More info:  external link

Location:  Jena, Germany

The scientific computing group at the University Jena expects a postdoctoral opening beginning in 2012. The position will be within the Collaborative Research Center SFB/Transregio 7 Gravitational Wave Astronomy, including the gravity group at Jena Marcus Ansorg, Bernd Brügmann, Reinhard Meinel, and Gerhard Schäfer. There is the opportunity to participate in a wide range of research activities offered by the SFB/Transregio, see

The successful candidate will work on numerical and computational methods for solving Einstein’s field equations of general relativity in a broader sense, which may include topics like numerical discretization schemes (e.g. discontinuous Galerkin method) or parallel computing (domain decomposition methods, GPU computing), see

Applicants should email a curriculum vitae including full list of publications and a brief description of research interests. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.
