Ghent University is one of the most important education and research institutions in the Low Countries. The Department of Physics and Astronomy has active research groups working in a.o. quantum theory, extragalactic astronomy and experimental (astro)particle physics. With this opening the department wants to become an active participant in the European projects in the observation of gravitational waves, in particular concerning the next generation of instruments like the Einstein Telescope. The succesfull candidate is expected to possess a significant scientific network in the field of gravitational wave observations, and to use it in order to establish his/her own research group that participates in the observational gravitational wave research in an international context.
Depending on the specific profile of the selected candidate, the degree of assistant professor (tenure track), associate professor, full professor or senior full professor is awarded. This will be decided by the University Board as proposed by the Faculty Board. The recruitment is possible no sooner than 1 October 2019.
