University Assistant (post doc) at the Department of Astrophysics
The University of Vienna (20 faculties and centres, 178 fields of study, approx. 9.800 members of staff, about 90.000 students) seeks to fill the position from 01.09.2021 of a
University Assistant (post doc)
at the Department of Astrophysics
Reference number: 11643
The University of Vienna announces availability of a 4-year postdoctoral position in observational and/or theoretical/numerical studies related to star and planet formation or the evolution of planets and their atmospheres. The position is part of the Star and Planet Formation group of Prof. Manuel Guedel that hosts a large national research program on planet formation and exoplanetary habitability, offering many opportunities for participation and collaboration.
The Department provides a lively research environment including approx. 70 staff members, postdocs, and PhD students. The candidate will have access to observatories of ESO and ESA; for numerical work, the Vienna Scientific Cluster will be accessible. The group's active involvement (at the Co-PI/Co-I/science team level) in the consortia of JWST/MIRI, CHEOPS, PLATO, Ariel, Athena, SMILE, METIS on ESO's ELT, and MARVEL offers opportunities for further international collaborations.
Funds are made available to support travel expenses and conference participation.
The position should be filled in fall 2021 but no earlier than 1 September 2021.
The candidate will develop research in either of the areas of protostars and their jets, protoplanetary disks, planet formation and evolution, or planetary atmospheres and their interactions with the "space weather environment" including aspects of habitablity. Specialisation can be in the areas of both observations and theoretical/numerical modelling. The candidate will be expected to carry out a strong independent research program but is encouraged to collaborate with other members of our research group. Independent teaching of courses as defined by the collective agreement and the supervision of students are part of the tasks too.
Doctoral degree in astronomy/astrophysics, preferentially with expertise in star formation, protoplanetary disks, exoplanetary research (theory, modeling or observation). Good knowledge of programming language(s) and operating system(s) and an excellent command of written and spoken English are essential. Excellent capabilities in independent research and project development are an advantage.
