The Computational Astrophysics group at the Astrophysics and Planetary Science section, part of the Niels Bohr Institute, invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship related to the Independent Research Fund Denmark project ”Unravelling the Formation of Multiple Stellar Systems”.
We are seeking a highly motivated individual with expertise in computational star formation, dynamics of young binary systems, synthetic observations, and high-performance computing. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to guide more junior fellows, teach courses at various levels, participate in outreach activities, and organize international meetings. The position is open for 2 years.
The Computational Astrophysics group at the Astrophysics and Planetary Science section has a long tradition of realistic computational modelling with a strong theoretical foundation in a broad range of astrophysical subjects. The interests in the group includes star formation, planet formation, solar physics, collision-less plasmas, computational astrochemistry, and synthetic observations. We have strong ties to the Theoretical Astrophysics Group at the Niels Bohr International Academy. We are part of the Centre for Star and Planet Formation that is characterized by a vibrant multi-disciplinary environment, and jointly hosted by the Natural History Museum of Denmark and the Niels Bohr Institute. The center hosts a large number of international visitors and workshops, as well as summer PhD schools.
The position is open from February 1st, 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
