The Department of Astronomy at Stockholm University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Fellow in core-collapse supernova theory and computational astrophysics.

We are seeking applications for a postdoctoral fellow in the area of core-collapse supernova theory. This position will be in collaboration with Dr. Evan O’Connor. This project aims at the development and execution of state-of-the-art computational tools for simulating core-collapse supernovae, with a particular focus on black hole formation and the multi-messenger signals. Experience in numerical techniques including relativity, hydrodynamics, and radiation transport are considered strong assets. All candidates with an interest in the theoretical aspects of supernovae are strongly encouraged to apply.

The position will also afford the possibility to interact with the extensive theoretical and observational supernova groups and the larger astronomy and physics community at Stockholm University and the Oskar Klein Centre. Stockholm University is located in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. Stockholm is a picturesque and dynamic international city surrounded by water and nature. Our department, which consists of ~80 phd students, postdocs and faculty members, is also very international.  The working language is English.
