PhD position at Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) in galaxy evolution

the Leibniz-Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) invites applications for a PhD position to analyze data of intermediate redshift galaxies (z<1) obtained with MUSE, an integral-field spectrograph. The goal is to characterize their stellar kinematics and populations, and trace the evolution of the stellar angular momentum as a function of galaxy mass and environment. The candidate will work with Dr. Davor Krajnović at the AIP and be integrated within the graduate program of the University of Potsdam.

Applicants should hold a Master’s degree or equivalent in astrophysics or a related discipline at the time of starting the position. The following skills are advantageous: experience in scientific coding, familiarity with the basic analysis of photometric or spectroscopic observations, knowledge of the stellar population modeling or extraction of stellar kinematics of galaxies. Advanced English skills (written and spoken) are necessary.

The application should comprise a cover letter, a Curriculum Vitae, and one page summary of research experience and interests. The applicant should also arrange for two letters of reference to be sent to the address given below. The application should contain your Master degree certificate (or equivalent) or expected degree completion date, and a link to the Master thesis. Application should be sent as a single pdf file by November 12, 2021 to: [email protected]. More info can be obtained: https://www.aip.de/documents/219/phd-position/.
