Vienna offers a University Assistant (Postdoc) position within the extragalactic group of Prof. Bodo Ziegler for 4 years starting summer 2022 with application deadline 25th June 2022.

We are seeking a highly motivated and qualified senior astronomer able to conduct independent research and to attract funding and observing time. We expect excellence in optical/nearinfrared astronomy with strong expertise in multiobject or 3D/IFU spectroscopy and very good experience with galaxy kinematics and morphologies. Our group exploits mainly HST and ESO/VLT to quantitatively study distant galaxies and mapping local galaxies with MOS/IFU spectroscopy and investigating x-ray detected groups and clusters (galaxy kinematics, stellar populations, star formation, AGN activity). We are a member of the ELT/MOSAIC and Wide-field Spectroscopic Telescope instrument consortia so that participation in the respective Science Working Groups is expected, too.

Contract will be for 40 hours/week with salary regulated by collective bargaining agreement. Applicants must have a PhD degree in astrophysics or a closely related field. A very good knowledge of English and the ability to work in teams, high oral and written expressiveness as well as didactic qualifications (up to 4 hours/week participation in teaching) are required.
