JANUARY 2010 - Multidark Postdoctoral Research Positions

The very high energy gamma-ray astronomy group at IFAE, which is part of the MAGIC and CTA collaborations, is involved in the MULTIDARK project. A call for postdoctoral positions in the different groups of MULTIDARK is currently open, see details below.

Multimessenger Approach for Dark Matter Detection (MULTIDARK) is a Project supported by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation's Consolider-Ingenio 2010 Programme, involving most of the Spanish institutions active on Dark Matter research, and covering all aspects of the subject, theoretical and experimental. It comprises 17 Spanish Research Groups, as well as several foreign members engaged in theoretical, astrophysical, cosmological and experimental aspects of dark matter research. The latter includes theoretical and experimental analyses of direct and indirect detection experiments as varied as ANAIS, ROSEBUD, EURECA, GAW, MAGIC, CTA, Fermi-GLAST, PAMELA, ANTARES, KM3NeT, AUGER, JEM-EUSO, LISA.


The postdoctoral scholars are expected to work with the existing group members. 

We encourage applicants in all areas of dark matter research. The appointment will be for two years, although in special cases 2+1 years can also be offered (third year contingent on successful performance). The position includes some travel funds. 

Candidates should apply online at http://projects.ift.uam.es/multidark/offerspost.php indicating the preferred name(s) of the host Group(s), and including a CV, publication list, statement of research interests, and arrange for three letters of recommendation.

Selection by the MULTIDARK steering committee will be on the basis of demonstrated excellence. Applications received by January 15th, 2010, will receive full consideration for positions starting in 2010. Later applications may also be considered.
