The candidates will work with Prof. Lucas Lombriser on tests of gravity and the dark sector with gravitational waves and large-scale structure. Particular emphasis will be put on the development and employment of parametrisation frameworks for GW waveforms and propagation as well the linear, weakly nonlinear, and highly nonlinear regimes of LSS to Solar-System scales.

PDRA position: A PhD degree and relevant research experience are required. The appointment will be for 2+1+1 years with starting date as early as February but no later than October 2018. Postdoctoral salaries are approximately CHF 85'000 p.a. + employer's pensions.
