PhD Positions Gravity and Matter at the Extreme AEI


PhD positions in “Gravity & Matter at the Extreme” at the MPI for Gravitational Physics in Potsdam

The Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute, AEI) in Potsdam, Germany, announces the opening of several PhD positions in “Gravity & Matter at the Extreme”. AEI is particularly interested in hiring creative, proactive and motivated candidates who flourish at working in a vibrant, interdisciplinary and synergistic group. Successful candidates will join the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS) for Gravitational-Wave Astronomy at the AEI, comprised of the “Astrophysical and Cosmological Relativity” (ACR) and “Computational Relativistic Astrophysics” (CRA) divisions at the AEI in Potsdam, the University of Potsdam (UP) and the Humboldt University (HU) in Berlin. Our graduate students are exposed to a variety of research topics and have access to a world-wide research network, including international partner universities (University of Maryland and the Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics at Kyoto University). The graduate students also have the opportunity to join the LIGO Scientific Collaboration and the LISA Consortium through the ACR-division’s membership, and the Einstein Telescope Collaboration through the AEI-UP membership. Application deadline: January 23rd 2023.
