The Kapteyn Astronomical Institute is offering a Postdoctoral Research Position funded by NOVA and the ERC Consolidator Grant BUILDUP led by Prof. Karina Caputi.
This Postdoctoral Position is offered in the area of galaxy evolution at high redshifts and is particularly focused on the preparation and later scientific exploitation of James Webb Space Telescope's data. This position is offered for two years, with the possibility of renewal for two more years based on performance.
The successful candidate should hold a PhD in Astronomy at the moment of taking the position. Previous experience in the analysis of deep galaxy surveys is not mandatory, but will be an important criterion for selection.
The Kapteyn Astronomical Institute at the University of Groningen is world-wide recognised for the breadth and quality of its research and is one of the four Dutch astronomical departments constituting NOVA. The Institute is located at the same site as the low-energy division of the Netherlands Institute for Space Research (SRON), which gives Groningen a strategic position within Dutch Astronomy.
The application package should be sent by email directly to Prof. Karina Caputi (email@example.com) and should include: a brief CV (2-3 pages), complete list of publications, and a short statement of research experience and future research interests (2-3 pages) -- please send all documents in .pdf format. The applicant should arrange for three reference letters to be sent independently to the same email address. The deadline for applications is 18th March 2020. The review process will start immediately, but applications will be considered until the position is filled.
