Job Market of the AG

The Executive Committee wants to announce both vacant positions and applications for a position in the field of astronomy. All information is compiled for free. The AG office acts as an administrator of the respective offer on the server in Heidelberg, but not as an intermediary. Therefore, those interested are requested to contact the addresses directly.

You can participate in the e-mail list service. For that, please send an e-mail to job-announce-subscribe@astronomische-gesellschaft.de with the subject: subscribe. Thereafter you receive a confirmation, which you have to reply to. This will result in another confirmation e-mail with instructions and a short description how to un-subscribe your list membership. Now you will receive automatically a pointer to new job offers by e-mail. To remove your address from the list please use an identical procedure by sending an email to job-announce-unsubscribe@astronomische-gesellschaft.de with the subject: unsubscribe. You will then also receive a confirmation mail you have to reply to to complete the process.

Please support our effort by registering desired and vacant positions with the AG office via office@ astronomische-gesellschaft.de or job-announce@astronomische-gesellschaft.de. Note that job-announce is a list moderated by the AG office; hence from your submission of a job offer till publication on the list it may take some time.

At present, the following positions are announced:
