The Max Planck Institute for Astronomy (MPIA) in Heidelberg invites applications for a postdoctoral research position (m/f/d) in the Planet and Star Formation Department. The successful applicant will carry out research in the field of planet formation working in the group of Dr. Paola Pinilla.
Applicants with expertise in simulations and/or observations of planet-forming disks, and more broadly, in the field of star and planet formation, are invited to apply. Expertise in hydrodynamic simulations, radiative transfer simulations, dust evolution, and/or multi-wavelength observations of protoplanetary disks would be a plus.
Applicants should have a PhD in astronomy, astrophysics, physics or a closely related field. The appointment will be for a period of three years. Funds for publications, travel, and computer equipment will be provided.
