Applicants are invited for a postdoctoral research position in observational multiwavelength studies of active galactic nuclei (AGN) at research section DARK at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen. The postdoc will work with Prof. Marianne Vestergaard and her research team. The position is part of a larger effort to understand the black hole powered central engine of AGN and will primarily focus on analysis of observations of a changing-look AGN. There is a possibility to also work on other projects with the team, and to work on the candidate’s own research.
Candidates with a strong background in observational astrophysics of galaxies and/or AGN are encouraged to apply. Experience with radio and millimeter interferometry and successful experience writing telescope observing proposals for any wavelength regime are both considered strong assets. However, significant experience with handling data in any subfield is also an asset. Other assets could be significant experience analyzing large multiwavelength data sets (radio, infrared, optical, UV and possibly X-rays) and experience developing software code to model observational data.
DARK’s areas of research include, but are not limited to: observations, simulations and theory of astrophysical transients and cosmic explosions (such as tidal disruption events and supernovae), galactic dynamics, neutrino astrophysics, high-redshift galaxies, fundamental cosmology, dark matter and dark energy, black holes and AGN, and cosmic dust.
DARK strives to facilitate the progress of underrepresented groups in higher education careers and strongly encourages these candidates to apply.
