The Max-Planck-Institut für Radioastronomie (MPIfR) is recruiting up to two postdoctoral researchers in radio astronomy. These positions are based in the Radio Astronomy/VLBI department led by Prof. J. Anton Zensus.
The department has a broad research portfolio. Research topics focus on the investigation of compact extragalactic objects (AGN) and their broad-band emission, with a special emphasis on very-high-resolution studies. These include mm- and space-VLBI imaging and blazar monitoring with F-GAMMA/MOJAVE/TANAMI. The MPIfR operates the 100-m radio telescope in Effelsberg (element of EVN and GMVA), and it is major partner of APEX in Chile (element of EHT). It also operates a state-of-the-art VLBI correlator and the LOFAR DE1 station, which is part of the International LOFAR Telescope.
The initial appointment is for two years with the possibility of extension after review. The anticipated start date is early 2020.
Application deadline: 15.12.2019
