We invite applications to join Andrew Pontzen's GMGalaxies team as a postdoctoral research fellow.
The Astrophysics Group at UCL is heavily involved in cosmological and extragalactic research, which ranges across observational, theoretical and computational topics. We are seeking a postdoctoral researcher who will work on computational simulations of galaxy formation. The post-holder will be based in the Cosmoparticle Hub in the Kathleen Lonsdale Building (www.ucl.ac.uk/cosmoparticle).
The post-holder will perform and/or analyse numerical simulations of galaxy formation, with particular reference to observational constraints and/or dynamical models.
This post is funded by the ERC for 3 years in the first instance.
To hold or be about to obtain a post-graduate degree in a relevant subject area: astronomy, physics, statistics or related fields. Appointment at Grade 7 (£35,965 - £43,470 per annum, inclusive of London Allowance) is dependent upon having been awarded a PhD; if this is not the case, initial appointment will be at research assistant Grade 6B (£31,479-£33,194 per annum) with payment at Grade 7 being backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis.
To have an established track record of performing or analysing numerical simulations of galaxy or structure formation.
To have a broad understanding of relevant developments in observational and theoretical galaxy formation.
