We invite applications for a post-doctoral position, funded from the research grant "Astrophysics of the processes around compact objects" under the supervision of prof. Agnieszka Janiuk.
The candidates must have a PhD in astronomy or physics, or provide a letter from their supervisor that they will obtain their degree before the starting date.
The application should contain cover letter, curriculum vitae, description of past research activities and present interests (3 pages maximum), as well as photocopies of passport/ID and diplomma. Two letters of reference should be sent directly to email@example.com. The appointment will be initially for 1 year with a possibility of extension to 5 years total, subject to satisfactory performance and funding.
The candidate should have experience in computational astrophysics. Additional experience in the high-level data analysis is valued. He/she will work on the modeling and interpretation of phenomena in the environment of compact objects: accreting black holes or neutron stars, gamma ray bursts and quasars. Applications should be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, as well as the signed hardcopies delivered by post, before the deadline of April 02, 2013. The applications submitted after this date might further be taken into consideration until the position is filled. The contract is scheduled to start on July 1 2013, however, the date is negotiable. The salary will be commensurate with salaries at our institute for researchers of similar status. The postdoc will have access to computational facilities and travel support.
For further questions please contact: prof. Agnieszka Janiuk (firstname.lastname@example.org).
