PhD fellow in Particle Astrophysics at NBIA and DARK, the Niels Bohr Institute

The Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a PhD scholarship in Particle Astrophysics commencing on 1 September 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Description of the scientific environment
The AstroNu group is based at the Niels Bohr International Academy and DARK, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen. The Niels Bohr International Academy is a young initiative committed to fostering the traditions of internationalism, interdisciplinarity and excellence in physics, which characterize the Niels Bohr Institute. It functions as a primary center for fundamental research including theoretical and computational astrophysics, cosmology, high energy particle physics, particle astrophysics, multi-messenger astrophysics, condensed matter physics, quantum optics, and biophysics. Areas of research of DARK include, but are not limited to: observations, simulations and theory of astrophysical transients and cosmic explosions, multi-messengers astrophysics, high-redshift galaxies, dark matter and dark energy, black holes, and cosmic dust.

Project description
Neutrinos are weakly interacting particles playing a fundamental role in astrophysical environments. Because of their feeble interacting nature, neutrinos escape unimpeded from their sources, hence being powerful messengers of extreme astrophysical sites not otherwise accessible. We are interested in unveiling the nature of these puzzling particles and at using them as messengers of the engine behind the most energetic events in our Universe.

Highly motivated, outstanding candidates interested in research in theoretical particle astrophysics and multi-messenger astrophysics are encouraged to apply.

Principal supervisor is professor Irene Tamborra, Niels Bohr International Academy and DARK, Niels Bohr Institute, tamborra@nbi.ku.dk, Direct Phone: + 4535333227.
