Dennis Sciama Postdoctoral Fellowship in Gravitational Wave Science

Employment type:  Full time, Fixed-term (3 years)

Salary:  £34,520 - £37,706

Position number: ZZ004032

Closing date: 5th January 2018

Interview date:  To be scheduled between 15th – 26th January 2018

 

We announce our fourth Dennis Sciama Postdoctoral Fellowship competition at the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation (ICG) at the University of Portsmouth aimed at promising early career researchers in gravitational wave science. This is part of our continued expansion into gravitational wave research with further staff appointments to follow in 2018. We seek an independent, early career researcher with demonstrated excellence in gravitational wave research, that would complement and extend this new ICG research group. Over the course of the fellowship, they will be expected to develop their own programme of research and innovation, and help attract external funding to the ICG.

 

The ICG consists of 13 academic staff, 20 postdoctoral researchers and over 20 PhD students, and has an active international visitors programme. ICG is a member of several major astronomical surveys (Sloan Digital Sky Survey, Dark Energy Survey, Large Synpotic Survey Telescope, Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument) with major involvement in ESA’s Euclid satellite mission and the Square Kilometre Array. The University of Portsmouth is a member of the South-East Physics Network (SEPnet) and hosts the 3704-core SCIAMA supercomputer. More information is available at http://www.icg.port.ac.uk/

 

We welcome applications from all qualified applicants, but applications are particularly encouraged from traditionally under-represented groups in science. The University of Portsmouth and the ICG hold Athena SWAN bronze awards and the university is an Institute of Physics Project Juno Supporter; these projects show a commitment to introduce organisational and cultural practices that promote diversity and equality in science and create a better working environment for men and women.

 

Applications (application form, CV, publication list and research statement for the fellowship) should be submitted via the online application system by the closing date.  Applicants should also arrange for up to three reference letters to be sent by email to icg-admin@port.ac.uk, to arrive by the same date. We expect the fellowship to start 1st September 2018 or as close to that date as feasible.  Informal enquiries to Prof. David Wands (david.wands@port.ac.uk)

 

All applications for this position will be processed and conducted in compliance with UK legislation relevant at that time.
