The Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics at the University of Tübingen (IAAT) has an opening for a Postdoc and two PhD positions within the Emmy Noether Research Group „Accretion flows and feedback in realistic models of massive star formation“.
The successful applicants will carry out original research in the field of Massive Star Formation working in the Emmy Noether group of Dr. Rolf Kuiper. Emphasis lies on the (radiation-/magneto-)hydrodynamical and chemical evolution of jets, outflows, and accretion disk around massive protostars. Applicants with previous experience in numerical modeling will be favored.
The research activities of the IAAT (http://www.tat.physik.uni-tuebingen.de) include Astronomy, Instrumental Design/ High Energy Physics, Computational Astrophysics and Relativistic Astrophysics. The focus of research of the Emmy Noether group lies in the field of massive star formation and the physics/ chemistry of jets, outflows, and accretion disks.

The appointments are funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and paid according to German public service scale. Starting dates are negotiable. Applicants should check for details of the application procedure at links below.
The University of Tübingen seeks to increase the fraction of female scientists in research and teaching and particularly encourages applications from women. Disabled candidates are given preference if equally qualified.
