Gr@v is a team of researchers, based at the Mathematics and Physics Department of Aveiro University, Portugal, working on strong gravity, astrophysics and high energy physics. The group was established in 2010. In January 2015 Gr@v integrated the FCT funded CIDMA research unit (UIDB/04106/2020 and UIDP/04106/2020), as the Gravitational Geometry and Dynamics research group. The group scientific coordinator is C. Herdeiro.
A call for a 1 year postdoctoral grant in High Energy Physics, within the research grant “From Higgs phenomenology to the unification of fundamental interactions", PTDC / FIS-PAR / 31000/2017, is open from the 19th of April to the 14th of May 2021. See the eracareers announcement (in Portuguese and English) here.
C. Herdeiro was the invited speaker of the Tübingen Einstein seminar on April 16 2021.
Celebrating the 2020 Physics Nobel Prize for Black Holes, here is an outreach article published in Gazeta de Física (published by the Portuguese Physics Society) by C. Herdeiro. The article pdf can be found in attachment.
A call for a 2 years postdoctoral grant in Strong Gravity, within the research grant “Testing the Kerr hypothesis with gravitational waves and lensing", PTDC / FIS-AST / 3041/2020, is open from 1 to 30 April 2021. See attached document for details (in Portuguese) or the eracareers announcement (in Portuguese and English) here.
Celebrating the international day of Mathematics, March 14th, which is also Einstein's birthday, C. Herdeiro gave an outreach talk in the Maths Dept. of Aveiro on "Pi and Einstein: from the Universe of Geometry to the Geometry of the Universe". It can be seen here (in Portuguese).
Within the context of the European COST Action GWverse, the community has sumarized the state of the art and propects for the future in a comprehensive roadmap: Black holes, gravitational waves and fundamental physics: a roadmap. The GWverse roadmap, co-authored by our group, has been selected by the Editorial Board of Classical and Quantum Gravity (CQG) as one of the journal's Highlights of 2019-2020.
The article "Traversable wormholes in Einstein-Dirac-Maxwell theory", recently published in Phys. Rev. Lett. as Editor's suggestion, co-authered by Gr@v member Eugen Radu, was featured in Physics.
