Job Announcement Text: 

The Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie (MPIfR) is recruiting qualified individuals for a postdoctoral appointment in radio astronomy. This position is based in the Radio Astronomy/VLBI department led by Prof. J. Anton Zensus.

The research department has a broad research portfolio. Key research topics focus on the investigation of compact extragalactic objects (AGN) and their broad-band emission, with a special emphasis on very-high-resolution studies.  These include mm- and space-VLBI imaging  and blazar monitoring with F-GAMMA/MOJAVE/TANAMI.  The MPIfR operates the VLBI correlator, the 100-m radio telescope in Effelsberg (element of EVN and GMVA), and it is major partner of APEX in Chile (element of EHT).

We are looking for individuals to join our department as a postdoctoral researcher. Technical mastery of radio interferometry techniques is of advantage, as well as a good publication record.  Candidates with complementary skills to our research portfolio are especially encouraged to apply.   The appointee will be expected to join our research lines and collaborate closely with other department members.  The International Max Planck Research School for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IMPRS) offers the opportunity for joint research with PhD students, their supervision and teaching in the program.

Interested and qualified individuals are encouraged to apply by submitting curriculum vitae, list of publications, research interests, and have three letters of recommendation sent to the above address (email or hardcopy) by July 1st, 2016

Included Benefits: 

The initial appointment is for two years with the possibility of extension after review. The anticipated start date is in late 2016. Remuneration is within the framework of the German wage agreement for the public system (TVöD) in level 13, starting from a gross salary of 45336€ yearly. Individually determined tax, and contributions for social benfits and statutory health insurance will be deducted.
