Astronomy and plasma physics (AoP) division at the Space, Earth and Environment department at Chalmers seeks for an outstanding postdoctoral fellow to carry out an independent research program on the 3-dimensional (3D) structure and nature of the interstellar medium (ISM).
The fellow's research interests and program should exploit the latest advances in 3D mapping of the Galactic ISM, to gain insights on physical processes in it and/or the initial conditions of star formation. The program can have observational or theoretical focus; it can also have Galactic or extra-galactic focus. The program should also connect with the interests of the on-going 3D ISM studies led by Assoc. Prof. Jouni Kainulainen and Asst. Prof. Georgia Panopoulou at Chalmers. The candidate is also expected to participate in building a positive, inclusive work environment at the division.
The position is initially for 2 years and has a horizon for up to 4 years, depending on the availability of funding. The position has a high degree of independence, possibility to pursue new projects, generous research budget, and ample possibilities for collaborations.
The application should include the following:
- Cover Letter
- CV, including list of publications
- Statement of the past and current research (max 3 pages)
- Research plan emphasising the connections with the relevant studies at AoP (max 4 pages)
- Contact details of three referees who can be contacted for Reference Letters.
Applications are submitted electronically via the provided link.
