Applications are invited for a Temporary 24-month post - commencing 1 September 2023 of a Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 within UCD School of Mathematics and Statistics.
The Relativity Group at the School of Mathematics and Statistics, University College Dublin, is seeking to recruit a postdoctoral research fellow (Level 1) to work with Dr Christiana Pantelidou. The appointment is for 2 years, starting in September 2023, and is funded by the Royal Society - SFI research grant "Gravitational turbulence in the era of gravitational waves".
The successful candidate will work on non-linear effects in the strong-field regime of gravity in both asymptotically Anti-de-Sitter and asymptotically flat spacetimes, including but not limited to gravitational turbulence, and will explore potential observational implications of these phenomena on gravitational wave signals. Candidates should have demonstrated experience in gravitational physics, and related computational and numerical skills.
This is a research focused role, where the successful candidate will conduct a specified programme of research supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of a Principal Investigator. The primary purpose of the role is to further develop the Fellow's research skills and competences, including the processes of publication in peer-reviewed academic publications, the development of funding proposals, the mentorship of graduate students along with the opportunity to develop your skills in research-led teaching.
