The Armagh Observatory and Planetarium invites applications for the newly established Öpik Fellowship, named in honour of former AOP director Ernst Öpik (1893 –1985) and his pioneering work from the study of asteroids to that of galaxies.
Applications Now Open!
AOP is seeking to appoint an individual on an upward career trajectory and with an outstanding research record, who is looking to establish a unique research area that would contribute to, or complement, the ongoing research at AOP.
This is a unique opportunity to carry out independent research in one of the longest continuously operating astronomical research institutes in the world and one of the world’s most advanced planetaria.
The establishment of the Öpik Fellowship is in keeping with the AOP long-term ambition to be a diverse research environment covering a broad range of astrophysical topics. As such, applications are welcome from candidates working in any field related to astrophysics, including theory, observations, simulations and instrumentation.
