The stellar and exoplanetary physics group at the Institute for Astrophysics (IAG) at the Georg-August-University Göttingen invites applications for
2 Research Assistants
2 PhD Students
We are looking for highly motivated researchers to strengthen our group in the fields of astrophysical observations and theory, and instrument development.
IAG covers research in the fields of extrasolar planets, solar and stellar physics, galactic and extragalactic astrophysics, and cosmology. With an instrument engineering group and qualified workshops, IAG participates in the development of modern astronomical instrumentation, e.g., for ESO’s VLT and ELT. The institute operates local facilities for hardware development, as well as telescopes in Texas and South Africa. The stellar and planetary physics group covers a broad range of research, e.g., stellar activity, low-mass stars, the search for extrasolar planets, and exoplanet atmospheres. We are members of the CARMENES and CRIRES+ consortia with privileged access, and of the ELT instrument HIRES. From Göttingen, our group is carrying out benchmark observations of the Sun.
