Job Advertisement: Closing Date 2nd November 2018
The Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) is offering a
postdoctoral fellowship to work in star formation with support from the
European Research Council (ERC). The ERC Advanced Grant project Ejection
Accretion Structures in YSOs (EASY) aims to understand the origin of
outflows from young stars using guaranteed time on a variety of
facilities including LOFAR, e-MERLIN, JWST, GRAVITY and SPIRou. The
fellow recruited will work primarily in the field of spectro-polarimetry
using data from SPIRou on the CFHT to help understand magnetic fields in
young stars and their disks. This fellowship is available for 4 years
beginning December 2018 (the precise starting date is negotiable).
Remuneration is based on Science Foundation Ireland Scales 2A or 2B
and starting salary will depend on experience.
Interested candidates should send a curriculum vitae, publication list,
and a brief statement of research interests by Friday November 2nd
2018. They should also arrange for three letters of reference to be
provided separately by the same date. Applicants should have a PhD in
Physics, Astronomy, or a closely related field and have excellent data
reduction and modelling skills. DIAS will provide funds for
publications, travel, etc., and each fellow is expected to act as a
mentor to an assigned PhD student for the duration of their contract.
Applications, and submission enquiries should be sent to Ms Eileen
Flood, ([log in to unmask]). Detailed enquiries regarding scientific
aspects of the project can be made to Prof Tom Ray ([log in to unmask]).
The Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies is an equal opportunity employer.
