Five Postdoctoral Position in Onsala and at the Nordic ARC node

deadline: 6 February 2015


Applications are invited for up to five postdoctoral positions at the Department of Earth and Space Sciences, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, working within the group for Radio Astronomy and Astrophysics located at Onsala, Sweden.
Specific research areas for the positions include the study of evolved stars, magnetic fields, pulsar astrometry, numerical radiative transfer, nearby galaxies, AGN/starbursts and high-z galaxy formation and evolution.

Research at Chalmers has a strong tradition in radio, (sub-)millimeter and infrared wavelength observations, and we encourage applications from a wide variety of astronomical backgrounds. The postdocs will also be able to carry out his/her own research in collaboration with affiliated group members, which includes a number of PhD students. At least one and up to two postdoc positions will be offered within the Nordic ARC node, hosted at the Onsala Swedish National Facility for Radio Astronomy, and will therefore include a fraction of his/her time supporting ALMA observations within the ARC node network.

Interested applicants should have a PhD in astrophysics by the start of the appointment. Applicants should send a CV, description of
research interests and a publication list. They should also include the addresses of two references who can be contacted by
The application deadline is 6 February 2015 with a starting date expected in mid-2015. Further details as well as the electronic
