The Cosmic Dawn Center (DAWN) invites applications for the DAWN Fellowship. The fellowships are intended for outstanding early career scientists whose research falls within DAWN’s research themes: high-redshift galaxy evolution, epoch of re-ionization, first stars and galaxies, dust and ISM in the early universe and dark matter. DAWN Fellows are expected to pursue their own independent, cutting edge research programs, either in theory or observations.
As a DAWN Fellow you are expected to carry out world-class research, and to collaborate with DAWN scientists at DTU Space and the Niels Bohr Institute (NBI), as well as our international institutes associated with DAWN.
You must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent).
DAWN is a new Center of Excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation (DNRF), and is located at the DTU Space department of the Technical University of Denmark and the Niels Bohr Institute (NBI), University of Copenhagen. In addition, the center has a number of associate members at major research institutes across Europe, North America, and Australia. DAWN brings together experts in all aspects of early Universe galaxy evolution and is deeply involved in major existing and upcoming surveys with e.g. HST, ALMA, Greenland Telescope, Euclid, and JWST, as well as cosmological and zoom in simulations. For more information on the Center's activities and researchers, please see http://dawn.nbi.ku.dk/.
The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union. The period of employment is three years. More on employment conditions and living in Copenhagen: http://ism.ku.dk.
The employment is scheduled to start in the fall of 2021 or upon agreement with the chosen candidate. Applicants may also be considered for other post-doctoral positions at the Cosmic DAWN Center.
DAWN Fellows receive support for computing, travel and publication expenses.
