Job Announcement Text: 

National Centre for Nuclear Research opens competition for two doctoral scholarships in the project SONATA BIS 2018/30/E/ST9/00082 (founded by National Science Centre): „ASTROdust: a complete census of dust attenuation in galaxies based on the analysis of millions of galaxies observed by Herschel”.

The main objectives of the scholarship are related to the AstroDust project for which the main goal is to statistically investigate the attenuation of dust in galaxies and its dependence on the types of galaxies in different space ages. For the analysis, it will use a unique sample of one million galaxies observed in the infrared by the Herschel satellite. In the project, we are planning to construct the correct attenuation curves for different types of galaxies and to examine how they have evolved over the past 10 billion years. This will lead to a re-evaluation of the basic physical properties of star-forming galaxies. Moreover, the statistically huge sample of galaxies will allow using machine learning algorithms to classify different types of infrared galaxies according to their dust properties.

The successful candidates have to qualify for doctoral studies at NCBJ Graduate School of Physics and Chemistry (send the application in time and pass the exam) and are expected to start his/her research in October 2019. 

all detailed requirements and documents can be found here: NCBJ PhD possitions

The recruitment process will be finished on July 20th, 2019. Then the successful candidate has 10 days to submit his/her application to NCBJ Graduate School of Physics and Chemistry. The exam will be conducted in early September.
