Deadline:  2024-05-21

Location:  Potsdam, Germany

The “Astrophysical and Cosmological Relativity” (ACR) department at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute, AEI) in Potsdam announces the opening of several postdoctoral appointments, which will be available at different levels, depending on experience and seniority, and can last from 2 to 5 years. These appointments will be in the areas of data analysis and its interface with waveform modeling for the recently adopted space-based gravitational-wave detector LISA. More specifically, the work will encompass research for the LISA Global Fit and Waveform Generator and it is mostly supported by the German Space Agency (Deutsches Zentrum fuer Luft- und Raumfahrt, DLR) and the recently awarded Max-Planck-Society research project “Delivering LISA Science in Germany”.

Data processing for LISA will be coordinated at the European level through the Distributed Data Processing Center (DDPC). DLR is committed to contribute to the DDPC, and the ACR department will be leading the German contributions to the Global Fit and Waveform Generator.

Candidates are encouraged to apply as soon as possible. The deadline for full consideration is May 21, 2024, including reception of reference letters. The anticipated start date of the positions is Fall 2024. Applications will be considered until all positions are filled.
