Job Announcement Text: 

INAF is recruiting a researcher who will join the recently funded SKA HI project, Empowering SKA as a Probe of galaxy Evolution with HI, led by Leslie Hunt at the Arcetri Astrophysical Observatory (AAO). In order to quantify the effects of gas and dust on galaxy evolution, the fellow will lead the effort to compile multi-wavelength datasets from the project archives and from the literature for local galaxies and high-redshift galaxy populations. After assessing selection effects, the fellow will be responsible for the derivation of scaling relations of fundamental galaxy parameters to deduce the influence of atomic gas on evolution. Work will be carried out in the context of a large national collaboration with access to vast proprietary datasets.

Applicants should have a strong publication record as well as experience with multi-wavelength data sets and/or expertise in the field of galaxy evolution, in particular for dwarf galaxies. Applications (including CV, publication list and a description of past research and planned contribution to the project) and 3 reference letters should be sent via email to inafoaarcetri@pcert.postecert.it by January 30, 2018. The appointment has a duration of 2 years. For more details on the position and how to apply see link below.

The position is based in the AAO (Florence, Italy) with the possibility of frequent travel for international conferences, and for collaborations within Italy and abroad with the APERTIF project in the Netherlands. The Arcetri Observatory is part of INAF, a network of 16 research institutes spread throughout Italy. INAF is a major partner of ESO, with access to important observing facilities including VLT and ALMA. It is also the Italian representative within the SKA project, and a member of the Large Binocular Telescope consortium.  INAF is an equal-opportunity employer; minorities and women are encouraged to apply.
