The Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) invites applications for several tenure-track positions to strengthen its leadership in key research areas of astronomy and astrophysics. We encourage applications from scientists with an excellent track record of high quality research publications in their respective sub-field, as well as strong evidence of impact and external grant funding. We are particularly interested in the area of numerical MHD modeling of the Sun and of stars, Galactic dynamics and chemical evolution, and astrophysical cosmology.

Salary and benefits are commensurate with those of public service organizations in Germany and include employer contributions to medical and dental insurance, maternity leave, and retirement benefits.

For exceptional candidates with commensurate qualifications a tenured appointment may be considered. The AIP is an equal opportunity employer, values diversity, and particularly encourages women to apply.

The AIP continues the tradition of the Astrophysical Observatory Potsdam and the Berlin Observatory. It is located in the beautiful Potsdam/Babelsberg area, at the South-western border of the Berlin metropolitan area. About 130 scientists work on a variety of astrophysical topics covering the full range from solar physics to cosmology. Potsdam is also the home of the Albert-Einstein Institute for Gravitational Physics, the Physics & Astronomy Department of Potsdam University and several other research institutions.

To apply, please send pdf-file including a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, a statement of research, and contact information for at least three references to the tenure-track2018@aip.de.
