Observational astrophysics using interferometry and adaptive optics

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

The position is opened for working in observational astrophysics at high angular resolution in the field of star formation, with an emphasis on using stellar interferometry with the VLTI facility in Chile. The PhD candidate will work under the co-supervision of Prof. Lucas Labadie (University of Cologne) and Prof. Gerd Weigelt (Max-Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy, Bonn).

Applicants should hold the equivalent of a MSc or Diploma degree in physics or astronomy. She/He should have ideally gained first experience with astronomical research, and have a background in the field of star formation and/or in stellar interferometry or adaptive optics. Experience with a standard programming language (C/C++/IDL/Matlab) is an asset.
