The Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy (MPIfR) is recruiting up to two postdoctoral researchers in Radio Astronomy to join the project M2FINDERS (Mapping Magnetic Fields with INterferometry Down to Event hoRizon Scales). M2FINDERS is led by Prof. Zensus as the principal investigator, with funding from the European Research Council (grant agreement No 101018682).
The project will comprise a dedicated in depth study of prominent nearby AGN, using multifrequency VLBI observations with the VLBA and EVN at 15, 22, and 43 GHz, the GMVA at 86 GHz, and the EHT at 230 GHz.
The postdoctoral researchers will work on Magnetic field measurements in the vicinity of supermassive black holes.
There will also be opportunities to supervise and collaborate with PhD students and gain teaching experience in the International Max Planck Research School for Astronomy and Astrophysics (IMPRS).
