The Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy (ASTRON) and the Joint Institute for VLBI ERIC (JIVE) have positions available for

Traineeships in science operations with massive arrays

Description

The Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy (ASTRON) and the Joint Institute for VLBI ERIC (JIVE) announce the availability of a minimum of two grants for their Traineeship in Science Operations with massive arrays. The programme enables astronomers (post doc, PhD or graduate student level) to spend a trimester (12 weeks) at the institute in Dwingeloo in the Netherlands. Under the supervision of Telescope Scientists, you will develop fundamental skills and novel experimental methods on systems using technologies that produce cutting-edge science now and contribute to the development of the SKA. ASTRON & JIVE are committed to increasing their staff diversity, and we are especially interested in applications from all traditionally under-represented groups.

This programme will be sponsored by ASTRON and the Joining Up Users for Maximising the Profile, the Innovation and the Necessary Globalisation of JIVE (JUMPING JIVE) project, which has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 730884.

The available positions are open to applicants from all countries. JUMPING JIVE will specifically sponsor the positions for applications from African countries.

The traineeship grants will provide successful candidates with accommodation near the institute in Dwingeloo and a modest stipend for the duration of the traineeship. Travel expenses will not be included, unless the applicant is from an African country. Candidates who do not require financial contribution should clearly state so in their application, as this may increase the number of available positions.

We expect the traineeship programme to start at the beginning of May 2019. The final dates will be set based on the availability of the selected applicants.
