Applications are invited for one postdoctoral positions in the field of numerical relativity and computational relativistic astrophysics with focus on neutron star mergers at the University of Jena.

The position is associated with the research group of Prof. Sebastiano Bernuzzi at the Institute for Theoretical Physics, and it is funded by the European Research Council consolidator grant 101043372 ‘InspiReM ‘ of the Horizon programme. The successful researcher is expected to work on simulations of binary neutron star mergers in general relativity including high-performance computing, magnetohydrodynamics, microphysics, nuclear physics aspects, radiation transport, and ab-initio modeling of astrophysical observables. Candidates with demonstrated expertise in these areas are particularly encouraged to apply.

Applications should be received by December 1st, 2022, but will be considered until the positions are filled. The starting date of the project is April 1st, 2023. The appointment will be initially for two years but funds up to five years are available.

Applications should be sent to:
