3 year Postdoctoral Position Funded by STFC
We are looking for a motivated postdoc to join the Astrophysics group at the University of Dundee, UK, working on emission line tomography of young stars to study accretion, activity, and planet migration in the innermost disk. The successful candidate will work with Aurora Sicilia-Aguilar and Soko Matsumura, analyzing time-resolved emission line spectra of young stars to map accretion structures and the innermost disk and their relation to planet formation and migration. Part of the project includes the development of Python-based tools to analyze the emission line spectra of significant numbers of stars. The post is funded by a STFC Astronomy Research Grant and includes travel funds.
A background in star formation, young stars, protoplanetary disks, planet searches, and/or high-resolution optical spectroscopy is required. Knowledge of Python programming language is highly desirable.
The starting date is April 1, 2019 (subject to negotiation), and the post is for 3 years.
Please arrange for a cv with publication list, research statement (max 2 pages), and 2 reference letters to be sent to Dr. A. Sicilia-Aguilar (firstname.lastname@example.org). Informal enquiries can be also directed to the same address.
Applications received before January 10, 2019 will receive full consideration.
