Job Announcement Text: 

The department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Toledo invites applications for a postdoctoral position in the area of protostars and star formation. The selected applicant will work with Dr. Tom Megeath on a NASA funded program using archival Herschel, Spitzer, WISE, NEOWISE and HST data to create a database of protostars and their variability, extending the Herschel Orion Protostar Survey (HOPS) to all surveyed star forming regions within 500 pc. They will draw on the expertise, tools, and collaborative network established for HOPS, work with graduate and undergraduate students, lead investigations based on these data, and obtain follow-up data using ALMA, SOFIA and other telescopes. The University of Toledo is a partner in the 4.3 meter Discovery Channel Telescope, and the postdoc will be encouraged to use this facility. They will also have the opportunity to participate in JWST proposal planning utilizing the database. The appointment will be for a minimum of two years starting in the summer/fall of 2019; additional years will depend on available funding. The astronomy program at UToledo currently has six faculty, three postdocs, and 16 graduate students who maintain a vigorous program of research and public outreach. The program was recently selected as one of three areas of research excellence within the university. Requirements are a Ph.D. in astronomy and research experience in IR and sub-mm astronomy. Expertise in star and planet formation will be very helpful. Please send a cover letter, CV, a statement of research interest up to two pages in length, and contact information for at least three references to s.megeath@utoledo.edu. Review of applications will begin on January 4th. The University of Toledo is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer and Women and members of minority groups are encouraged to apply.
