News & Jobs

We are always looking for motivated young scientists at all academic levels to join our research group.

Postdoc positions are advertised though the AAS job register. 
PhD applications are usually considered through the
IMPRS graduate school. The next call will open in Fall 2019.

If you are interested in an internship or in a BSc/MSc project in my group, please contact me by email.

Here are some of the open projects:

  • 3D Non-LTE modelling of CH and the origin of carbon in the early Universe
  • Abundances in the Sun and in the solar system
  • Observational constraints on progenitors of SN Ia using abundances of Fe-group elements
  • Measuring ages of the oldest stars
  • Relationship between alpha- and r-process elements in the Galactic disk and halo
