The numerical relativity group at the University of Jena anticipates the availability of a postdoc position starting September 2011, and a PhD position in April 2011.
The gravity group at Jena includes Marcus Ansorg, Bernd Bruegmann, Reinhard Meinel, and Gerhard Schaefer, and also involves applied mathematician Gerhard Zumbusch. There is the opportunity to participate in a wide range of research activities offered by the SFB/Transregio grant on “Gravitational Wave Astronomy”, see http://wwwsfb.tpi.uni-jena.de. Applicants with a background in numerical relativity, but also in the area of gravitational wave science or associated computational methods are especially encouraged to apply.
For the postdoc position, please submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae with a list of publications, a brief description of research interests, and arrange for three letters of recommendation. For the PhD position, please submit the same except that instead of the letters only a list of potential references is requested. Submission of PDF files is preferred.
Applications should be received no later than January 5, 2011, but applications will be considered until the positions are filled. In a situation where two candidates have otherwise equal qualifications, preference will be given to women, minorities, and handicapped applicants.
