Job Announcement Text: 

PhD postions in the fields of stellar and exoplanet spectroscopy and robotic telescopes. Regular working hours will be 23.88 hours per week (remuneration is 60 % of 39.8 hours of pay grade 13 TV-L with a temporary contract of initially 3 years). The starting dates are negotiable but are expected to be around Dec 2022. PhD student candidates will have a Master’s degree.
 
We offer a young and dynamic work environment with access to high-precision spectrographs and telescopes in our institute and at international observatories such as the ESO-VLT, Calar Alto observatory, and McDonald Observatory. Research at IAG combines theoretical and observational work in stellar and extragalactic astrophysics, solar physics, extra-solar planets, cosmology, instrument development as well as other fields. The institute is involved in the CARMENES exoplanet survey, the new infrared high-resolution spectrograph CRIRES+, the integral field spectrograph MUSE at ESO/VLT, as well as the Hobby Eberly Telescope. Göttingen is a historic university city with a vibrant student population situated close to the Harz mountains in central Germany.
 
The institute operates the two 1.2m MONET telescopes at SAAO and McDonald Observatory, and a solar telescope for precision spectroscopy. We are part of the MUSE Guaranteed Time Program. PhD projects are offered in the following fields: (i) precision spectroscopy of the Sun with the goal to improve exoplanet research with solar benchmark observations, (ii) analysis of data from the MUSE spectrograph, and (iii) frontend design and automatization of MONET/S with its new spectrograph MORISOT.
 
The University of Göttingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply. Disabled persons with equivalent aptitude will be given preference.
