  • Challenges and future perspectives in gravitational- wave astronomy: O4 and beyond, October 14-18, Leiden, NL

    Challenges and future perspectives in gravitational- wave astronomy: O4 and beyond, October 14-18, Leiden, NL This workshop will foster an interdisciplinary discussion about how ongoing and future observations of gravitational and electromagnetic waves can be used to shed light on the physics of compact-object formation and evolution. We will bring together experts on: (i) parameter estimation from gravitational-wave data; (ii) astrophysical modeling of gravitational-wave sources and their electromagnetic counterparts; and (iii) gravitational-wave „data mining“. This meeting will bring together astronomers and gravitational-wave scientists whose current research covers these three topics. Workshop Website

  • Technical assistant for LISA hardware-in-the-loop simulations at AEI Hannover

    03.07.2024 Technical assistant for LISA hardware-in-the-loop simulations at AEI Hannover The Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) employs around 400 international scientists, technical and administrative staff, and students.

  • Scientist in experimental particle physics at DESY Hamburg

    26.06.2024 Scientist in experimental particle physics at DESY Hamburg In addition to its engagement in experiments at CERN and KEK, DESY is operating, constructing and planning new on-site particle physics experiments. These mainly focus on new kinds of very lightweight elementary particles which might also constitute the dark matter in the Universe. At present, ALPS II is taking data, the construction of BabyIAXO is being prepared and MADMAX is in its prototyping phase. All experiments involve technologies very different from accelerator-based experiments, but simultaneously try to follow well-established approaches as close as possible.At DESY in Hamburg, the group FH-ALPS is in charge of these activities, pursued jointly in international collaborations.…
