Postdoc Positions in Continuous Gravitational-wave Searches

Postdoc Positions in Continuous Gravitational-wave Searches

Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics

Hanover, Germany

We invite applications for outstanding Post-Docs interested in joining our efforts to detect continuous gravitational waves. These are waves that have not yet been detected, expected from fast rotating compact objects. The detection problem is possibly one of the most challenging across the various types of GW signals, with the data analysis procedures effectively increasing the detector sensitivity by a significant amount. The permanent independent research group at AEI led by M. Alessandra Papa 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 computing project.

The ideal candidate should have an excellent academic track record, programming experience, have worked with data, be creative, interested in astronomy and astrophysics, enthusiastic and should like to work in a team. Prior experience with gravitational wave data is not required.
