Applications are invited for one postdoctoral position in the field of gravitational waves and numerical relativity at the University of Jena. The position is associated with the research group of Prof. Sebastiano Bernuzzi at the Theoretical Physics Institute Jena and funded by Jena FSU. The successful candidate is expected to work on the topic of compact binaries in general relativity, including computational aspects in numerical relativity, gravitational waveform modeling and data-analysis applications. The group is part of the Virgo Collaboration and there is the possibility to join and participate to the LIGO-Virgo gravitational-wave astronomy programme. The group is also part of the computational relativity (CoRe) collaboration.

The appointment will be for two years. Candidates with experience in analytical and numerical relativity, computational astrophysics, gravitational-wave modeling and data analysis are particularly encouraged to apply. 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 by June 1st, 2020, but will be considered until the positions are filled. Starting date can be as early as December 2020 and no later than February 2021. Please send applications to:
Theoretisch-Physikalisches Institut
Friedrich-Schiller-Universitaet Jena
Max Wien Platz 1
D-07743 Jena, Germany
