Postdoctoral Research Positions (m/f/d) in Theoretical/Computational Astrophysics

The Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics Potsdam (AIP) invites applications for postdoctoral associates to conduct research in theoretical and computational astrophysics with Prof. Christoph Pfrommer. The successful candidates will work in the broad areas of the formation and evolution of galaxies and galaxy clusters, transport and feedback by cosmic rays and magnetic fields, or particle-in-cell simulations of shock acceleration and particle transport. Funding for these positions is provided by the ERC advanced grant PICOGAL that pursues a coordinated multi-scale approach, which combines plasma kinetic and global fluid models with the goal to understand the physics of galaxy formation in a cosmological context, including the interstellar, circum- and intergalactic media, galaxies, and galaxy clusters. The initial appointment will be made for 2 years (with a possible extension of up to a maximum of 5 years in total), comes with a competitive salary that is based on the German public service scale (TV-L), health benefits, and relocation expenses. Additional funds are available for computational equipment and travel.
