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 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).
CIDMA, the research unit Gr@v integrates, has annouced two one year postdoctoral positions starting in September 2020. Candidates should hold a Ph.D. in Mathematics or related areas (the scientific areas of Gr@v are elegible). The application period is May 14th-31st. More details can be found here and here.
