ERC-funded postdoc position in computational relativistic astrophysics of neutron star mergers at the University of Jena, Germany Eintrag erweitern

The Friedrich Schiller University Jena is a traditional university with a strong research profile rooted in the heart of Germany. As a university covering all disciplines, it offers a wide range of subjects. Its research is focused on the areas Light—Life—Liberty. It is closely networked with non-research institutions, research companies and renowned cultural institutions. With around 18,000 students and more than 8,600 employees, the university plays a major role in shaping Jena’s character as a cosmopolitan and future-oriented city.

The Institute for Theoretical Physics (TPI) of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena announces one                                                  
                                                              Post-doctoral Researcher Position

The position is associated with the research group of Prof. Sebastiano Bernuzzi at the TPI Jena and it is funded by the European Research Council consolidator grant 101043372 'InspiReM ' of the Horizon programme. The successful researcher is expected to work on simulations of binary neutron star mergers in general relativity including high-performance computing, magnetohydrodynamics, microphysics, nuclear physics aspects, radiation transport, and ab-initio modeling of astrophysical observables.
Candidates with demonstrated expertise in these areas are particularly encouraged to apply.

Qualification requirements:

  • PhD in theoretical or computational physics
  • Preferably experienced in numerical relativity and/or computational astrophysics.
  • Fluent communication skills in English, both spoken and written are required

Main tasks:

  • Research in highly inter-disciplinary team
  • Excellent local computer support and HPC facilities
  • Generous budget for attending conferences and workshops


We offer:

  • Full-time position in standard class salary E13 and insurance benefits
  • Participation in an excellent international, multi-disciplinary research team
  • Possibility of co-supervision of students and help in teaching
  • Possibility to participate to international networks and collaborations (LIGO-Virgo, LISA, Einstein Telescope, CoRe)
  • University health promotion and a family-friendly working environment with flexible working hours.

Severely handicapped people are given preference for equal qualifications, aptitude and professional qualifications. Friedrich Schiller University Jena is committed to increase the percentage of female scientists and therefore especially encourages them to apply.

Applications should be received by December 1st, 2022, but will be considered until the positions are filled. The starting date of the project is April 1st, 2023. The appointment will be initially for two years but funds up to five years are available.
