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 research grant in the fields of strong gravity/particle physics, for a M.Sc. holder, is open until October 13th 2020. See the call in the attached file or in the eracareers portal.
ENAA 2020, the 30th National Meeting on Astronomy and Astrophysics took place, online, from 9-11 September. S. Anton was a member of the organizing committee and C. Herdeiro one of the invited speakers. More info here.
A call for applications for two post-doctoral positions under the research grant PTDC/FIS-OUT/28407/2017 (PI C. Herdeiro) are open until September 30th. See the Eracareers call here and also attached (in Portuguese).
A small Workshop on Compact Objects, Gravitational Waves and Deep Learning will take place at the University of Aveiro (Mathematics Department) from Sep. 21-25, 2020. More info here.
The paper "EHT Constraint on the Ultralight Scalar Hair of the M87 Supermassive Black Hole" by P. Cunha, C. Herdeiro and E. Radu, was selected as one of the 2019 Editor's Choice of the journal Universe.
The U. Aveiro Research Summit took place on 24-26 June 2020. Our group contribute with four student pitches (by A. Pombo, J. Delgado, L. Ventura and J. Oliveira). This year's edition of the Reseach@UA magazine included one Gr@v article as a 2019 reseach highlight and two Gr@v papers in the top 10 cited papers (2014-2019).
