The Centro de Astronomía at the Universidad de Antofagasta (CITEVA) in Chile is seeking enthusiastic young researchers to carry out cutting-edge research on star formation, galaxy evolution, kinematics and dynamics, Galactic structure, stellar populations, star clusters, variable stars, binary stars, or planetary sciences. We prefer candidates with a team spirit, interested in building strong collaborations with the Chilean and international community. To support their research, successful applicants will not only have access to the 10% Chilean time but also to major surveys in which CITEVA is involved, such as SDSS-IV, LSST, VVV, VISIONS, Gaia, and MINDSTEp.

A CV, a list of publications, a research statement, and contact information of three referees should be sent to before July 21, 2019. Selected applicants will then gain the required sponsorship from the University to access local postdoctoral funding sources.

CITEVA is based in Antofagasta, a large and rapidly expanding coastal city in Northern Chile, on the edge of the spectacular Atacama desert, where ALMA and VLT are located, and where the E-ELT is being built. CITEVA is the premier professional group in Northern Chile.
