Two postdoc positions on relativistic modelling and data processing for Gaia
23 December 2005
The Lohrmann Observatory at the Dresden University of Technology is offering two postdoc positions to participate in the development of algorithms and software for relativistic modelling of microarcsecond astrometric observations and tests of fundamental physics with Gaia data. One position is for development of algorithms and software for Gaia data processing dedicated to finding an optimal scheme for testing relativity with Gaia. The second position is for theoretical and practical refinements of relativistic modelling for Gaia. Both positions are funded until the end of 2009 with the possibility for extensions. A starting date, for both positions, of 1 April 2006 is envisaged, but is flexible. Applications should be submitted by 15 February 2006.
