The Anton Pannekoek Institute for Astronomy (API) at the University of Amsterdam invites applicants for multiple PhD positions in astronomy and astrophysics. The positions are open to candidates from any country. The institute provides a stimulating, international environment in a city where English is a common language. Of our current 50 PhD candidates, over 70% are foreign and over 40% are female.
PhD candidates execute a vigorous research program, under the supervision of one or more faculty members. Positions will be available in a number of fields of research where the institute is active, including exoplanets and their atmospheres, protoplanetary disks, stellar astrophysics, compact objects, supernovae and compact object mergers and magnetohydrodynamic simulations of relativistic jets.
On our website you will find general information about doing a PhD at the API, our research and the available projects.
The successful candidates must have an MSc degree (or equivalent) in physics, astronomy or a related subject, by the PhD starting date, which will typically be in Autumn 2019, but this is negotiable.
We are an equal opportunity employer and greatly value the diverse nature of our institute. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status.
