Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position at Radboud University in Nijmegen, Netherlands. The successful candidate will work on theoretical/computational modelings of black holes and the polarized emission from their surrounding plasma in collaboration with Dr. Monika Moscibrodzka.
The appointment is intended for an initial period of one year, with a possible renewal for two more years contingent upon performance. The start of the appointment is anticipated to be in June 2020, with some flexibility.
- Ph.D. or equivalent degree in astrophysics, astronomy or physics.
- Experience in computational research on space plasma physics, or related fields.
- Experience in GRMHD simulations, radiative transfer, parallel computing and code development.
- Strong interest in Event Horizon Telescope science.
Applicants should send their applications electronically to Dr. Monika Moscibrodzka (email@example.com), including:
- A cover letter
- CV with a publication list
- A statement of your past research and of your research plans (3 pages maximum)
- Please arrange 3 letters of reference to be e-mailed to Dr. Monika Moscibrodzka (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The Department of Astrophysics at Radboud University is part of the Institute of Mathematics, Astrophysics and Particle Physics (IMAPP). The vibrant and international department consists of 11 faculty, about 15 postdocs and engineers, about 30 PhD students, and about 10 Master students. Research activities focus on high-energy astro(particle) physics, black holes, cosmic rays, gravitational waves, stellar and binary evolution, star clusters and the stellar and interstellar Milky Way.
The Department of Astrophysics at Radboud University is an equal opportunity employers, committed to building a culturally diverse intellectual community, and as such strongly encourage applications from scientists of under-represented groups.
