Applications are invited for a postdoctoral Position in Galaxy evolution with multi-wavelength and spatially resolved observations (Post doc position - D.D. 31/2018) at the National Institute of Astrophysics (INAF), Padova Observatory.
The Padova Observatory is one of the main structures of INAF, a network of 17 research institutes spread throughout Italy. INAF is a world leading institute and is a major partner of ESO.
The successful applicant will work in the extragalactic group in Padova and join the international GASP team. He/she will investigate the physical processes removing gas from galaxies as a function of environment and their effects on the galaxy evolutionary history. The primary focus is the analysis of the multi-wavelength dataset of galaxies at low redshift (MUSE, ALMA, APEX, JVLA and UVIT data) of the GASP survey (GAs Stripping Phenomena in galaxies, http://web.oapd.inaf.it/gasp/).
A fraction of the time will be available for independent research, and independent collaborations are encouraged.
The position is offered for 2 years, renewable, with anticipated starting date around March 2019, negotiable.
Prospective candidates are encouraged to contact Dr. Bianca Maria Poggianti (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Benedetta Vulcani (email@example.com) for additional information. The official call for applications, along with all the required documents, can be found at:
Applicants should have a PhD in physics, astronomy or related subject by the time of the appointment. Experience in IFU spectroscopy, or ALMA and molecular gas observations, or HI observations will be a plus, as well as mastery of hydrodynamical simulations.
Applications and three separate reference letters should be submitted via e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1, 2018.
INAF is an equal opportunity employer and women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
