Job Announcement Text: 

The School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Birmingham invites applications for a tenured faculty position in Astrophysics at the Lectureship level, or exceptionally at a higher level.

The Astrophysics and Space Research Group has a wide range of research activities, spanning theory, observations and instrumentation. Research areas include galactic and extra-galactic astrophysics, gravitational lensing and cosmology, exoplanets, and gravitational-wave science. The group has a strong track record of research grant funding. Members of the group play important roles in major international efforts and collaborations, such as the Euclid Consortium, XXL, LoCuSS, GAMA, the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, the GEO Collaboration, the European and International Pulsar Timing Array Collaboration, and the Einstein gravitational-wave Telescope. Excellent technical facilities support the strong experimental programme in the area of gravity and gravitational waves.

The appointment is expected to complement and expand existing research activities. We encourage especially applications in the areas of extra-galactic astrophysics, cosmology and gravitational-wave instrumentation, but exceptional individuals in any field will be considered.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Alberto Vecchio (av@star.sr.bham.ac.uk).

The closing date for applications is March 31st, 2014.
