Applications are invited for a research adjunct position (postdoctoral research equivalent) at the Astronomical Observatory, University of Warsaw (Poland). Successful applicants will search for and analyze binary stellar systems using the gravitational microlensing technique. Research tasks will also involve the estimation of the mass function of stars in the Galactic bulge. Binary systems will be searched for in photometric databases of large-scale surveys. Binary systems found will be studied to estimate properties of the whole population (taking into account detection efficiency) and to characterize in detail the most interesting systems (e.g., systems with a tertiary body).
Candidates will be hired full-time for two and a half years with a possibility of an extension for additional two and a half years. The employment should start between Jan and Sep 2023. We offer a salary at the maximum value allowed by a grant from the Polish National Science Center. Job location: University of Warsaw Astronomical Observatory (Poland). Standard benefits under Polish labor law.
