The Research School for Astronomy & Astrophysics at the Australian National University invites applications for a postdoctoral fellow to work with Professor Lisa Kewley on galaxy formation and evolution. The successful applicant will contribute to a research program combining integral field spectroscopy with theoretical simulations to measure the chemical evolution, galactic outflows, and star formation in galaxies across cosmic time.
Applicants with expertise in strong gravitational lensing, cosmological simulations of galaxy formation and evolution, galactic-scale outflows, and/or integral field spectroscopic data observations and analysis are particularly encouraged to apply.
The position is for 3 years, with a possible 4th year extension contingent upon progress and funding. The salary range is AU $66,900 - $83,773 (depending on experience). The start date is flexible between March - Dec 2013. Applicants should have a PhD in Astronomy or Physics before arrival.
Applicants should send a single pdf to email@example.com containing:
-3-page research statement describing past research achievements and future plans.
Three letters of reference should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline. Complete applications received by January 10, 2013 will receive full consideration.
