Three Postdoctoral Research Associate positions in Theoretical Astrophysics at DAMTP, University of CambridgeDecember 4, 2019, from Marianna Korsos
Applications are invited for three Postdoctoral Research Associate positions in Theoretical Astrophysics at DAMTP, University of Cambridge, two of which involve MHD and hydrodynamics. Funding for these positions has been approved by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and is for up to three years.
We have extended the closing date for applications to ** 9 December 2019 **.
The successful candidates will work with academic staff (Henrik Latter, Gordon Ogilvie and Roman Rafikov) on theoretical and computational projects related to: the dynamics of accretion discs; the formation, evolution and dynamics of exoplanets; the tidal interactions of planets, stars and discs; and the dynamics of stellar systems and the origin of gravitational wave sources.
The successful candidates will have, or be about to obtain, a PhD in a relevant area of theoretical astrophysics, N-body, planetary, or fluid dynamics, or magnetohydrodynamics, and have an established track record of original research and experience of working in collaboration.
The positions are expected to be available from 1 April 2020, but the start date is flexible and could be delayed until October 2020 at the latest.
