Postdoctoral position in neutron star physics

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center (CAMK PAN) in Warsaw, Poland to start in March 2021 for a period of 8 months.


The successful applicant will collaborate with the group of Dr Brynmor Haskell on numerical implementation of dissipative processes in general relativistic models of neutron stars.

The postdoc will collaborate in the numerical implementation and testing of the relativistic dissipative hydrodynamics.

The position will be funded from a Polish National Science Centre OPUS research grant (2019/33/B/ST9/00942). Funding for travel and research equipment will also be provided.


Candidates are required to have completed a PhD in astronomy, physics or a related discipline before the start date and no earlier than in 2015. We are ideally seeking an applicant with experience with the multifluid formalism of Carter and collaborators, and relativistic formulations of dissipative hydrodynamics.  Interested applicants are encouraged to contact Dr Brynmor Haskell ( to discuss the project further.


Applications (in pdf format) can be sent to

and should include a copy of the applicant’s PhD diploma, a curriculum vitae with a list of publications and a brief statement of research interests and plans (2 pages). Applicants should also arrange for at least two letters of recommendation to be sent to the same address, and send a scan of signed GDPD form.

For full consideration applications should be received by February 5th, 2021.


The review of applications will begin soon after this date and continue until the position is filled.
