About the position 

We welcome applications for one postdoctoral research fellow position at the Department of Physics of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). We especially encourage women to apply for this position.

The selected candidate will join a growing and multifaceted research team funded by the H2020 ERC Consolidator Grant LOVE-NEST (PI: M. Linares). The main focus of the ERC team is the study of compact binary millisecond pulsars, which has an impact on a broad range of science topics (including super-massive neutron stars, nuclear physics, gravitational wave astronomy, cosmic rays, accretion flows and pulsar winds).

The position has a duration of two years, with a possible extension to a third-year contingent on the performance of the selected candidate. Longer extensions might be possible if the researcher succeeds at securing independent funds/positions, through competitive national/international calls. The start date is mutually agreeable, and expected around February 2023.

The position is based in Trondheim: a vibrant multicultural city surrounded by beautiful landscapes and the third largest municipality in Norway (renowned as its technological capital). NTNU is the largest University in the country and provides excellent working conditions.


About the group

The Astrophysics and Particle Physics (APP) Group carries out research in high-energy astrophysics, astroparticle physics and multi-wavelength astronomy, as well as particle physics. Its current scientific interests include compact objects, cosmic ray and multi-messenger physics, dark matter, active galactic nuclei and quantum chromodynamics.

The APP Group is part of the Department of Physics, which currently employs about 180 people. On average some 2000 NTNU students follow courses at the Department of Physics every year.
