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.
