Post-doctoral position in Gravitational Wave Cosmology

Reference: CP3-PostD-GWC-2020
Announced on October 1, 2020.

The CURL group at the IRMP Research Institute in Mathematics and Physics of the Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain) in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium) opens a post-doctoral research position in the field of gravitational wave cosmology starting fall 2021.

Applicants interested in stochastic gravitational wave background, gravitational wave signatures of early universe physics, such as cosmic strings, primordial black holes, cosmic inflation, as well as data analysis for current and future gravitational wave interferometers, such as Pulsar Timing Arrays, LIGO/Virgo and LISA, are particularly encouraged to apply.

Appointment is available for two years.

The position is supported by a joint research program in gravitational wave physics between the CP3 center ( and the CURL group ( at UCLouvain and the STAR institute ( at Université de Liège. Computing resources and support for travelling are excellent.

Letters of application (including a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a brief statement of research interests) and at least two recommendation letters from senior scientists should be submitted on-line, by the 10th of January 2021, at:
