The Argelander Institute for Astronomy (AIfA) at the University of Bonn invites applications for two or more postdoctoral positions in astrophysics and cosmology starting in the fall 2023 or any time earlier.
The successful candidate has a strong research background in one or more of the following topics:
- large-scale structure of the Universe
- galaxy redshift surveys
- cluster cosmology
- combination of cosmological probes
- numerical cosmology
- galaxy formation
- cosmic reionisation and/or line intensity mapping
- machine learning in astrophysics
The new team members will work closely with the groups led by Andrina Nicola and Cristiano Porciani and will have access to data from Euclid, LSST, eROSITA, ACT, SO, and FYST among others. For one of the positions, the successful applicant is expected to work closely within LSST DESC for part of the appointment.
The appointments are initially for 2 years, with a possibility for further extensions and include benefits. Salary is paid according to the German civil service scale TV-L E13. German language skills are not required.
Bonn offers a rich environment for astrophysics and cosmology, with over 100 scientists at AIfA, and around 100 additional researchers in the Max Planck Institute for Radioastronomy, which is located in the same building. In addition, Bonn is a pleasant city on the Rhein river. Home to the United Nations campus and other international institutions, it offers a wide cultural program.
Applicants are required to have a PhD in physics, astronomy, or related fields. Materials in support of an application (a single pdf file including a CV, publication list, and a statement of research interests of up to 3 pages) should be submitted electronically to [email protected]. Please ensure that three letters of recommendation are sent directly to the above e-mail address. Review of applications will begin on January 15 and continue until the positions are filled.
