The Centro de Astronomía at the University of Antofagasta (CITEVA) in Chile is seeking enthusiastic young researchers to carry out cutting-edge research on star formation, galaxy evolution, kinematics, and dynamics, Galactic structure, stellar populations, star clusters, variable stars, binary stars, or planetary sciences. We prefer candidates with a team spirit, interested in building strong collaborations with the Chilean and international community. To support their research, successful applicants will not only have access to the 10% Chilean time but also to major surveys in which CITEVA is involved, such as SDSS-IV, LSST, VVV, VISIONS, Gaia, and MINDSTEp.
For the first step of the selection process, applicants are strongly encouraged to contact us prior to the deadline at email@example.com to discuss possible projects. A CV, a list of publications, a research statement, and contact information of three referees should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before July 2, 2018. Selected applicants will then gain the required sponsorship from the University to access local postdoctoral funding sources.
CITEVA is based in Antofagasta, a large and rapidly expanding (500,000 inhabitants estimated by 2020) coastal city in Northern Chile, on the edge of the spectacular Atacama desert, where ALMA and VLT are located, and where the E-ELT is being built. CITEVA is the premier professional group in Northern Chile.
