Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for up to two postdoctoral positions on the topic of 'dust in the extragalactic environment' as a part of the research project "The Origin and Fate of Dust in the Universe" funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg foundation. The project is a collaboration between astronomers and theoretical chemists at Chalmers University of Technology and Gothenburg University. More information available on the project webpage: .

To join this collaboration, we seek ambitious, highly-qualified postdoctoral researchers with experience in observations and modeling of dust around e.g. evolved stars, novae, supermassive black holes and in the local and high-redshift interstellar medium, and who are interested in extending this to the extragalactic environment.

The successful candidates will join a growing and vibrant research environment encompassing the Chalmers Division for Astronomy and Plasma Physics and the Onsala Space Observatory (host of the Swedish National Facility for Radio Astronomy and includes the Nordic ALMA Regional Center Node). In addition to the close collaboration with Gothenburg University, the postdocs will work with, and be embedded in, the internationally active research groups of Profs. Susanne Aalto (Galactic Nuclei; [email protected]), Kirsten Knudsen (high-z; [email protected]) and Wouter Vlemmings (evolved stars; [email protected]).

The positions will initially be for 2 years. The application deadline is Aug. 29th (submission link). Preferred starting date during autumn 2021 / winter 2021-22, but can be negotiated. Informal inquiries can be addressed to any of the three Chalmers PIs.

Included Benefits: 

The positions come with generous fringe benefits, including health insurance, retirement benefits, eligibility for parental leave, etc.
