The selected candidate will be involved in the development of time-frequency based clustering scheme for specific class of gravitational wave transients. These transients include compact binaries with black-holes and neutron stars in circular as well as eccentric orbits, exploding stars, accreting systems etc. which will be potential systems for upcoming observational runs of LIGO-Virgo detectors.

The appointment is expected to commence immediately. Candidates with expertise in general relativity, gravitational wave physics, and statistical signal processing are encouraged to apply. Candidates is expected to hold a Ph.D. in Physics, Astrophysics, Gravity, Gravitational Waves or related areas. Candidate with Ph.D. in Engineering faculty with sufficient experience in statistical signal processing, data science or machine learning may be considered. Candidates who have submitted the Thesis may be considered. Strong preference will be given to candidates with sufficient coding experience with C, C++ and Python. The selected candidate will visit APC, Paris and is expected to work closely with the members of APC, Paris.

The Astronomy, Cosmology and Gravity group at IIT Bombay has experts working in multimessenger astronomy, gravitational wave data analysis as we well as astrophysics, black hole physics as well as cosmology. For more details, please visit
