Scientists (f/m/d) in experimental physics / computer science / mathematics / electrical engineering / digital signal processing
MAX-PLANCK-INSTITUT FÜR GRAVITATIONSPHYSIK
The Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) is a leading research institute in the world specializing in gravitational physics.
Around 200 international scientists work at the research labs and offices located in Potsdam-Golm and Hannover, Germany.
The Albert Einstein Institute in Hannover plays a central role in the development of ground- and space-based instruments for gravitational wave detection and Earth gravity field observation.
The “laser interferometry in space” group focuses on LISA, GRACE Follow-On and instrumentation for future mission concepts. More information can be found at
We are expanding our team and are looking for
several scientists (m/f/d)
with a Ph.D. degree or equivalent in experimental physics or related fields (computer science, mathematics, electrical engineering, digital signal processing) for
projects at the forefront of experimental gravitational physics and instrumentation.
Specific topics include:
Development of prototypes for the LISA optical metrology.
Development and experimental verification of compact optical interferometers to read out test mass position and orientation in gravitational experiments.
You are highly motivated to work in an international research team and have experience with an excellent track record in several of the following research areas:
Analogue & digital electronics
