The Albert Einstein Institute in Hannover is offering positions for post-doctoral researchers in either the independent research group Binary Merger Observations and Numerical Relativity, led by Dr. Frank Ohme, or the Compact Binary Coalescence group led by Dr. Alexander Nitz which is part of the Observational Relativity and Cosmology division under Prof. Bruce Allen. The research focus is on the detection and interpretation of gravitational-wave observations made by current and future gravitational-wave observatories, as well as the numerical and analytical modeling of colliding binaries. The start date is negotiable but can be as early as spring 2022.
We are looking for highly motivated post-doctoral scientists to contribute to the search, interpretation and modeling of gravitational-wave signals. You should have a PhD in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science or related fields, with experience in one or more of the following research areas:
* Gravitational-wave data analysis.
* Gravitational-wave theory.
* Numerical simulations of black hole or neutron star binaries.
* Bayesian parameter estimation methods.
* Astrophysics of binary formation and merger.
* Signal processing and signal reduction.
* Approximation theory.
