Leiden Observatory is again inviting applications for a postdoctoral research position to work on observations of high-redshift galaxies.
The postdoc would join the research team led by Rychard Bouwens and become a member of an international team of scientists. The postdoc will likely work with members of the HUDF09 team and the CLASH team in their studies of galaxies in the early universe.
Leiden Observatory is the oldest university astronomy department in the world and the largest astronomy department in the Netherlands. Leiden is a charming university town with an international flair, located nearby Amsterdam.
The appointment will be for a period of three years. The position comes with full benefits and a competitive salary. All candidates should be capable of beginning work no later than September 2013, though preference will be given to candidates who can start earlier. Successful candidates must have received their Ph.D. by the starting date.
Previous research experience in the field of high-redshift galaxies, wide-area surveys, HST+Spitzer photometry, spectroscopy and/or lens modeling is highly valued.
Applications should be submitted electronically at http://jobs.strw.leidenuniv.nl/2012/bouwensPostDoc/. Submissions received by January 1st will be given full consideration, though submissions after this date are also welcome while the search is still ongoing.
You will be requested to fill out a brief web form, upload a cover letter, a cirriculum vitae, a brief statement of research interests/experience, and provide the contact information of three referees who will submit reference letters.
The application review process will begin on January 1, 2013 and will continue until the position is filled.
