PhD fellow at the Cosmic Dawn Center, Niels Bohr Institute
The Cosmic DAWN Center, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen invites applications for PhD Fellow positions starting in September 2020, or as soon as possible thereafter. The center brings together experts in all aspects of early Universe galaxy evolution and is deeply involved in major existing and upcoming surveys with HST, ALMA, Euclid and JWST, as well as cosmological and zoom in simulations. In addition the center has a number of associate members at major research institutes across Europe, North America, and Australia. PhD students will have both an advisor in Copenhagen and an external advisor at one of our affiliated research institutes or another major research institute.

Fellowships are intended for outstanding candidates with a background in astronomy, physics, or related technical disciplines who are interested in doing research within DAWN’s research themes: high-redshift galaxy evolution, epoch of re-ionization, first stars and galaxies, dust and ISM in the early universe and dark matter. Positions are available for three years for candidates already holding a MSc, or for five years for very strong candidates who would then obtain both a MSc and PhD during their studies at DAWN.
