Job Vacancies

Currently I have an opening for a 4-year PhD position to work on multi-wavelength observations of X-ray binaries. You can find a brief project description here, and details on the application procedure here. The application deadline is November 16, 2020.

Note that I am also very much open to hosting PhD for extended research visits. Get in touch if you would like to explore possibilities. Check my student page for opportunities of visiting my group as a (post-)master student.

At present I am not advertising any postdoc positions. However, there are several post-doctoral fellowship opportunities to come to Amsterdam. Two excellent schemes are:

1. The Veni fellowship of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research. This grant is intended for talented post-doctoral researchers in an early phase of their career (within 3 years since their PhD – extension clauses may apply). It allows for 3 years of independent research and includes generous salary, travel and computing funds. To apply for this fellowship, you should already have a PhD degree or have your thesis submitted and approved. The yearly application deadline is in (early!) January.

2. The Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowship of the European Commission. This grant allows for 1-2 years of independent research and includes generous salary, travel and computing funds. To take this fellowship to a Dutch research institution, you should not have conducted research in the Netherlands for more than 12 months in the past 3 years. The yearly application deadline is in early September.

I have personal experience with applying for both of these schemes and would be more than happy to support a strong candidate that is interested to join my research group. If interested in these opportunities, feel free to contact me.
