The PhD student will be supervised by Prof. Katja Poppenhäger and mentored by Dr. Julián D. Alvarado-Gómez.

Applicants should hold a Master’s degree or equivalent in astrophysics or a related discipline at the time of starting the position.

**Due to the corona virus situation, the start date for this position will be handled very flexibly.**
