Open positions: Oskar Klein Fellowships
The Oskar Klein Centre at Stockholm University has funding from the Swedish Research Council for a long-term programme addressing fundamental questions about the Universe. The Centre is located at the AlbaNova campus in Stockholm, which houses research groups from Stockholm University and the Royal Institute of Technology. In the Centre, theoretical, experimental, and observational research is performed. The scientific profile of the Centre includes activities related to dark matter, dark energy, extreme objects (for example, supernovae and GRBs), structure formation and related particle physics questions, including LHC-based studies. The programme particularly emphasizes the interaction between these fields of activity and profits from the rich and stimulating research environment comprising theoretical physics and astrophysics as well as a large range of observational and experimental research programmes.
The Centre is now announcing 2-year postdoctoral positions, "Oskar Klein Fellowships". We are looking for fellows who are active within any field that integrates with the activities at the Oskar Klein Centre. The activity may therefore be in
in a general sense, either theoretical or observational/experimental, including dark matter-related research at particle accelerators, or specifically in the area of
Detection of supernovae or other transient objects,
which for cosmological supernovae is already a strong field at the Oskar Klein Centre, and where an effort in detection of more nearby transient objects is currently planned at the Centre.
Deadline for applications is December 3, 2012.
For further information you may also contact the research director of the Oskar Klein Centre, Lars Bergström (firstname.lastname@example.org) or its vice director, Claes Fransson (email@example.com).
