RG Saur

1  Postdoc Position (online since: 20/04/20)

A two year postdoc position starting in September 2020 is available in the Space Physics/Planetary Group of the Institute of Geophysics and Meteorology at the University of Cologne, Germany. The position can be extended up to a total of five years. The research objectives will lie within the goals of a European Research Council (ERC) Grant to better understand subsurface oceans and the space plasma environments of the moons in the outer solar system. We particularly look for candidates with a strong background in computational plasma physics. We offer a thriving work environment within a group of students and postdocs working on related, complementary topics. A second call for applications to a postdoc position within the ERC grant will follow likely early 2021.
Candidates should submit a CV and a cover letter describing their research experience and interests, and names and contact information for two references. The position is open until filled, however we will begin reviewing applications on June 15, 2020. We encourage women and persons with disabilities to apply. 

Some flexibility in the starting date exists due to the uncertain development of the corona crisis and the formal finalisation of the ERC grant agreements.

Applications should be submitted electronically to Joachim Saur (saur(at)geo.uni-koeln.de)
