The Excellence Cluster "Origin and Structure of the Universe" was established at the Technische Universitaet Muenchen (TUM) in October 2006 within the framework of the Excellence Initiative. The interdisciplinary research project unifies the physics faculties of TUM and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) as well as the University Observatory of the LMU, several Max-Planck-Institutes (MPA, MPE, MPP, IPP) and the European Southern Observatory (ESO). The main goal of the Universe Cluster is to solve fundamental questions of physics, astrophysics, cosmology as well as nuclear and particle physics.
As part of our FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM we are looking for excellent young scientists on the postdoc level. Fellows have the opportunity to work independently and potentially pursue an interdisciplinary research program in any research area of the Universe Cluster (theoretical or experimental). Fellowship appointments are for a 3-year term and come with a budget of EUR 5K/year.
Application: Candidates should send a cover letter, a complete curriculum vitae, a PhD certificate, a list of publications, a brief statement of research accomplishments and a research plan. Please upload these separate documents in the job section of the Cluster website www.universe-cluster.de. Please also arrange for 3 letters of recommendation to be sent to email@example.com. Applications from women and candidates with disabilities are especially encouraged and will be given preference to other applicants with equal qualifications. The application deadline is October 31, 2012.
