Center for Theoretical Physics PAS invites applications for PhD position at the CTP PAS, financed from the project “Constraints on the dark energy properties based on observations of active galaxies”, National Science Center (NCN), project No. 2017/26/A/ST9/00756 (MAESTRO 9). PI of the project is Prof. Bożena Czerny. The PhD student will be enlisted as a participant of the PhD Program of the Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center PAS (CAMK PAN) but will have an individual program under supervision of B. Czerny. The PhD subject will be related to the topic of the project. The student will receive a stipend of 4500 zł/month, for the maximum period of 4 years.

At the time of application the candidates should either have a MSc degree, or will obtain it before signing the contract. We search for candidates interested in the research in the domain of astrophysics. Candidates with previous experience in programming are particularly welcome. The specific topic of the study would be the radiative transfer in the dusty Broad Line Region, and the improved understanding of this region will allow to use quasars as new cosmological tool, complementary to the Supernovae Ia.

Candidates should submit the required documents before March 26, 2018, to cft@cft.edu.pl. For the specific requirements see the links below.

Questions about the project and employment conditions should be sent directly to Prof. Bozena Czerny (bcz@cft.edu.pl).
