We invite applications for two postdoc positions at the Department of Astrophysics of Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands. These 2+1 year research positions are funded by a ERC Consolidator grant to Marijke Haverkorn and will investigate the magnetic field in the Milky Way and its interplay with other Galactic components. One position is mostly observationally oriented, the other one has a significant modeling and software development component. Please find more information on the group's webpage (see below). There will be some time available to continue your own research, as long as it is broadly related to the group's interests.
The Department of Astrophysics at Radboud University is part of the Institute of Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP). The vibrant and international department consists of 13 faculty, ~15 postdocs and engineers, ~30 PhD students, and ~10 Master students. Research activities focus on high-energy astro(particle) physics, black holes, cosmic rays, gravitational waves, stellar and binary evolution, star clusters and the stellar and interstellar Milky Way.
You should have a PhD degree in astronomy or physics, and expertise in the interstellar medium and/or cosmic magnetism. The positions are open to candidates from any country. To apply, please email a succinct cover letter, a CV, and a statement of your past research and of your research plans to firstname.lastname@example.org, mentioning “Postdoc Haverkorn” in the subject line. Also, please arrange for 3 letters of reference to be emailed to email@example.com, with “Postdoc Haverkorn” in the subject line.
