Deadline:  2020-09-14

Location:  Jena, Germany

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in numerical general relativity at the University of Jena. The appointment is associated with the research group of Prof. Bernd Bruegmann at the Theoretical Physics Institute Jena. There is the opportunity to participate in a wide range of research activities, including the Research Training Group 2522 “Strong Dynamics and Criticality in Quantum and Gravitational Systems”. The group is also part of the computational relativity (CoRe) collaboration.

The position is funded by DFG for two years. An extension may be possible depending on performance and availability of funds. The successful candidate is expected to work on numerical relativity and associated computational and mathematical methods. This project is embedded in the larger context of compact binaries and gravitational
wave science.

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 no later than September 14, 2020, but will be considered until the position is filled. Starting date is e.g. November 2020. In a situation where two candidates have otherwise equal qualifications, preference will be given to handicapped applicants.

Please send applications as a single PDF with “Postdoc NumRel” in the subject line to:[AT]
