A 3-year postdoctoral fellowship is available within the Molecular Astrophysics group located at Leiden Observatory. The postdoc will be part of an international team studying the physical and chemical evolution from collapsing cores to planet-forming disks and exoplanets centered around ALMA and (guaranteed time) JWST data.
The postdoc is expected to co-supervise PhD or MSc students and is encouraged to also pursue a personal research program. The position can start anytime in fall 2019.
Candidates with an observational and/or modeling background in astrochemistry, star formation, circumstellar disks, submillimeter/ infrared spectroscopy, or planet formation are encouraged to apply.
Leiden Observatory is a lively institute carrying out observational, interpretative and theoretical research in the fields of the star and planet formation, laboratory astrophysics, galactic structure, the formation, dynamics and evolution of (high-redshift) galaxies and their nuclei, and cosmology. Leiden is a charming town, located close to a major airport.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae, publication list, and a brief statement of research experience and interests, and arrange for at least three letters of reference to be uploaded on the relevant website. Review of applications will start on December 1 2018.
