Job Announcement Text: 

The Astronomy Department at Stockholm University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research fellowship position to work with Dr. Angela Adamo on star formation and feedback processes in high-redshift lensed galaxies.

The position is available from Summer 2021, for a period of 2 years. A third year may be offered upon funding availability. 

The research will focus on star formation and feedback at the highest spatial resolution in gravitationally lensed high-redshift galaxies, developing new analysis tools to exploit HST, ESO/VLT and upcoming JWST observations. Experience in multi wavelength analyses of star formation in local/high redshift galaxies and lensing models are considered fundamental during the selection process. The position will see the successful applicant joining the Galaxy group and afford the possibility to interact with the extensive theoretical and observational groups within the Oskar Klein Centre for Cosmoparticle Physics.

Stockholm University strives to be a workplace free from discrimination, with equal opportunities for all. The Astronomy Department consists of 18 faculty staff, ~20 senior and postdoctoral researchers, and ~30 PhD students. Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and has an international character – most researchers have an international background and English is commonly used both at the department and in daily life.

To apply for this position, please use the Stockholm University web-based application form in English. The application should comprise, in PDF format: a cover letter (1 page), curriculum vitae, statement of relevant scientific expertise/proposed project (max 3 pages), the name of at least two references. Reference letters should be sent to not later than the closing date.

Included Benefits: 

The positions include full Swedish social benefits such as medical insurance and parental leave.
