Post-doctoral Fellowships: The National Centre for Radio Astrophysics of the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (NCRA-TIFR) at Pune, India invites applications for post-doctoral fellowships.

Research activities at NCRA-TIFR are centered on low frequency radio astronomy, where the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope (GMRT) is a major international facility.   NCRA offers challenging opportunities to work at the frontiers of astronomy and astrophysics, as well as instrumentation and software development. Faculty members  carry out research in a wide range of areas, including solar physics, pulsars, active galactic nuclei, the interstellar medium, supernova remnants, the Galactic Centre, nearby galaxies, high-redshift galaxies, fundamental constant evolution, and the epoch of reionization. Candidates from other areas of astronomy having potential synergies with research activities at NCRA-TIFR are encouraged to apply, as well as those with special technical skills. 

The post-doctoral positions are in two categories: (1) independent post-doctoral fellowships, and (2) project post-doctoral fellowships. Further details, including current salaries and benefits, are available at  the website http://www.ncra.tifr.res.in/ncra/opportunities/post-doctoral-fellowships. Candidates should apply for specific fellowships of their interest; however, all applicants will automatically be considered for all available post-doctoral fellowships.

Applications containing a curriculum vitae, a research plan, and the names and e-mail addresses of three or more referees should be sent to the Dean, NCRA-TIFR, at  the e-mail address deanncra@ncra.tifr.res.in, by October 31, 2017. Applicants should also request their referees to send in recommendation letters by the same deadline. Any enquiries should also be sent to this e-mail address.

Included Benefits:
