Research Scholarships in Astrophysics of Relativistic Jets

Dr. Krzysztof Nalewajko from the Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences (CAMK PAN), as the principal investigator of the research project “Applying magnetic reconnection to relativistic jets” financed by the National Science Center (NCN) through the grant nr  2021/41/B/ST9/04306, announces a call for two 12-month NCN scholarships.

Recipients of the scholarships will be assigned to one of the following research tasks: “Energy density enhancement of reconnection plasmoids and relativistic jets” or “Electromagnetic consequences of filamentary proton loading of relativistic jets”.

Eligible candidates are Ph.D. students of astronomy with experience in high-energy astrophysics and in numerical simulations of relativistic plasmas


Applications should include: (1) a motivation letter (1 page), (2) a CV (including education history and experience in research projects), (3) a list of publications, (4) a signed GDPR declaration [1], and (5) a confirmation of the Ph.D. student status (for candidates outside CAMK PAN). Application can be supported by a separate reference letter.


Applications and reference letters should be sent via e-mail to recruitment@camk.edu.pl by December 13th, 2021.

Application materials will be reviewed by the recruitment committee according to the NCN rules [2].

This call shall be concluded by December 20th, 2021.
