Dear friends and colleagues,

The gravitational wave astronomy group at UWA is now accepting applications for prospective domestic PhD students starting in 2021 with a deadline to submit applications of October 30 2020. Please circulate this email to any prospective students who may be interested.

The gravitational wave astronomy group at UWA has opportunities for students interested in real-time detection of gravitational waves using the world-leading SPIIR pipeline, one of only 5 real-time search pipelines in the world. Students will take part in the detection and followup of gravitational wave events.

In addition, we also have a variety of projects available that encompass GW-EM inference, machine learning, GPU optimization, multimessenger astronomy, high-performance computing, and instrumentation.

Students will join the LIGO-Virgo Scientific collaboration and OzGrav, and will have opportunity to collaborate with scientists around the world and within Australia, including with ICRAR-UWA and ICRAR-Curtin, MWA, ASKAP and more.

More information about available projects can be found on the website https://protect-au.mimecast.com/s/oOTECmO5gluVDgPKiGq4ot?domain=gravity.uwa.edu.au or by contacting Dr. Fiona Panther (fiona.panther at uwa.edu.au) or Prof. Linqing Wen (linqing.wen at uwa.edu.au).

Gamma-ray bursts are the most luminous electromagnetic transients in the Universe and are observed out to incredible distances. Combining the data from multi-wavelength observations over the last two decades have provided valuable insights into these bursts.
