Faculty position at Cardiff University

Feb 28, 2020

The School of Physics and Astronomy at Cardiff University invites applications for a faculty position in experimental gravitational-wave physics at the Lecturer level.
Deadline for application: Friday, April 17th, 2020.

This new appointment is part of a long-term expansion of Cardiff University's Gravity Exploration Institute, which was founded in 2018 in recognition of the substantial contributions made by Cardiff researchers to the establishment of gravitational wave astronomy.

Gravity Exploration Institute members have expertise spanning all areas of gravitational-wave astronomy, including numerical relativity, source modeling, data analysis, astrophysical interpretation, experimental gravitational-wave physics, and outreach.

The Institute consists of eight full-time (Fabio Antonini, Katherine Dooley, Stephen Fairhurst, Hartmut Grote, Mark Hannam, Chris North, Vivien Raymond, Patrick Sutton) and two part-time (Bangalore Sathyaprakash, Bernard Schutz) academic staff, 2 research fellows, 7 postdoctoral researchers, 1 research software engineer, and 16 PhD students. Cardiff also has an active programme in transient astronomy / electromagnetic follow-up of gravitational wave events, led by Cosimo Inserra. Our research is supported by the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), the Leverhulme Trust, and the European Horizon 2020 programme.
