Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for a PhD position on the topic of galaxy formation and evolution in the radio astronomy and astrophysics group of the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at Chalmers University of Technology. The successful application will work with Dr. Kirsten K. Knudsen on a project focused on statistical exploration of deep radio and millimeter interferometric surveys. The goal of the project is study the radio and (sub-)mm properties of faint galaxy populations, where most of the individual galaxies are not detected even in deep surveys. This is to be done through development of algorithms and tools for stacking analysis of interferometric data. The tools will be applied to deep extragalactic surveys from sensitive interferometric telescopes (such as ALMA, e-MERLIN, EVLA, and IRAM).

Interested applicants should have a M.Sc. in astronomy, physics, or related fields. Experience with radio or mm interferometry, the topic of galaxy evolution, or programming would be an asset.

Applications should include CV, list of publications, and statement of research interests. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent separately. Applications and letters of reference should be marked with the reference number "2011/29". More information on the position and the application procedure can be found at .
