Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for Prize fellowships in the Hintze Centre for Astrophysical Surveys.

The appointments are expected to start on or before 1st October 2023, are for two years in the first instance, extendable for a third year subject to funding.

The Department of Physics invites applications for up to three prestigious fellowships in the University of Oxford’s Hintze Centre for Astrophysical Surveys. Funded through the Hintze Family Charitable Foundation, the Centre is focused on the exploitation of current surveys to build a platform for Oxford participation in LSST, Euclid, JWST, SKA and the EELT.

We are seeking up to three Hintze Prize Fellows to lead personal research programmes relevant to the current interests of Oxford Astrophysics. The Hintze Centre’s themes are in observational cosmology, galaxy evolution, and astrophysical transients.

Successful candidates will have, or be about to receive, a PhD in a relevant area of astronomy or astrophysics, and should have a demonstrated capacity for independent work and be capable of initiating and leading research in a lively group.

The Fellows may be requested to assist with the supervision of graduate students and outreach activities as requested by the Director of the Hintze Centre. Applicants must have excellent communication skills.  Fellows will have the opportunity to teach and may benefit from a college association. A generous budget for travel and computing is available for all Hintze Fellows.

A proven track record of research in cosmology, galaxy evolution or astrophysical transients, and the potential to exploit the facilities/surveys in which Oxford is involved are required.

Fellows will be expected to collaborate with faculty members in the Astrophysics sub-department in areas of common interest.

The post-holder will have the opportunity to teach.
