Tenure track position in gravitational wave physics at UIB, Spain

May 01, 2019

The gravitational physics group (http://grg.uib.es) at the Balearic Islands University (UIB) is looking for candidates to apply for a distinguished researcher tenure track position, which has been granted in the framework of the Beatriz Galindo program. The successful candidate will be selected by an international panel.

The deadline for applications is 17:00 CEST, May 24  2019.

The position is initially funded for 4 years, and UIB has committed to open a permanent faculty position in order to integrate the successful candidate as a faculty member of the University into the department of physics once the grant has been completed.

Candidates will be expected to carry out research that broadens the activities of the gravitational physics group within the IAC3 research institute for computational physics (http://iac3.uib.cat) in the field of gravitational wave physics, in particular with a view toward the science of next generation instruments, and to carry out teaching in computational physics.

Requirements for candidates:

- All or part of their professional career should have been developed outside of Spain, with a maximal professional experience outside of Spain (counted after obtaining the PhD) of seven years.
- Candidates should have postdoctoral experience in the field of gravitational wave physics, including astrophysics from gravitational wave sources or cosmology with direct application in this field.

In addition to a description of their research, teaching and transfer of knowledge plans, candidates will have to accredit their professional experience.

The deadline for applications is 17:00 CEST, May 24  2019.
