A postdoctoral position to study circumbinary planets

 

We invite inventive and talented individuals to apply for a postdoctoral research position and join the Sun, Stars and Exoplanet research group, at the University of Birmingham. 

The successful candidate will join a vibrant group of astronomers. The Sun, Stars, and Exoplanet group consist of four permanent researchers: Amaury Triaud, Guy Davies, Andrea Miglio and Bill Chaplin, along two main research themes: exoplanets and asteroseismology. Three of us hold ERC grants. The group benefits from newly refurbished offices at the heart of a beautiful campus. 

Members of the group have responsibilities in SPECULOOS, TESS, Kepler and the PLATO 2.0 Mission. 

The successful applicant will work primarily with Dr Amaury Triaud as part of the BEBOP radial-velocity survey for circumbinary planets, an ERC and Leverhulme Trust funded project with large observing allocations on HARPS (ESO) and SOPHIE (OHP). We particularly welcome applicants with expertise related with high-resolution spectroscopy, various statistical data analysis methods, data mining, algorithm development and machine learning. The position comes with a generous allowance to cover international travel and computing. 

Mirroring the fact that exoplanets are diverse, we welcome applications from all backgrounds to enrich our research group. 

 

Salary: £30,395 to £39,609 depending on experience. With potential progression once in post to £42,036 a year.

Duration: 36 months

Start date: between 01 October 2019 and 01 June 2020.

Application deadline: 15 June 2019 for full consideration.

 

The application form will need

1) A CV & list of publications, highlighting up to five most relevant works.

2) A research statement (up to 1000 words). This should describe your previous research experience, your skill set, and your future professional plans.

3) Contact information for up to three academic references who can provide letters in support of your application.
