The “Computational Relativistic Astrophysics” division at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (the Albert Einstein Institute) at Potsdam led by Masaru Shibata announces the opening of several postdoc appointments. The postdoctoral position will be available at different levels, depending on experience and seniority, and can last for different number of years.
The “Computational Relativistic Astrophysics” division will be composed of director (Masaru Shibata), one group leader (Kenta Kiuchi), one senior scientist (Shinya Wanajo), and 4 postdocs in January 2019. Now, this division focuses primarily on several research topics including numerical relativity with matter, modeling of gravitational waveforms for neutron-star mergers and supernovae, modeling of electromagnetic counterparts of gravitational-wave sources, r-process nucleosynthesis, and studies for the formation processes of a variety of black holes. However, research for a variety of other topics in computational astrophysics (even for non-relativistic astrophysics) is also encouraged.

The deadline for full consideration is December 16th, 2018. The positions are available from any time after April 2019.
The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
