The Niels Bohr International Academy (NBIA) at the Niels Bohr Institute invites expressions of interest for Postdoctoral Fellowships in Gravitational Wave Physics and Multi-Messenger Astronomy. Postdoctoral fellows will be joining the group of Asst. Prof. Jose María Ezquiaga, the Gravitational Wave Explorers Team at the Strong group, funded by the VILLUM Young Investigator Grant “Exploring the Uncharted Universe with Gravitational Waves”.

Positions will last for a fixed period of 2+1 years, and include generous funds for travel and computing. The starting date is negotiable. Interested individuals are encouraged to upload all materials before December 1st, 2023. We seek highly motivated and outstanding individuals who could work at the interface between cosmology, fundamental physics, astrophysics and data analysis.

The Gravitational Wave Explorers Team is part of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and the LISA Consortium. The team exploits observations of extreme gravitational systems like colliding black holes to open unique opportunities to measure the Universe’s expansion rate, map the unseen dark matter via lensing and test Einstein's gravity.  All group members have access to some of the largest dedicated computer resources in Scandinavia, including a general-purpose cluster with more than 10,000 cores, a GPU cluster, a petabyte of storage, and dedicated data analysis servers.

The Niels Bohr International Academy is a vibrant center for Gravitational Physics, with more than 40 researchers from junior to senior levels working on various topics related to gravity, black holes and gravitational waves, including the Strong and the Theoretical Astrophysics groups. NBIA has emerged as a highly active, inspirational and diverse research environment that further includes regular visitors, workshops, conferences, seminars, and in formal group meetings. 

Postdoctoral fellows at the NBIA receive a competitive salary (including pension) and funds for travel and computing. Copenhagen is a beautiful city with a large international community, a lively and diverse cultural scene, and a very high quality of life. 

The University of Copenhagen wishes to reflect the diversity of society and welcomes all qualified individuals regardless of personal background.
