Post-doctoral research position in GR radiative hydrodynamics

The Copernicus Astronomical Center is announcing an opening for a one-year research position with Professor Włodek Kluźniak for work on accretion flows and jets. Candidates must hold a Ph.D. , must have a strong mathematical background and must have won recognition for their work at least at the national level. Preference will be given to recent doctoral degree recipients.


The position is financed by a grant of the Polish National Science Center. Remuneration will be commensurate with experience and is expected to be competitive in the Polish academia.


The successful candidate will have demonstrable experience of successful research in the general-relativistic hydrodynamics of luminous compact objects.


The application deadline is December 1, 2016.

The expected employment term is January 2017 through May 2018.


Applications, including letters of reference may be submitted electronically, preferably in pdf format, at wlodek@camk.edu.pl or by post at
