Positions for Postdocs and Ph.D. students

We are inviting applications from outstanding Post-Docs and graduate students (Ph.D. students) to join the permanent independent research group “Searching for Continuous Gravitational Waves” at the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (AEI), in Hannover, Germany.

Continuous gravitational waves have not yet been observed. The detection problem is possibly one of the most challenging across the various types of gravitational wave signals, with the data analysis procedures effectively increasing the detector sensitivity by a significant amount. The group at AEI is the largest group world-wide devoted to this endeavour, designing and carrying out the deepest searches and deploying them on in-house computing resources and on the Einstein@Home volunteer commuting project. The research environment is dynamic, stimulating and fast-paced.

The ideal candidate should have an excellent academic track record, programming experience, have worked with data, be creative, enthusiastic and driven. Prior experience with gravitational wave data is not required.

For post doctoral fellows the initial appointment will be for two years with the possibility, upon satisfactory performance, of an extension. For PhD students the appointment is for three years. Their PhD is awarded by Leibniz university Hanover.

The working language of the group is English.

Applications can be submitted through this web site or by email to . They  should comprise a CV, a publication list, a brief research statement and at least three letters of reference. If submitting the application by email  arrange for the letters to be sent by each of your references from their institutional email address to -- do not send the letters of reference yourself.

The deadline for submission is January 10th 2021, but later applications will be considered until the positions are filled.

The Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics is an equal opportunity employer, and is committed to providing employment opportunities to all qualified applicants.
