Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship in Particle Astrophysics to be held at the Niels Bohr International Academy and DARK. The successful applicant is expected to conduct research in neutrino astrophysics and will work closely with Prof. Irene Tamborra. The appointment is for two years with a starting date in the fall 2018.

The Niels Bohr International 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. 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. Areas of research of the DARK Center at the Niels Bohr Institute include, but are not limited to: observations, simulations and theory of astrophysical transients and cosmic explosions (including tidal disruption events, supernovae, compact binary mergers, gamma-ray bursts, and active galactic nuclei), neutrino astrophysics, high-redshift galaxies, dark matter and dark energy, black holes, and cosmic dust.

Postdoctoral 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 favorable 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 15, 2017. Later applications will be considered until the position is filled.
