Job Announcement Text: 

The Oskar Klein Centre for Cosmoparticle Physics at Stockholm University is announcing eleven postdoctoral positions on research addressing fundamental questions about the universe. The Centre houses research groups from Stockholm University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology. The Centre hosts a vibrant research programme on dark matter, dark energy, transient and multimessenger astrophysics, structure formation, and related particle physics questions, including LHC-based studies. Theoretical activities at the Centre include particle and astroparticle phenomenology, neutrino theory, gravitation and string theory. 

Postdoctoral fellowships are available in the following areas: 

LSST science: up to three positions to work on large scale structure cosmology, transient astrophysics / supernova cosmology, or low surface brightness extragalactic science within the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration with Hiranya Peiris, Jens Jasche, Ariel Goobar, Jesper Sollerman, Matthew Hayes.

EM-GW modelling: Up to two positions to work on simulating multi-messenger aspects of sources that produce both gravitational and electromagnetic waves with Stephan Rosswog, targeting relativistic (magneto-)hydrodynamics, nucleosynthesis and/or radiative transfer.

Multi-messenger astronomy & cosmology: Up to two positions to work on supernova cosmology and/or observations of rare transients from the ZTF/Growth collaborations, including kilonovae and gravitationally-lensed transients, with Ariel Goobar, Hiranya Peiris and Jesper Sollerman.

Experimental particle physics: up to two positions to work with Sara Strandberg on analysis of high energy proton-proton collisions collected with the ATLAS experiment at CERN. The research will focus on searches for supersymmetric top-quark partners and Higgs pair production, flavour tagging and luminosity activities.

High energy astrophysics: two positions to work on topics related to gamma-ray bursts and/or X-ray binaries with Felix Ryde at the Physics Department, KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Deadline: evaluation of applications will begin on Sept 30, 2019 and will continue until the position is filled.

Contact details and the application procedure for each set of positions can be found in the individual links above. For general information you may also contact the Director of the Oskar Klein Centre, Hiranya  Peiris (hiranya.peiris@fysik.su.se).
