December 1, 2012: Post doc in stellar astrophysics: The Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics at the University of Innsbruck invites applications for a post doc position in stellar astrophysics. The successful candidate will work on observational aspects in order to exploit the possibilities provided by the recent accession of Austria to ESO, quantitative analyses and/or modelling of stellar atmospheres, with a focus on massive, luminous stars. Participation in teaching is expected. The appointment may start as early as March 1, 2013 and will be for four years. Applicants should have a PhD in astronomy, physics or a related field. They should send by email curriculum vitae, publication list, a brief statement of research interests, and arrange for three letters of recommendation to be sent. Attachments should not exceed 5 MB. Closing date for applications: January 9, 2013
October 29, 2012: Post doc in extragalactic astrophysics: The Institute for Astro- and Particle Physics at the University of Innsbruck invites applications for a post doc position in extragalactic astrophysics. The successful candidate will work on numerical simulations of galaxy clusters, in particular on metal enrichment processes of the ICM. The appointment may start as early as February 2013. Closing date for applications: November 7, 2012
One tenure track assistent / assistent professor position
The application should either show a particular emphasis on a research programme using ESO facilities with the research topic focussing around galaxy clusters, galaxies and/or their interaction OR a second possibility would be a good record of the candidate in numerical hydrodynamic simulations of the evolution of galaxy clusters and their constituents.
