Postdoctoral Fellowships in Gravitational Wave Astrophysics

The Gravitational Wave Astrophysics Group at the Niels Bohr International Academy (NBIA) at the Niels Bohr Institute invites expressions of interest for Postdoctoral Fellowships for a period of up to (2+1) years in the areas of compact object dynamics and transient electro-magnetic (EM) and gravitational wave (GW) astrophysics. Interested individuals are encouraged to upload all material using this website before November 15th, 2023. The preferred starting date is Fall of 2024.

We are looking for exceptionally qualified scientists who will join a vibrant group led by Johan Samsing, located at the historical Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, with research themes of interest that include N-body and hydro-dynamical modeling of EM and GW sources from stellar mass black holes to the super massives in relation to present and future detectors (LIGO/LISA/3G/...). These hires are part of the ERC-grant "Black Hole Mergers" (J. Samsing), but there is freedom to pursue any ideas within these general themes.

The group is highly active in organising local and international meetings, workshops, PhD-schools, and hosts also a lively visitor program. There will also be opportunities to guide more junior fellows, teach courses at various levels, participate in outreach activities, and organise international meetings. Positions come with a generous research and travel budget.

All members of Johan Samsing's group will have exclusive access to some of the largest dedicated astrophysics 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.

Expressions of interest should be submitted via the online submission system (including a cover letter, CV, publication list, a research statement, and three letters of recommendation). For full consideration, files should be received by November 15th, 2023.

For further information, questions and informal inquiries please contact Johan Samsing via email

The Niels Bohr International Academy strives to attract the best and the brightest by providing the environment to enable curiosity-driven breakthrough research in the physical sciences and mathematics. The Academy hosts numerous workshops, symposia and PhD-schools every year, as well as a number of outreach activities, including an annual series of public lectures. The University of Copenhagen wishes to reflect the diversity of society and welcomes all qualified candidates regardless of personal background. Copenhagen is a beautiful, family-friendly city with a large international community, a lively and diverse cultural scene, and a very high quality of life.
