Postdoc in Theory and Gravitational Wave Probes of Dense Matter Physics (1.0 FTE)

Updated: 3 months ago
Job Type: Temporary
Deadline: 06 Dec 2022

The Institute for Theoretical Physics (ITP) at Utrecht University is currently looking for a postdoctoral researcher at the interface of theoretical advances in relativistic hydrodynamics with gravitational waves from neutron star binaries. You are going to work in the group of Tanja Hinderer and become member of the interdisciplinary Dutch consortium ‘Probing the phase diagram of quantum chromodynamics’. This is a collaboration of Utrecht University (Profs. Gürsoy, van den Broeck, Snellings, Christakoglou), the University of Amsterdam (Profs. Watts, Nissanke, Mösta) and the University of Groningen (Dr Even).

In this position you will focus your work on the development of an overarching theoretical framework for relativistic (magneto-)hydrodynamics of dissipative multi-fluid systems. You will include sufficient complexity to encompass a range of physical effects and study consequences for gravitational waves from neutron star binary inspirals.
