A  four-year PhD  position  funded  by the  Spanish  Ministry  of Science  and Innovation  is offered  through the  FPI Program  associated with  the project "Jets, Kilonovas and Gravitational Waves: linking numerical simulations of binary neutron stars mergers to multimessenger observations", with  reference PID2019-110301GB-I00 (PIs: C. Palenzuela and J. Massó).

The successful  candidate will  work under the  supervision of  Carlos Palenzuela. Her/his research will focus on the  study, through numerical simulations, of the coalescence of binary compact objects, paying especial attention to the radiation that they emit in multiple bands (i.e., gravitational, electromagnetic and neutrinos).  The project is both theoretically and computationally oriented, and will require advanced notions of General Relativity, Magneto-Hydro-Dynamical simulations and computational methods.

Candidates should apply from 13 to  27 of October through the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation web here.

Eligible candidates should  be 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.

People  interested   in  the  PhD   position  should  contact  Carlos Palenzuela (

The UIB-IAC3 promotes a diverse and inclusive environment and encourages women and minorities to apply.
