We anticipate the opening of up to 4 two- and three-year postdoctoral positions in neutron star physics and gravitational wave cosmology at the Helsinki Institute of Physics and the Department of Physics of the University of Helsinki in 2019. The starting date of the positions is negotiable, and can vary between January 1 and November 1 of next year. The positions will be associated with the Academy of Finland and ERC funded research groups of Profs. Mark Hindmarsh, Kari Rummukainen and Aleksi Vuorinen.
Interested qualified applicants, who will have completed their PhD degree by the end of 2019, are asked to upload their applications through the link http://hep.physics.helsinki.fi/applications/upload.html. The applications should contain a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and a brief research statement, all merged into one single pdf file. The applicants should also arrange for three recommendation letters to be uploaded through http://hep.physics.helsinki.fi/applications/recommend.html. The recommendations can be uploaded only after the applicant has submitted their application and provided the applicant code to the referees.
The deadline for the applications and recommendations is November 15, or until the positions are filled.
There is an ample travel budget associated with the positions. Both desktop and laptop computers will be provided for the hired postdoctoral fellows.
