The Astronomy Group at Universidad Diego Portales (UDP) invites applications for postdoctoral research fellowships in astronomy on the study of Active Galactic Nuclei and galaxy evolution with Prof. Roberto Assef, Prof. Claudio Ricci and Prof. Manuel Aravena. Selected candidates will be sponsored by a UDP faculty member to apply for FONDECYT postdoctoral grants of 3 years. The expected beginning of these fellowship is March 15, 2020. The eligibility is limited to researchers that have received their PhD between Jan 1, 2016 and the FONDECYT application deadline (expected to be in July 2019). Exceptions for women with children born in this period are possible according to FONDECYT guidelines.
Santiago hosts a large and vibrant scientific community working on AGN, with ~45 scientists distributed in four universities and three institutes (see www.agnsantiago.cl). While at UDP, successful candidates will qualify as members of the Chilean community and will be eligible for the 10% privileged access to all telescopes in Chile, including ALMA, Gemini South, VLT, Magellan, CTIO, SOAR, La Silla, APEX, and ASTE, as well as to future facilities such as ELT, LSST, GMT, and CTA. Faculty at UDP are involved in numerous projects, among which the BASS survey, the Hot DOGs collaboration, the NuSTAR collaboration, the GATOS collaboration, ASPECS, COSMOS, and SPT-SMG.
Applications should be submitted by e-mail in pdf format to email@example.com by June 20, 2019 to ensure full consideration. The applications should include a 1-page research statement (including current and previous research and a research plan at UDP), and a CV (with a publication list). In addition, applicants should provide the names and contact information of 3 references willing to provide letters of recommendation on request. We encourage applicants to get in contact with professors Roberto Assef, Claudio Ricci and Manuel Aravena. We encourage applications from women and minority groups.
