The DFG Research Training Group “Models of Gravity” invites applications for a Postdoc position in Theoretical Physics, salary group (Entgeltgruppe) 13 TV-L, to be appointed on April 1st 2012. The position which is located at the University Oldenburg is limited up to two years.
The Research Training Group consists of gravity groups working at the Universities of Bremen, Oldenburg, Bielefeld, Hannover, Copenhagen, as well as at the Jacobs University Bremen. We intend to obtain a better understanding of Einstein’s General Relativity and of generalised theories of gravity as given by, e.g., string theory. These investigations are also related to observations. More information can be found on the website www.models-of-gravity.org
Responsibilities and Duties:
The successful applicant will have the opportunity to continue her/his academic career in theoretical physics in the area of gravitational physics. She/he is expected to contribute to the teaching programme of the Research Training Group.
The applicant is required to have a PhD in Mathematics or Physics and should have strong expertise in General Relativity and numerical solutions of the Einstein field equations.
The University Oldenburg aims, in particular, to promote women within the scope of the statutory provisions and, hence, emphatically invites qualified women to apply for this position. Severely disabled applicants are given preferential consideration in the event of equal qualification. Applicants with a migration background are highly welcome.
