Nordita, the Nordic Institute for Theoretical Physics, invites applications for post-doctoral fellowships in astrophysics and astrobiology.
Appointments are for two years starting 1 September, 2017 or some other date to be agreed upon.
The fellowships are intended for scientists who have a recent PhD, completed less than 5 years before the starting date of the fellowship, and wish to carry out research in astrophysics and related fields.
The deadline for applications is 9 January, 2017.
Only online applications on jam.nordita.org will be accepted. Applications should contain a curriculum vitae, including a list of publications, and a statement of research interests including future research plans. Additionally, candidates must arrange for at least three letters of recommendation to be submitted no later than one week after the application deadline.
Nordita was founded in 1957 in Copenhagen, Denmark, and was relocated to the AlbaNova University Center in Stockholm in January 2007 where it is jointly hosted by Stockholm University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Research at Nordita covers a wide range of modern theoretical physics including astrophysics, biological physics, condensed matter physics, gravitation, cosmology and astroparticle physics, high-energy physics, and statistical physics/complex systems. The research activity of the local academic staff is supplemented by Nordita Scientific Programs, which bring together groups of leading experts to work on specific topics for extended periods. There is also ample opportunity for collaboration with faculty and research staff at local universities.
