PhD position in accretion flows onto black holes, Frankfurt, Germany

The group of Relativistic Theoretical Astrophysics invites applications for one PhD position to carry out research in Relativistic and Computational Astrophysics, at Frankfurt am Main, Germany.

The candidates should have a MSc in physics or applied mathematics and a strong background in astrophysics, general relativity and have been exposed to the basics of computational physics. Proficiency in a programming language will be considered an important added value.

The successful applicant will be part of a lively research group recently set-up at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at Frankfurt am Main and concentrate on the modelling of accretion flows onto supermassive black holes.

The application should comprise a CV, a list of the courses attended, and a summary of the research carried in the MSc. Applicants should also arrange for two letters of reference to be sent to the address below. Applications will be have to be sent by 28.02.2015 for full consideration. The position is expected to start on 15.04.2015, but earlier or later appointments can be negotiated.

Applications should be made electronically and sent to Luciano Rezzolla (rezzolla[AT]th.physik.uni-frankfurt.de) and CC-ed to Fr. Astrid Steidl: steidl[AT]th.physik.uni-frankfurt.de

Hyperspace has moved to Frankfurt

The transfer over to Frankfurt has been completed and we have managed to avoid a downtime of the service. Two important changes have taken place. First, all members of the *mailing list* have been moved to a new list hosted at Frankfurt; all users have received information about the new passwords and will be unsubscribed from the old one in the near future. Second, for security reasons all members of the *web service* will need to update their passwords; this is easily done at http://hyperspace.uni-frankfurt.de/wp-login.php?action=lostpassword

Again, sorry for any inconvenience this may have produced.

Hyperspace moves to Frankfurt

Hyperspace will move to Frankfurt as a result of my move to the Goethe University. Users will not see any difference in behaviour or use, but the service may be suspended for one day or two as the move takes place (likely in one week time). Any pending post or subscription will be made public as soon as the new server is online. The next bulletin will be sent as usual (Oct. 2nd). I apologize in advance for any inconvenience.
