Job Announcement Text: 

The Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) is offering a postdoctoral fellowship to work in star formation with support from the European Research Council (ERC). The ERC Advanced Grant project Ejection Accretion Structures in YSOs (EASY) aims to understand the origin of outflows from young stars using guaranteed time on a variety of facilities including LOFAR, e-MERLIN, JWST, GRAVITY and SPIRou. The fellow recruited will work primarily in the field of spectro-polarimetry using data from SPIRou on the CFHT to help understand magnetic fields in young stars and their disks. This fellowship is available for 4 years beginning December 2018 (the precise starting date is negotiable). Remuneration is based on Science Foundation Ireland Scales 2A or 2B ((see here) and starting salary will depend on experience.
