Job Announcement Text: 

We invite applications for a postdoctoral research position funded by the European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grant HIDDeN: Exploring the Hidden Dusty Nuclei of Galaxies (PI:S. Aalto). The HIDDeN team studies the properties and evolution of galaxies with a focus on the rapid growth in dust obscured luminous infrared galaxies (LIRGs).  In the HIDDeN project we use multi-wavelength techniques, including recently developed mm and submm observational methods, to reach behind the curtain of dust in the obscured centers of U/LIRGs, allowing us to undertake ground-breaking studies of heretofore hidden rapid evolutionary phases of nearby and distant galaxies .  We are seeking ambitious, highly-qualified postdoctoral researchers with experience in any of the following areas:

1- mm/submm/radio interferometric studies of nearby and/or distant galaxies, AGNs and starbursts
2- molecular astrochemistry, radiative transfer modelling, cosmic rays, high energy astrophysics
3- galactic dynamics studies, outflows and feedback
4- experience with numerical techniques for modeling galaxy evolution


The research team is part of the  growing and vibrant research environment encompassing the Chalmers Division for Astronomy and Plasma Physics and the Onsala Space Observatory – host of the Swedish National Facility for Radio Astronomy which is also hosting the Nordic ALMA Regional Center Node.  Our team is active in a number of international collaborations. including ALMA surveys and Large Programmes. The position comes with funds for a laptop + travel funds for conferences. Division website: https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/see/research/Astronomy-and-Plasma...

Included Benefits: 

This position includes a generous yearly travel allowance as well as access to state-of-the-art observing and computing facilities.The position also includes health benefits, parental leave and paid vacation.
