Post 3 - Fixed Term Contract from 1 April 2013 until 31 March 2018
The Astronomy & Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick is seeking three ambitious post-doctoral researchers to work within the project "White dwarfs as tracers of stellar, binary, and planetary evolution". The positions are funded by an ERC Advanced Grant held by Boris Gaensicke, and the team will include at least three PhD students as well. The overarching aim of the project is to use a range of deep large-area surveys to identify an all-sky sample of white dwarfs, carry out detailed follow-up observations, and investigate questions ranging from the evolution of planetary systems to the nature of SNIa progenitors.
You must hold, or be about to obtain, a PhD in astronomy. Experience in observational astronomy and data reduction, survey astronomy and data mining, or model atmospheres, will be a strong advantage.
