Announcement
Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in high angular resolution astronomy at the Universidad Andres Bello in Santiago, Chile.

The successful applicant will work with Prof. Keiichi Ohnaka on high angular resolution observations of cool evolved stars with optical/infrared interferometric techniques. The work will include the analysis and interpretation of high angular resolution data of stars in late evolutionary stages, for example, imaging of the surface, atmosphere, and circumstellar environment and radiative transfer modeling to characterize their physical properties. Experience in optical/infrared interferomery and/or research on evolved stars can be an asset but not mandatory.

The successful applicant will have access to the 10% of the telescope time on international facilities in Chile, such as VLT, ALMA, Gemini-South, CTIO, and Magellan.

The successful applicant should have, or expect to soon obtain, a PhD in astronomy or astrophysics. The starting date can be flexible. The appointment will be for two years. 

Interested applicants should submit a CV, publication list, description of research interests and arrange three letters of reference directly sent to Prof. Keiichi Ohnaka ([email protected]). Applications submitted by May 31, 2022 will receive full consideration, but late applications may be considered until the position is filled. For further information, please contact Prof. Keiichi Ohnaka ([email protected]).
