Applications are invited for two postdoctoral positions in the particle astrophysics group at Astrocent, a new international Center of Excellence in Particle Astrophysics in Warsaw, Poland (see below for more information).
Successful applicants will be expected to engage in theoretical research on broadly understood subject of dark matter and related “new physics” models and particle cosmology.
Complete applications received before 1 December 2020 will receive full consideration; however, applications received after that date will be also considered until the positions are filled.
More information can be obtained from Prof. Leszek Roszkowski (email@example.com)
Astrocent (https://astrocent.camk.edu.pl) — Particle Astrophysics Science and Technology Centre — was established on 1 July 2018 following an award of nearly 38 million PLN (nearly 9M Euro, over 10M USD) within the framework of the International Research Agendas Programme of Foundation of Polish Science, see:
At Astrocent, research is focused primarily on the areas of the detection of gravitational waves and dark matter using advanced technological instruments, whose development will be among the prime areas of activity of the Center. However, it is planned to engage in other areas of theoretical and experimental research in particle astrophysics, beyond gravitational waves and dark matter.
Astrocent has developed close collaborative links with several institutions in Europe and outside, in particular with our strategic partners APC (Astroparticle and Cosmology Laboratory) in Paris and the McDonald Institute in Canada. More collaborations are being established.
Currently Astrocent comprises six international research groups of physicists and engineers:
Astrocent is formally a new administrative division of Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences (http://www.camk.edu.pl) – an internationally leading institute in astronomy and astrophysics.
Astrocent is conveniently located in the city center, with easy access from rail stations and airports. The center occupies a suite of spacious and modern labs and offices on the top floor of a modern building (https://www.cziitt.pw.edu.pl/?lang=en) of Warsaw University of Technology (https://www.pw.edu.pl/engpw) in order to foster communication and cooperation with local engineers and physicists, and to enhance scientific and academic environment. The site is also well connected with Physics Department of Warsaw University and the main site of the Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center and other research institutes in Warsaw.
Key responsibilities include:
