Applications are invited for a staff position in the High-Energy Group at MPE.
The successful candidate is expected to lead a research program on X-ray studies of clusters of galaxies utilising the forthcoming all-sky survey by the eROSITA instrument, which is due for launch on the SRG mission in 2019. Access to a wide variety of complementary ground-based data will also be available.
Applicants must have a Ph.D in astronomy, astrophysics or a closely-related field, as well as significant postdoctoral experience, and have an internationally-recognised record of research achievements and refereed publications relating to clusters of galaxies. Specific expertise in X-ray observations, cluster surveys and/or cluster cosmology would also be highly desirable.
