cosmology group active in the field of gravitational waves include Prof. Juan García-Bellido, Dr. Savvas Nesseris and Dr. Sachiko Kuroyanagi.

Appointments will be for a two-year term starting in the Fall of 2020, with a possible extension for a third year depending on performance and funding availability. Applications received by March 31 2020 will receive full consideration.
