Job Announcement Text: 

The Niels Bohr International Academy plans to fill a number of postdoctoral fellowships in theoretical astrophysics and cosmology with starting date in the fall of 2012. This year, there are additional positions devoted to candidates with a strong background in astrophysical fluid dynamics to work with Martin Pessah on subjects related to accretion physics, star and planet formation, as well as the physics of the inter-stellar and intra-cluster media. Candidates with expertise on MHD and particle-in-cell codes are encouraged to apply. All candidates will automatically be considered for any open postdoctoral positions within astrophysics, planetary sciences, and cosmology at the Niels Bohr Institute. Appointments are for two years with the possibility of extension for a third year. The primary criterion for the evaluation of applicants is scientific excellence.

The Academy is a young initiative committed to fostering the traditions of internationalism, interdisciplinarity and excellence in physics, which characterize the Niels Bohr Institute. It functions as a primary center for fundamental research including theoretical and computational astrophysics, cosmology, high-energy particle physics, condensed matter physics, and bio-physics. Postdoctoral members at the Academy regularly interact and collaborate with members of the Computational Astrophysics Group, the Centre for Star and Planet Formation, and the Dark Cosmology Centre within the Niels Bohr Institute.

Postdoctoral Fellows at the NBIA receive a competitive salary (including pension), as well as additional funds for computers and travel.

The University of Copenhagen wishes to reflect the diversity of society and welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.

Included Benefits: 

Generous parental leave, state-subsidized childcare, vacation, pension contribution, and full medical care are available to employees in Denmark. Most international researchers are eligible for a favorable tax scheme.
