Applications are invited for two postdoctoral positions in the field of gravitational waves and numerical relativity at the University of Jena. The positions are associated with the research group of Prof. Sebastiano Bernuzzi at the Theoretical Physics Institute Jena. One position is funded by ERC-StG grant “BinGraSp”, the other by Jena FSU. The researchers are expected to work on the broad topic of compact binaries in general relativity, including computational aspects in numerical relativity, gravitational waveform modeling and data-analysis applications. The successful candidates have the opportunity to join the Virgo Collaboration and participate to the LIGO-Virgo gravitational-wave astronomy programme. The group is also part of the computational relativity (CoRe) collaboration.
The appointment will be initially for one year with possible extension up to three years. Candidates with experience in analytical and numerical relativity, gravitational-wave modeling and data analysis are particularly encouraged to apply.
Please submit a cover letter, a curriculum vitae with a list of publications, a brief description of research interests, and a list of three potential referees, who may be contacted separately. Applications should be received by October 1st, 2019, but will be considered until the positions are filled. Starting date can be as early as November 2019 and no later than Spring 2020.
Please send applications to:
Max Wien Platz 1
D-07743 Jena, Germany
