A suitably qualified postdoctoral researcher is sought for a project on self-consistent analysis of black hole horizons and their observational signatures. The researcher will work at the Department of Physics and Astronomy/ the Research Centre for Astronomy, Astrophysics and Astrophotonics in close collaboration with A/Prof. Daniel Terno and Prof. Robert Mann (at the University of Waterloo) and a team of HDR students.

The research will focus on quantum aspects of physical black holes, collapse models that may lead to black hole formation and characteristics of ultra-compact objects, such as quasi-normal modes. The researcher will develop the modelling codes and will have primary responsibility for at least one project in this program. The researcher will contribute to other theoretical components of the project, including the analysis of results, development of new ideas, and preparation of manuscripts for publication. The researcher will be also involved in assisting with supervision of graduate students.
