Relativistic Astrophysics

(Fixed term for 2 years)

Applications are invited for a Research Fellow in general relativistic astrophysics to work with The Southampton Gravity Group.  You will be expected to undertake research within an STFC-funded project aimed at modelling the dynamics neutron stars in the context of multimessenger astronomy. The emphasis on the project is on the implementation of realistic microphysics in fully relativistic numerical simulations.

You will have a PhD or equivalent in Physics, Mathematics or a related discipline, and have a track record of original research in at least one of the following research areas: neutron-star astrophysics, gravitational-wave theory and numerical relativity.

The University of Southampton is home to a large research group in gravitational physics. The Group currently comprises 9 staff members (Nils Andersson, Leor Barack, Carsten Gundlach, Ian Hawke, Wynn Ho, Ian Jones, Kostas Skenderis, Marika Taylor and James Vickers), 6 postdocs and 14 research students. Research in the group covers topics in black-hole and neutron-star physics, gravitational waves and numerical relativity, with additional expertise in string-inspired gravity and holography.

Applications should include a Curriculum Vitae, including a list of publications; a brief (<1 page) statement of research interests; and the names and addresses of three referees.

This position is tenable from spring or autumn 2013.
