The Melbourne node of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Centre of Excellence for All Sky Astrophysics in 3-Dimensions (ASTRO-3D) invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Position in modelling of high-redshift galaxy formation and 21cm fluctuations in the distant Universe. The successful applicant will work with Prof. Stuart Wyithe and members of ASTRO-3D on problems associated with star formation at high redshift, and the connection between galaxy evolution and cosmic reionization. A fraction of the time (~20%) will be available for independent research, and collaborations with other national and international ASTRO-3D partner institutions are strongly encouraged.
The ASTRO-3D center spans six (6) Australian universities, three (3) national infrastructure facilities, and seven (7) international partner institutions. ASTRO-3D combines Australia's leading optical, infrared and radio telescope technologies with sophisticated theoretical simulations and ambitious new data intensive science techniques to build a comprehensive picture of the evolution of matter, the chemical elements, and ionizing radiation in the Universe from the Epoch of Reionization to the present day.
The position is offered for three years, with anticipated starting date before or around September 2020. Prospective candidates are encouraged to contact Prof. Stuart Wyithe (email@example.com) for additional information.
Applications should be submitted through the University of Melbourne web site (position number 0049329) and must include a CV, list of publications, a brief statement of research interests and plans, and the names of three referees. Additionally, letters of reference should be sent directly to Shirley Els (firstname.lastname@example.org) by the application deadline.
