The Anton Pannekoek Institute for Astronomy (API) at the University of Amsterdam invites applicants for multiple PhD positions in astronomy and astrophysics. The positions are open to candidates from any country. The institute provides a stimulating, international environment in a city where English is a common language. Of our current PhD candidates, over 70% are foreign, and over 40% are female.
PhD candidates execute a vigorous research program, under the supervision of one or more faculty members. Positions will be available across a range of fields of research where the institute is active, including exoplanets, compact objects, stellar astrophysics and transients. On our website you will find information about our research and (at a later stage) details of available PhD projects.
The successful candidates must have a MSc degree (or equivalent) in astronomy, astrophysics, physics or a related topic by the PhD starting date, which will typically be in Autumn 2018, but this is negotiable.
We are an equal opportunity employer and greatly value the diverse nature of our institute. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status.
Please apply using the link on the website.
Applications need to be submitted on or before 21 November 2017. By early January we will invite promising candidates for a presentation and interviews to be held on 15 and 16 February 2018.
