Postdoctoral and Ph.D. positions in Infrared Interferometry at MPIFR (Bonn)
Thursday 15 April 2004, by Gerd Weigelt

Applications are invited for postdoctoral and Ph.D. positions in the Infrared Interferometry Group of the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn (see

Preference will be given to applicants with experience in one of the following areas: star formation, active galactic nuclei, radiative transfer modeling, or infrared long-baseline interferometry.

The successful applicants will be expected to participate in the development of interferometric methods, interferometric observations, and their interpretation. The positions offer excellent opportunities for high-resolution studies using the VLT Interferometer (in particular, its AMBER phase closure instrument), the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT LINC beam combiner instrument), and speckle interferometry. As our group is a member of the international VLTI AMBER and the LBT LINC consortia, we own a large amount of both VLTI and LBT Guaranteed Observing Time.

The appointments are initially for one year and are renewable for up to six years. Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, list of publications, and brief description of research interests, and arrange for one letter of recommendation to be sent to Prof. Gerd Weigelt (

Review of applications will begin on 1 June 2004 and continue until the positions are filled. The Max-Planck Society is an equal opportunity employer and aims to employ more disabled people. Applications from disabled persons are therefore particularly welcome.
