Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in observational extragalactic astronomy to work on multi-wavelength studies of high-redshift dusty star-forming galaxies. This will involve exploitation of sub-mm spectral and continuum data (ie. from ALMA, SCUBA-2). Staff in the Centre for Astrophysics Research at the University of Hertfordshire, actively working in this area, are Drs. Kristen Coppin (project lead), Jim Geach, Jason Stevens, and Dan Smith. This project is funded by an award from the UK Science & Technology Facilities Council.

The position is available for up to 2.5 years with a start date ideally between March 1 and July 1 2019. Candidates should have a PhD in astronomy/astrophysics before taking up the post.
