Applications are invited for several postdoctoral fellowships at Chalmers University of Technology (Gothenburg, Sweden) and partner institutes as part of the Chalmers Initiative on Cosmic Origins (CICO):
1) Chalmers Cosmic Origins Fellowship: One or more positions are 3-year fellowships at Chalmers;
2) Chalmers-MPIA Cosmic Origins Fellowship: One fellowship is part of the Chalmers-MPIA fellowship that is a 4-year position, shared between Chalmers (2 years) and Max-Planck-Inst. for Astronomy in Heidelberg, Germany (2 years);
3) Chalmers-UVA Cosmic Origins Fellowship: One fellowship (funding pending) is part of the Chalmers-UVA fellowship that is a 4-year position, shared between Chalmers (2 years) and Dept. of Astronomy, Univ. of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, USA (2 years);
4) Chalmers-MPE Cosmic Origins Fellowship: One fellowship (funding pending) is part of the Chalmers-MPE fellowship that is a 4-year position, shared between Chalmers (2 years) and the Center for Astrochemical Studies at the Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics (MPE) (Garching, Germany) (2 years).
A successful applicant will lead an ambitious, independent research program related to Cosmic Origins science, expected to align with the wide range of research at Chalmers and partner institutes. Relevant themes include galaxy formation & evolution, ISM, astrochemistry, star cluster formation, high- & low-mass star formation, astrochemistry and planet formation & evolution, from both theoretical & observational perspectives. See www.cosmicorigins.space for more information.
The fellow is expected to participate in departmental activities, and promote collaboration between CICO and its partner institutes.
