GEO600 is a 600m long interferometric GW detector located near Hannover, Germany and run by the Albert Einstein Institute in Hannover. As the other large interferometer sites are currently installing the next generation of instruments, GEO600 is the only place where experience can be gained on an operating, interferometric GW detector. The GEO600 group invites applications in the post-doctoral or graduate researcher level. The main lines of research currently pursued are increasing the laser power, integrating a squeezed light source, novel control schemes, and searching for unexplained sources of noise. Independent of what the work turns out to be, because of the large similarity between all GW interferometers, experience gained at GEO600 will prove to be invaluable to those looking toward commissioning the next generation of instruments.
