The Centro de Astronomía at the Universidad de 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.
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 21, 2019. 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 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.
