The Institute of Gravitational Wave Astronomy and School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Birmingham invite applications for Postdoctoral Prize Fellowships.

The Institute's Postdoctoral Prize Fellowships provide top-calibre researchers with an opportunity to carry out an independent research program in any area connected to gravitational wave astronomy in a diverse, dynamic and collaborative group. Areas of particular strength in the group include experimental and theoretical physics with applications to future-generation detector design; data analysis for ground-based, space-borne, and pulsar-timing observatories; and theoretical astrophysics with a focus on gravitational-wave sources at all mass scales.

Applications from top researchers in all areas related to gravitational-wave astronomy, including instrumentation, quantum measurement, data analysis, astro-statistics, astronomical observations, astrophysics theory and general relativity are encouraged. Applications from Ph.D. holders with strong interdisciplinary connections (e.g., to optics, computer science, theoretical physics) or those with backgrounds in adjoining fields are welcome.

The appointment will be for a three-year term starting in 2018. The Prize Fellowship comes with a generous research and travel budget.

The deadline for the application, including reference letters, is 5 January, 2018.

For full consideration, candidates must apply online at: http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/staff/jobs/index.aspx (job reference 58387) and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent by the closing date to:
