Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Extragalactic Astronomy with Integral-Field Spectroscopy

Applications Now Open!

AOP is seeking to appoint a postdoctoral research assistant to work with Dr. Marc Sarzi at Fornax3D survey of galaxies in the Fornax galaxy cluster with the VLT-MUSE integral-field spectrograph.

This is a unique opportunity to join an international team of world-leading experts in extra-galactic astronomy and progress our understanding of the formation early-type galaxies in relation to their late-type counterparts and to the impact of galactic environment.

Specific goals of the research assistant may include the characterisation of the stellar population properties of the embedded stellar disks or stellar halos of early-type galaxies, the reconstruction of the star-formation history of late-type galaxies in Fornax, or the interpretation of these and other observational results in light of predictions from cosmological simulations.

As such, experience with integral-field data, unresolved stellar population or in the analysis of numerical simulations will be desirable.

To apply, candidates should submit a single PDF file that includes:
- a letter of motivation (maximum one page)
- a curriculum vitae (with a list of publications and presentations)
- a statement of research interests (maximum of two pages)
to by 4pm on Friday 13th March 2020.

Applicants should also arrange for 3 letters of recommendation to be delivered to the same email address by the same deadline.
