During this PhD project the candidate will develop a unique expertise in observing and interpreting polarised radio data from intergalactic filaments, with the aim of getting a first detection of magnetic fields in cosmic filaments. 
  Candidates with a strong background in physics, astronomy and radio astronomy are encouraged to apply. The candidate will be supervised by Prof. Daniele Dallacasa  and Dr. Franco Vazza.

MAGCOW - The ​​​Magnetised Cosmic Web

  ​​​ This project is funded by the European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant no.714196 MAGCOW-The Magnetised Cosmic Web, active from 2017 to 2022.
The Main Host Insitution is the University of Bologna , and the Secondary Host is the University of Hamburg.
  
MAGCOW is designed to investigate the​​​ origin of extragalactic magnetic fields , combining state-of-the-art cosmological simulations and radio observations.

The Principal Investigator is   Franco Vazza.

MAGCOW will recruit 3 Post-Doc Fellows and 3 PhD Students during its 5 years of funding.

The overall theme of the research topic is the simulation of extragalactic magnetic fields in cosmological simulations, and the study of possible observational diagnostics to assess their origin with forthcoming radio surveys. The candidate will be supervised by Prof. Marcus Brüggen and Dr. Franco Vazza.
CLOSED!

  This project will study the spatial and energy evolution of relativistic electrons accelerated by cosmic shocks, and their radio emission. This project will develop and the optimise the numerical algorithms to model the energy evolution of electrons, combined with numerical methods developed in MAGCOW.  The selection process is centralised by the University of Bologna, hence applicants must follow the instructions given in the following links:
