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 two 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. Another successful candidate will work in the field of dark matter theory, statistical methods and cosmic rays in the group of Christoph Weniger. Candidates who have shown excellence in other relevant fields and are willing to broaden their research interests are also encouraged to apply. All candidates will be automatically considered for all positions open at GRAPPA.

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.
