PhD Position in Astronomy at St.Andrews University

We seek applications for a 3.5-year PhD position in the Astronomy Group,
to work with Dr Jane Greaves and Dr Peter Woitke in the field of
circumstellar discs and planet formation. The research includes the
collection of existing and planning of future observations, from X-ray to
millimetre wavelengths, using telescopes like XMM, HST, VLT, Spitzer,
Herschel, JCMT, eMerlin, and ALMA. The student will collate such data 
from telescope archives and compile a database to form the basis for
multi-wavelength analysis by novel disc models. Much of this data has
never been analysed and so there are exciting opportunities for new
discoveries, as well as for follow-up observations. The work requires to
communicate to observers as well as to modellers, and to figure out how 
to best compare models with observations. The skills required include 
logic, persistence, and willingness to learn to process astronomical data 
at many different wavelengths. Some previous experience or interest in 
database coding would be an advantage.

The research is funded by FP7-SPACE-2011, exploitation of space
exploration data, collaborative project #284405 ("DiscAnalysis"), and 
will be carried out simultaneously in five different European 
institutions, among them Amsterdam (NL), Groningen (NL) and Grenoble (F), 
coordinated from St Andrews (UK). For more information about the Astronomy 
group in St Andrews, see http://star-www.st-and.ac.uk/astronomy. The 
ability to work in a team is an important factor for the choice of 
candidates. Applicants will take part in outreach activities and in an 
exchange programme to visit the participating institutes for the duration 
of several weeks each.

Formal education in advanced astronomy is required as part of the PhD and
is offered via the post-graduate courses of the Scottish Universities 
Physics Alliance (SUPA).

Applications include a CV and a summary of any research projects
undertaken for previous degree. We encourage applicants to apply online
via https://www.vacancies.st-andrews.ac.uk, or alternatively, by email to
[log in to unmask] If you are unable to do this, please call
+44 (0)1334 462571 for an application pack. Applicants should arrange for
two letters of reference sent by the referees directly to the same
address. Applications will be considered until a suitably qualified
student is appointed.

Duration of PhD funding will be from 1 January 2012 to 30 June 2015.

Informal enquiries to Dr. P. Woitke ([log in to unmask]) or
Dr. J. Greaves ([log in to unmask]).

Closing Date:  Friday, 11.11.11
Interview Date:  late November
