Applications are invited for a post-doctoral research position at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. The successful applicant will work with Prof. Marusa Bradac on high redshift galaxies and their role in reionizing the Universe, in connection with the large approved James Webb Space Telescope and HST datasets from CANUCS program. Available resources also include ALMA, HST, Keck, Subaru, and VLT data. Previous experience in gravitational lensing analyses is considered a plus, but not necessary.

Applicants should submit a statement of research interests, publication list, CV, and should arrange for three letters of reference to be sent. E-mail submission to [email protected] is preferred. Full consideration will be given to applications received by December 15, 2021.
