DAWN PhD Fellowships at the Cosmic DAWN Center, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen
The Cosmic DAWN Center, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen invites applications for PhD Fellow positions starting in September 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter.
Fellowships are intended for outstanding candidates with a background in astronomy, physics, or related technical disciplines who are interested in doing research within DAWN’s research themes: high-redshift galaxy evolution, epoch of re-ionization, first stars and galaxies, dust and ISM in the early universe and dark matter. Positions are available for three years for candidates holding a MSc.
DAWN is a Center of Excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation (DNRF), and is located at the Niels Bohr Institute (NBI), University of Copenhagen (UCPH) and within The National Space Institute (DTU Space). The center brings together experts in all aspects of early Universe galaxy evolution, is deeply involved in major existing and upcoming surveys with HST, ALMA, Euclid and JWST, as well as cosmological and zoom in simulations.
In addition, the center has a number of associate members at major research institutes across Europe, North America, and Australia. PhD students will have both an advisor in Copenhagen and an external advisor at one of our affiliated research institutes or another major research institute. Students may be expected to spend several months outside of Denmark, which could be at one of our affiliated institutes or another major research institute. Our most recent PhD students have used this time at Cornell, Hawaii, and Oxford Universities.
For more information regarding the PhD position, please contact Sune Toft email@example.com, Gabriel Brammer firstname.lastname@example.org or Pascal Oesch email@example.com. General information about the Cosmic Dawn Center, our activities and researchers is available at http://dawn.nbi.ku.dk.
Within this 3-year period, your key tasks as a PhD student at SCIENCE are to:
- Manage and carry through your research project
- Attend PhD courses
- Write scientific articles and your PhD thesis
Teach and disseminate your research
Deadline: January 15, 2021, 23:59 GMT +1.
The Niels Bohr Institute is part of the faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, and the institute has 6 different addresses in Copenhagen
B15-21 Blegdamsvej: The original institute for physics has 4 teams of scientists besides the management, the administration and technical support. Particle physics, quantum physics, eScience, biophysics and theoretical cosmology.
Niels Bohr Building, Jagtvej 128: Researchers in Astrophysics from DARK, DAWN and the Condensed Matter Physics group.
Tagensvej 16: Here you will find the Physics of Ice Climate and Earth section.
The H. C. Ørsteds Institute at Universitetsparken 5: At this address you will find the nanophysics group and the Center for Quantum Devices.
Geological Museum, Øster Voldgade 5 - 7: At this address you will find the Astrophysics & Planetary Science group.
Building 24 and 25
2100 København Ø.
The scientific employees conduct research, and they also educate the students in astronomy, geophysics, nanoscience and basic physics. Moreover, the institute has a presentation of the research areas and the research results.
The scientists are organised in 10 teams/sections, and in connection with these teams the Niels Bohr Institute has 10 centres. A centre receives an external grant, and so it is possible to employ people for long periods of time.
The Niels Bohr Institute has established "the Niels Bohr International Academy". This academy receives a grant of DKK 10 millions from the Danish state. The purpose of the academy is to attract leading researchers for short - or long periods of time in order to promote and enhance research. "The Niels Bohr International Academy" has i.a. the "Summer Institute" with a strong programme.
In addition, the Niels Bohr Institute has 35 engineers and technicians to assist the scientists with experiments etc. They also maintain the technical infrastructure of the institute. Furthermore, the institute has 35 employeed within the areas of administration, communication, and library.
