We invite applications for a postdoctoral research position funded by the Swedish Research Council (PI:S. Aalto). We study the properties and evolution of galaxies with a focus on the evolution of dust obscured luminous infrared galaxies (LIRGs). In this project we use observational and modelling methods that can probe inside the obscuring veil to study the feeing and feedback of the obscured activity. We are seeking ambitious, highly-qualified postdoctoral researchers with experience in any of the following areas:
1- mm/submm/radio interferometric studies of nearby and/or distant galaxies, AGNs and starbursts
2- molecular astrochemistry, radiative transfer modelling, cosmic rays, high energy astrophysics
3- galactic dynamics studies, outflows and feedback
4- experience with numerical techniques for modeling galaxy evolution
The research team is part of the Chalmers Extragalactic Research Unit which belongs to a growing and vibrant research environment encompassing the Division for Astronomy and Plasma Physics and the Onsala Space Observatory – host of the Swedish National Facility for Radio Astronomy which is also the location of the Nordic ALMA Regional Center Node. Our team is also leading, and participating in, a number of international collaborations, including ALMA surveys and Large Programmes.
The position comes with funds for a laptop + travel funds for conferences.
