Postdoc, software developer, and tenure track positions at UIB (Mallorca, Spain)

Dec 27, 2021

At the University of the Balearic Islands in Mallorca, Spain, we are
looking to fill postdoctoral, scientific software developer, and
tenure track positions in gravitational wave physics.

Research in the gravitational wave physics group at the Balearic
Islands University (UIB) spans a wide range of topics including
gravitational wave data analysis, waveform modelling and numerical
relativity, and we would like to increase our involvement in the LISA
consortium.

The group consists of PIs Alicia Sintes and Sascha Husa, faculty
members David Keitel and Jaume Carot, postdoctoral researchers Marta
Colleoni, Anna Heffernan, Sayantani Bera, and 6 PhD students as well
as several master and undergraduate students. Further faculty members
in relativity and gravitation include Carlos Palenzuela and Carles Bona.

For the group's web page see http://grg.uib.es.
 

Postdoctoral and scientific software developer positions:

For this call we are seeking:

– applications for several postdoctoral positions in the areas of
gravitational wave physics, including data analysis, detector
characterization, modelling of gravitational-wave sources, numerical
relativity, and related topics in astrophysics, cosmology and
fundamental physics.

– applications for a scientific software developer position,
supporting our research in gravitational wave data analysis and
numerical relativity, and in particular our involvement in the LISA
Consortium.

The starting date can be negotiated, and is possible as early as
spring 2021. Initial appointment will be for 1 year, with renewal for
a second and possibly third year expected, depending on satisfactory
progress.

Applicants for the postdoctoral positions should send a single PDF
including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications,
brief description of research interests and achievements, as well as
arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to
gravity.uib.contact[AT]gmail.com.

Applicants for the software developer position should send a single
PDF including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, list of publications,
brief description of research and software experience and interests,
as well as arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent to
gravity.uib.contact[AT]gmail.com.

The deadline for full consideration is January 5th, 2022, but earlier
submission of application materials is encouraged.
 

Tenure track positions:

We are also looking for candidates interested in applying for the
annual national Spanish call for Ramon y Cajal tenure track positions,
which significantly increases its funding this year, and reserves a
number of positions for candidates with less than 5 years of
postdoctoral experience Candidates need to have obtained their PhD
between January 1 2011 and December 31 2019 (extra time for child care
can be accounted for). While for these positions we do not have an
influence on the decision, we can advise candidates who are interested
in joining the group on preparing their applications and help to
assess chances of success. Furthermore, candidates who obtain a grant
may not be able to join UIB unless we have been contacted before
applying (to guarantee a University commitment).
