Post-doctoral position ("Assegno di ricerca") at Urbino University

We just opened a call for a post-doc fellowship ("assegno di
ricerca") at the University of Urbino, on prospects for applying atom interferometry to the detection of gravitational waves.

The fellowship is funded by the Ministry of University (PRIN programme) and by the local Department, in synergy with groups of the Universities of Firenze and Bologna and with INFN and INGV.

The successful candidate will spend about half of her/his time on the simulation of atom interferometers, and the other half on developing the science case; in this respect, a strong synergy with LSC-Virgo data analysis is expected.

Details are available at

The position is for one year renewable; funds are already available at least for a second year.

Deadline for applications is June 12th, 2017.

Anybody interested is welcome to contact me (

Best Regards

Andrea Viceré
