Position ID:University of Amsterdam-GRAPPA-RA [#10456]
Position Title: Research Associates in (Astro)Particle Physics
Position Type:Postdoctoral
Position Location:Amsterdam, Noord-Holland 1090 GL, Netherlands [map]
Subject Areas: Physics / Particle Astrophysics, Machine Learning, particle phenomenology and astroparticle physics, Particle Physics, Particle/Cosmology Theory
Appl Deadline:2017/12/01 (posted 2017/11/10, listed until 2018/05/10)
Position Description:    

GRAPPA, the center of excellence in Astroparticle Physics of the University of Amsterdam, is a joint effort between the Institute for High Energy Physics, the Anton Pannekoek Institute, and the Institute for Theoretical Physics. It consists of eight faculty members – S. Ando, D. Baumann, G. Bertone (spokesperson), M.P. Decowski, B. Freivogel, S. Markoff, J. Vink and C. Weniger – whose research interests include black holes, cosmic rays, neutrinos, dark matter, dark energy, early universe cosmology, and string theory. In addition, there are about 15 affiliated GRAPPA faculty who are involved with experimental work on Antares/KM3NeT, ATLAS, CTA, LIGO/VIRGO, LOFAR and XENON100/XENON1T, as well as theory.

We invite applications for one or more postdoctoral positions in the fields of particle and astroparticle physics. One of the successful candidates will work in an interdisciplinary team led by G. Bertone. We are looking in particular for candidates who have experience in applying machine learning methods to particle and astroparticle physics problems. Candidates who have shown excellence in other relevant fields and are willing to broaden their research interests are also encouraged to apply. Additional postdoctoral positions might become available in the group of Christoph Weniger. All candidates will be automatically considered for those positions.

The appointment is for two years (with a possible extension to a third year), with a salary set by Dutch labor law, including generous benefits. Candidates should preferably have obtained a PhD in a field related to the group's research interests after December 2013, or expect to obtain it by September 2018.
