Position Description:    

We are seeking a postdoctoral research associate to lead an interdisciplinary research programme on gravitational wave probes of particle dark matter. The successful candidate will perform high-level research in the rapidly developing field of precision gravitational wave astronomy, and assess the implications for the identification of the fundamental nature of dark matter particle.

Candidates with previous research experience in gravitational wave astronomy and/or particle dark matter studies, as well as with a track record in interdisciplinary research will be given additional consideration.

The center of excellence in Gravitation and Astroparticle Physics (GRAPPA) is connected to the Institute of Physics and the Anton Pannekoek Institute at the University of Amsterdam as well as Nikhef. GRAPPA researchers have wide research interests, including dark matter phenomenology, cosmic rays, high-energy astrophysics, cosmology, black holes physics, gravitational waves, and string theory. GRAPPA also includes experimental physicists active in the Antares/KM3NeT, ATLAS, CTA, LOFAR, and XENON1T collaborations. We are associated with the Virgo Collaboration, the Einstein Telescope collaboration and LISA consortium.

The University of Amsterdam is an equal-opportunity employer. We prioritise diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for everyone. We value a spirit of enquiry and perseverance, provide the space to keep asking questions, and promote a culture of curiosity and creativity. To this end, we strongly encourage applications from people of diverse backgrounds and from underrepresented groups. We also welcome active contribution by the fellow to our discussions on diversity, equity and inclusion.
