Job description

The Institute for Theoretical Physics (ITP) at Utrecht University is currently looking for a postdoctoral researcher at the interface of theoretical advances in relativistic hydrodynamics with gravitational waves from neutron star binaries. You are going to work in the group of Tanja Hinderer and become member of the interdisciplinary Dutch consortium ‘Probing the phase diagram of quantum chromodynamics'. This is a collaboration of Utrecht University (Profs. Gürsoy, van den Broeck, Snellings, Christakoglou), the University of Amsterdam (Profs. Watts, Nissanke, Mösta) and the University of Groningen (Dr Even).


We are looking for a candidate who is enthusiastic and dedicated and who preferably:

  • holds a PhD degree in physics or a related field by the starting date of the employment;
  • has strong written and oral communication skills in English;
  • has a strong motivation for multidisciplinary research;
  • relevant expertise with dissipative multi-fluid systems, neutron star microphysics, and signatures of matter physics in gravitational waves is a plus.
  • Offer

    We offer a temporary position (1.0 FTE) for three years in an international working environment. The gross salary - depending on previous qualifications and experience - ranges between €2,960 and €4,670 (scale 10 according to the Collective Labour Agreement of Dutch Universities) per month for a full-time employment. Salaries are supplemented with a holiday bonus of 8% and a year- end bonus of 8.3% per year.
