he Institute for Theoretical Physics (ITP) at the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main invites applications for a Junior-Professor Faculty Position (W1) in Theoretical Gravitational-Wave Physics to be filled at the earliest possible date. The position is funded in the context of the DFG-funded CRC-TR 211 “Strong-interaction matter under extreme conditions” (https://th.physik.uni-frankfurt.de/~strongmatter).

We are looking for an early-career researcher with an outstanding research record in the field of gravitational-wave physics and its connections to neutron stars and nuclear physics. Participation in current and future collaborative-research initiatives of the Department of Physics, as well as interdisciplinary cooperation within the Faculties of Science is expected.

The ideal candidate has a PhD in Theoretical Physics and will be able to teach Theoretical Physics at all levels, including advanced courses in Theoretical Astrophysics and Gravitational Physics.

The position is for 6 years, with an evaluation after the first three years, but tenure and promotion to W2 or W3 level is possible after successful evaluation.
