Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for a 2-year postdoctoral position (extendable up to 3 years) in the field of galaxy evolution with Prof. Chelsea Sharon at Yale-NUS College in Singapore. The successful applicant will primarily work with ALMA and VLA observations of z~2-3 lensed galaxies with some multi-band archival HST data. Experience working with radio/millimeter interferometric data, HST observations, and/or gravitational lens modelling are desirable, but not required.

The approximate start date is August 2022. Applicants ideally should have a PhD in astronomy, physics, or related subject by the start of the appointment, but a 6 month probationary period is allowed while degree confirmation is being finalized. The successful candidate will receive relocation expenses, health insurance, and a generous travel allowance (some elligibility requirements may apply).

Yale-NUS College is a small undergraduate-only liberal arts college in Singapore, jointly founded by Yale University and the National University of Singapore (NUS). While the College is scheduled to be merged with an honors program at NUS in 2025, all contracts will be honored at NUS and postdoctoral scholars will not be significantly affected. For more information about the College, please visit

Applications will be considered starting January 1st, but later applications will be accepted. Interested applicants should email a combined PDF to Prof. Sharon ([email protected]) including "Postdoc application" and your name in the subject line. The application should include a cover letter, CV, and a summary of past/planned research. The CV should include a complete list of publications and contact information for three references (letters of recommendation will be requested later). The 2-4 page research statement need not be customized for this position. Instead, please focus your efforts on a 1-2 page cover letter that briefly summarizes your research interests, any skills relevant to this position, and how being at an undergraduate college in Southeast Asia with a relatively small astronomy community fits with your research and career plans. Please reach out to Prof. Sharon with any questions.
