The Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the area of galaxy formation and evolution. The successful candidate will work with Dr Simona Vegetti on gravitational lensing as a probe of galaxy formation. The position is funded through a European Starting Grant awarded to Dr Vegetti.
Observational and numerical projects are both available, and applicants with expertise in either of these fields are invited to apply. As part of the position, the postdoctoral researcher will also be involved in the supervision of PhD students within the group.
The successful candidate will join the vibrant research environment of the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics in Garching. The position comes with a generous travel budget and the opportunity to travel to the US, UK and the Netherlands to work with collaborators.
The position is available from January 2019, but the starting date is negotiable. Interested candidates are invited to apply by sending a curriculum vitae, a publication list, a three-page statement of their scientific experience and interests to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. The candidates should also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to the same email address.
Applications are due by December 6, but later applications will be considered until the position is filled.
