Expressions of interest are invited for research fellowships in Gravitational Physics at Niels Bohr International Academy for a fixed period of up to three years, with a preferred starting date in the fall of 2023.

We seek highly motivated and outstanding individuals who will develop research programs focused on computations in general relativity based on modern methods of quantum field theory techniques for amplitudes and effective field theories. We therefore especially welcome individuals with prior knowledge of scattering amplitudes, effective field theories, and the double-copy link between gauge theories and gravity. We also seek expressions of interest from individuals with a strong background in general relativity and with an interest in the new links to quantum field theory. A common theme is gravitational wave predictions from the Post-Minkowskian expansion of general relativity and the large variety of different computational techniques.

The particle physics group at Niels Bohr International Academy working in this subject includes Emil Bjerrum-Bohr, Gang Chen, Poul H. Damgaard, Hjalte Frellesvig, Zhengwen Liu, and Andres Luna. There are close ties to the newly formed group on Strong Gravity led by Vitor Cardoso as well as to the junior research groups in gravitational astrophysics led by Daniel D'Orazio and Johan Samsing. New links to work on neutron star physics on the basis of gravitational wave detection are also emerging with the astroparticle physics group of Irene Tamborra. There are tantalizing connections to other aspects of gravitational physics currently investigated at the theoretical particle physics group of the Niels Bohr Institute. The full Gravity Group at Niels Bohr International Academy has around 40 researchers from junior to senior levels, and a very active and dynamic program of visitors, workshops, conferences, PhD-schools, seminars, and informal group meetings.

The Niels Bohr International Academy functions as a primary center for fundamental research, including theoretical and computational astrophysics, gravitational astrophysics, high energy particle physics, particle astrophysics, condensed matter physics, theoretical quantum optics, and biophysics. It continues the Niels Bohr Institute spirit of internationalism and excellence in physics.

Postdoctoral Fellows receive a competitive salary (including pension) and funds for travel and computing. Generous parental leave, state-subsidized childcare, vacation, and full medical care are provided to employees in Denmark. A favorable tax scheme is generally granted to international researchers.

The University of Copenhagen wishes to reflect the diversity of society and welcomes expressions of interest from all qualified individuals regardless of personal background. The primary criterion for the evaluation is the excellence of research.

To guarantee full consideration, the requested material should be uploaded before December 15, 2022.
