Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship in Particle Astrophysics to be held at the Niels Bohr International Academy. The successful applicant is expected to conduct research in low-energy and/or high-energy neutrino astrophysics and will work closely with Prof. Irene Tamborra. The appointment is for two years with a starting date in the fall 2017.
The Academy is a young initiative committed to fostering the traditions of internationalism, interdisciplinarity and excellence in physics, which characterize the Niels Bohr Institute. It functions as a primary center for fundamental research including theoretical and computational astrophysics, cosmology, high energy particle physics, astroparticle physics, condensed matter physics, quantum optics and biophysics. The Academy has an extensive programme of visiting scholars throughout the year and sponsors conferences and workshops in a broad range of topics. Many members of the Academy hold dual appointments with the Theoretical Particle Physics and Cosmology Group and the Discovery Center for Particle Physics at the Niels Bohr Institute. We also maintain strong links with the DARK cosmology centre.
NBIA Fellows receive a competitive salary (including pension) and funds for travel and computing. Generous parental leave, state-subsidised childcare, vacation, and full medical care are provided to employees in Denmark. A favourable tax scheme is generally granted to international researchers.
The University of Copenhagen wishes to reflect the diversity of society and welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background. The primary criterion for the evaluation of candidates is the excellence of their research.
To guarantee full consideration applications should be received before December 12, 2016. Later applications will be considered until the position is filled.
