We will be hiring several post-doctoral fellows at Max-Planck-Institute for Astrophysics.

The MPA is the major German institution dedicated to theoretical and interpretational research in astrophysics and cosmology. It is situated 10 kilometers north of Munich on a campus shared with the MPI for Extraterrestrial Physics, the headquarters of the European Southern Observatory and several other research institutes and university departments. The campus is directly connected to central Munich by subway. The MPA has 15 long-term staff who work with about 40 postdoctoral researchers and a somewhat larger number of PhD students. The Institute runs a vigorous visitor programme and is housed in an attractive, specially designed building with excellent library and computer facilities. It also has privileged access to supercomputer facilities at the neighboring Supercomputer Centre of the Max Planck Society.

Areas of interest for this year's postdoctoral hiring exercise include stellar astrophysics, computational astrophysics and cosmology, the structure, evolution and clustering of galaxies, cosmic large-scale structure, gravitational lensing, microwave background studies and physical cosmology. Further information may be found on our web page

Within these areas, the MPA seeks to fill up to six postdoctoral fellowships intended for promising young scientists who completed their PhD within the last six years. These are usually three-year and exceptionally five-year positions. Salaries are paid at German civil service rates (gross annual pre-tax income including health insurance contributions and Christmas gratification) are currently in the range 45.000 EUR to 55.000 EUR, depending on post-doctoral experience.)
Interested scientists are invited to apply electronically via

Candidates should upload a full curriculum vitae, a publication list, a summary of current research interests and a statement of how they anticipate their research to mesh with current MPA programmes on this site by December 6, 2014.

No further hardcopy of the electronically submitted documents will be needed. Late applications will be accepted until the posts are filled. The candidates should also arrange for three reference letters to be uploaded on the same site by the same date.

The MPA is actively committed to equal opportunity in employment.
