PDRA in the links between AGN and galaxy evolution
The University of Sheffield, UK
Salary: £30,688 - £38,833
Applications are invited for a 3-year Post-Doctoral Research Associate Position in observational astronomy within the Astronomy Group based at The University of Sheffield, UK. The successful applicant will work with Dr James Mullaney and Prof Clive Tadhunter on investigating the role of AGN in galaxy evolution through the study of the links between star formation and nuclear activity. This research will involve the analysis and modelling of archival Spitzer, Herschel and HST data for complete samples of radio-loud and radio-quiet AGN. Observations with ALMA are also anticipated.
Further information on the activities of the astronomy group at The University of Sheffield can be found at: http://www.astro.group.shef.ac.uk
The PDRA will be expected to hold a PhD in astrophysics at the start of the appointment, and to have experience of the analysis and interpretation of mid- to far-IR observations of galaxies and/or AGN. A good general knowledge of the astrophysics of AGN is desirable.
As part of your application, please upload a copy of your CV including a list of publications, plus a cover letter briefly explaining why you are applying for the role and how your experience is suited to the project. Please also provide the names and email addresses of three referees.
Start date: 1st April, 2018, or as soon as possible thereafter
