The Sydney Institute for Astronomy at the University of Sydney has recently advertised a postdoctoral position in astrophotonics and exoplanet instrumentation / observational research. This is primarily to support the GLINT project, which is developing integrated-optic photonic nulling technologies for deployment at a range of large telescopes (such as Subaru) and other observatories worldwide. There is also the opportunity to participate in the wider range of astrophysical research undertaken within the group at University of Sydney with themes in high contrast/high resolution imaging, optical interferometric polarimetry and spectro-interferometry. We are particularly seeking skills at the boundary of Astronomy data analysis and interpretation, coding development, and interfacing to hardware.
