The Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Informatics of the Nicolaus Copernicus University invites applications for 12- to 24-month postdoctoral positions (adiunkt naukowy) in theoretical/observational inhomogeneous cosmology. A substantial fraction of the successful candidates' research work will be expected to focus on the possible links between inhomogeneous cosmology and dark matter, but they will also be expected to develop their own original cosmology research programs.

The postdoc position will be a part of the Theme 3: Theoretical investigation of general-relativistic effective contributions to dark matter fields of the A next-generation worldwide quantum sensor network with optical atomic clocks project, carried out within the TEAM programme of the Foundation for Polish Science. More information is available at http://www.fizyka.umk.pl/~castle .

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Required: a doctorate in astrophysics or a closely related field.
  • Required: a growing record of publications in observational and/or numerical relativistic cosmology.
  • Preferred: development experience in general (C, fortran, autotools, git) and/or specific (Einstein Toolkit, gevolution, inhomog) scientific software
  • Preferred: research experience in either (i) inhomogeneous cosmology simulations with emerging average scalar curvature; or (ii) numerical modelling of dark-matter dominated galaxy formation.
