The Division of Observational Relativity and Cosmology at the Albert Einstein Institute in Hannover invites applications from outstanding post-doctoral scientists interested in using open gravitational-wave data to further our understanding of astrophysics, gravity and the Universe. The division is led by Prof. Bruce Allen and senior scientist Dr. Badri Krishnan and works closely with the independent research groups “Searching for Continuous Gravitational Waves” led by Dr. Maria Alessandra Papa, and “Binary Merger Observations and Numerical Relativity” led by Dr. Frank Ohme.
The Albert Einstein Institute in Hannover plays an active role in the analysis and interpretation of gravitational wave data, and provides a lively and friendly environment and world-class computing
facilities. More information can be found at
The ideal candidate should have an excellent academic track record. Prior experience in gravitational wave data analysis and/or computing would be helpful but is not a requirement. The initial appointment will be for two years with the expectation of an extension to a third year subject to satisfactory performance. Applications including a CV, publication list and a brief research statement should be submitted by email to jobs-gw-han[AT]aei.mpg.de by January 1st 2019. Candidates should also arrange that three letters of reference be sent to jobs-gw-han[AT]aei.mpg.de by the referees. Applications will be considered as they are received and the start date is flexible.
