 The High Energy Astrophysics group at Universitat de Barcelona offers a PhD grant to join the group. The PhD student would gather multi-wavelength observations of galactic and/or transient sources and work on the interpretation and modelling of the data. He or she would become a member of the MAGIC Collaboration (and possibly of the CTA Consortium) and conduct observation shifts at the Canary Island of La Palma.

Our grup has experience in a multidisciplinary approach to high-energy processes in galactic and extragalactic sources with astrophysical outflows. The observational studies are conducted using forefront ground-based and satellite-born facilities such as VLA, EVN, ESO telescopes and GTC, Chandra and XMM, Agile and Fermi or MAGIC. The theoretical studies are carried out through numerical and semi-analytical modeling (radiation processes, magnetohydrodynamics).

We offer a pre-doctoral contract of up to 4 years in total funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation through the “Programa Estatal de Promoción del Talento y su Empleabilidad en I+D+I” (FPI). This position is associated to the R+D project PID2019-105510GB-C31.

Interested people should apply from 13 to 27 of October through the URL of the Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación.

Suitable candidates are those who are enrolled or admitted to a doctoral program for the 2020/2021 academic year at the time of submission of the application or that are in a position to be on the date the contract is formalized.

ICCUB offers and promotes a diverse and inclusive environment (for additional information please see the Diversity, equity and inclusion Commission) and strongly encourages women and underrepresented minorities in physical sciences to apply.

Inquiries about the scientific aspects of the contract should be addressed to
