Postdoctoral position in Astrophysical Relativity at the AEI, Potsdam, Germany

The Astrophysical Relativity division at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational physics (Albert Einstein Institute) in Potsdam, Germany, anticipates the filling of one postdoctoral position within the “numerical-relativity” group. The numerical-relativity group is primarily but not exclusively concerned with the numerical solution of the Einstein equations and with the modelling of compact objects, such as neutron stars and black holes. The successful candidate is expected to have experience in the modelling of neutron stars and black holes, relativistic hydrodynamics and MHD. To learn more about the group, please visit:

The position is for one year and renewable up to three depending on satisfactory progress. The appointments are expected to begin around July 1st, 2013, but a later date is also possible. The deadline for applications is Jan. 31st, 2013. Applications can be made online via the web interface at

Applicants should upload a CV, a publication list, a research summary, and indicate the names of at least 3 referees. The Albert Einstein Institute is an equal-opportunity employer and hires on the basis of merit. Applications from individuals with disabilities, minorities, and women are encouraged.
