The Cardiff University Gravity Exploration Institute (http://www.astro.cardiff.ac.uk/research/gravity/) seeks applications to fill the position of Postdoctoral Research Associate in observational gravitational-wave astronomy.
Application deadline: Thursday, 3 February 2022. Interview are expected to be held mid-February 2022.
Two positions are available:
Vacancy 13326BR: The successful applicant will lead Cardiff’s astrophysical interpretation of compact binary coalescence signals in data from the LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA network. Particular focus will be placed on obtaining the most reliable and accurate inferences, taking into account both detector and signal modelling complexities. Candidates with experience in using machine learning techniques are encouraged to apply. For informal enquiries about the post please contact Vivien Raymond (RaymondV(at)cardiff.ac.uk).
Vacancy 13328BR: The successful applicant will lead the development of Cardiff’s machine-learning pipeline for the low-latency detection of generic gravitational-wave transient signals in data from the LIGO-Virgo-KAGRA network. Candidates with experience in using machine learning techniques in gravitational-wave astronomy are encouraged to apply. For informal enquiries about the post please contact Prof. Patrick Sutton (SuttonPJ1(at)cardiff.ac.uk).
Both positions are full-time, fixed-term for 2 years and available immediately.
