The Department of Earth and Space Sciences, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg (Sweden), invites applications for a position in radio astronomy. The holder of the post is supposed to play a leading role, in research and in education on the research level, as well as act as Director of the Swedish National Facility for Radio Astronomy, the Onsala Space Observatory (OSO). Chalmers hosts OSO on behalf of the Swedish Research Council. OSO operates two radio telescopes and a LOFAR station in Onsala, is a partner in the Atacama Pathfinder EXperiment (APEX) in Chile, and plays an important role in the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) and the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) projects. OSO is a member of European and global networks for very long baseline interferometry (VLBI). During 2013-2014 a Twin Telescope will be built at Onsala for use in geodetic VLBI. Chalmers and OSO support active research in advanced receiver design and in radio astronomy. Radio science at Chalmers has given rise to research groups in space geodesy, remote sensing, and aeronomy, which continue to develop in new ways. The department has teachers and students in Electrical Engineering, Physics and Engineering Physics, and Environmental Science.
