Job Announcement Text: 

The Astronomical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences invites applications for an 8-month full-time Visiting Research Fellow program to study star-forming compact galaxies that exhibit possible signatures of active galactic nuclei. Our scientific goals are to better understand the role of star-forming galaxies in the Epoch of Re-Ionization and to characterize accretion processes around intermediate-mass black holes as possible precursors to super-massive black holes hosted in large galaxies.

We were recently awarded new observations of so-called “Blueberry" and "Green Pea” galaxies with the VLA and XMM-Newton. Thus, we are looking for a candidate who is very experienced with radio interferometry, UV photometry/imaging, and/or X-ray spectral analysis of faint targets. Our project provides a highly competitive salary above the standards in Czechia for a postdoctoral researcher.

To apply, please send a motivation letter and CV to jiri.svoboda@asu.cas.cz before July 14, 2021. Please also ensure two letters of recommendation.

Expected start of the project: September 2021

Duration: After this 8-month project, it may be possible to prolong the stay of a postdoctoral researcher dependent upon the result of pre-submitted funding applications.
