Fixed Term contract until 31.03.2022
The Institute of Gravitational Wave Astronomy at the University of Birmingham invites applications for a postdoctoral researcher to work on gravitational wave astronomy and data analysis for LISA. This position will initially be for a short, fixed term but with excellent opportunities for extension up to 2024 subject to the availability of funding and satisfactory performance.
The Institute of Gravitational Wave Astronomy is one of the leading research centres world-wide focusing on the revolutionary field of gravitational wave astronomy and related areas. The institute has a rich portfolio of research activities ranging from quantum optics and interferometry, to data analysis, the astrophysics of gravitational-wave sources, multi-messenger astronomy, and tests of strong-field gravity. Institute members play leading roles in the GEO Collaboration, the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna, the European and International Pulsar Timing Array Collaboration, and the Einstein gravitational-wave Telescope.
The institute is leading the UK contribution to science ground segment activities for the LISA mission with funding from the UK Space Agency. The successful applicant will be expected to play a prominent role in these activities. Top applicants (especially those with experience in software, data analysis and source modelling in any area of gravitational wave astronomy) are encouraged to apply.
The Institute of Gravitational Wave Astronomy is affiliated with the Astrophysics and Space Research group, one of the eight research groups active in the School of Physics and Astronomy, which has about 50 permanent academic staff. The group has a strong track record of attracting research funding. It is supported by a variety of grants from several sources, including UKSA, STFC, EPSRC, EC and the Leverhulme Trust.
