The Oskar Klein Centre for Cosmoparticle Physics at Stockholm University is announcing five postdoctoral research positions on research addressing fundamental questions about the universe. The Centre houses research groups from Stockholm University and KTH Royal Institute of Technology. The Centre hosts a vibrant research programme on dark matter, dark energy, transient and multimessenger astrophysics, structure formation, and related particle physics questions, including LHC-based studies. Theoretical activities at the Centre include particle and astroparticle phenomenology, neutrino theory, gravitation and string theory.


Postdoctoral fellowships are available in the following areas: 


Data Science with LSST: up to two positions to work on large-scale structure or time-domain cosmology using advanced statistical inference and machine learning methods, within the LSST Dark Energy Science Collaboration with Hiranya Peiris, Jens Jasche, Ariel Goobar, Jesper Sollerman. Deadline: 15 Jan 2021 (advert)


Axion Theory and Astrophysics: one position to work on theoretical and phenomenological aspects of axions and similar particles, with David Marsh. Deadline: 1 December 2020 (advert)


Particle Astrophysics and Dark Matter Searches: one joint theoretical/observational position to work on cosmic-ray and gamma-ray astrophysics, with a particular focus on using cosmic-ray and gamma-ray data to constrain dark matter, with Tim Linden. Deadline: 1 December 2020 (advert)


Theoretical Multi-messenger Astrophysics: one position to work on modelling multi-messenger aspects of sources that produce both gravitational and electromagnetic waves with Stephan Rosswog, targeting relativistic (magneto-)hydrodynamics, nucleosynthesis and/or radiative transfer. Deadline: 15 Jan 2021 (advert)


Contact details and the application procedure for each set of positions can be found in the individual links above. For general information you may also contact the Director of the Oskar Klein Centre, Hiranya Peiris.
