The Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics (JBCA) at the University of Manchester invites applications for a Research Associate. The 24 month position has been awarded as part of the STFC Programme.
You will be expected to work with the JBCA group and their collaborators who study the properties of faint radio sources, both in the nearby Universe and at high redshift. Much of the research will be carried out at radio wavelengths and will focus on the largest two approved e-MERLIN legacy programmes, e-MERGE and LeMMINGs.
You will be required to undertake research related to the faint radio emission which will be revealed by deep e-MERLIN legacy programme observations. This emission arises from star-forming and accretion powered systems, both in nearby galaxies and galaxies in the distant universe though focussing primarily on radio observations the appointee will be expected to make use the extensive multi-wavelength data available in order to study star-formation and the evolution of such activity throughout the age of the Universe.
You must have submitted or obtained a PhD (or equivalent) in Astrophysics and the majority of their doctoral research must be in the area of the star-formation and activity in galaxies.
Applications should be made online at www.manchester.ac.uk/jobs
Vacancy reference is EPS-02068.
Closing date for applications is 3rd February 2013
The University of Manchester values a diverse workforce and welcomes applications
