DAWN Post-doctoral Fellowships
The Cosmic Dawn Center (DAWN) invites applications for the DAWN Post-doctoral Fellowships. The fellowships are intended for outstanding early career scientists whose research falls 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. DAWN Fellows are expected to pursue their own independent, cutting edge research programs, either in theory or observations.
Deadline for applications: January 4, 2021
DAWN is a new Center of Excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation (DNRF), and is located at the Niels Bohr Institute (NBI), University of Copenhagen and at the Space division of the Danish Technical University (DTU-Space). In addition, the center has a number of associate members at major research institutes across Europe, North America, and Australia. DAWN brings together experts in all aspects of early Universe galaxy evolution and is deeply involved in major existing and upcoming surveys with e.g. HST, ALMA, Euclid and JWST, as well as cosmological and zoom in simulations.
For more information on the Center's activities and researchers, please see https://dawn.nbi.ku.dk/.
Dawn Fellowships are for up to three years (2+1). The employment is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2021 or upon agreement with the chosen candidate. Applicants may also be considered for other post-doctoral positions at the Cosmic DAWN Center.
Applications must consist of a CV, Diplomas (Master and PhD degree or equivalent), a list of publications, and a brief research statement that describes research interests, future plans and relevant technical experience. The research statement should not exceed 3 pages (text, figures and references included) with a font size no smaller than 11pt Times New Roman (or equivalent).
The deadline for applications is January 4, 2020, 23:59 GMT +1.
Applications received within the deadline will receive full consideration. Short-listed candidates will be contacted for interview in late January.
The application, in English, must be submitted electronically by clicking APPLY NOW below. Follow the directions for applying carefully.
After the expiry of the deadline for applications, the authorized recruitment manager selects applicants for assessment on the advice of the Interview Committee. You can read about the recruitment process at https://employment.ku.dk/faculty/recruitment-process/.
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.
