Job Announcement Text: 

We invite applications for one (possibly two, contingent upon funding) postdoctoral researchers in observational studies of high-redshift galaxies. Closing date: 14 Jan, 2022.

The position(s) are available from fall 2022 (earlier is negotiable), and will be available for 2 years, with a possible 1-year extension contingent upon performance. 

The postdoc(s) will work in the group of Associate Professor Matthew Hayes, and will focus upon galaxy evolution at high-z/reionization epoch. We are searching for highly qualified scientists to exploit Large Programmes at ESO/VLT and JWST.  Experience with fiber-fed multi-object spectrographs or slitless spectroscopy with HST would be a strong advantage; knowledge of galaxy evolution, reionization, starbursts, or Lyman-alpha emission would be preferred. Interested parties are encouraged to get in touch by email, or organize in-person discussions at the 2022 AAS in Salt Lake City.

The applicant must have a PhD (or equivalent) in Astrophysics (or related). Stockholm University strives to be a workplace free from discrimination, with equal opportunities. The department consists of 15 faculty staff, ~20 senior researchers and postdocs, and ~25 PhD students; the group is affiliated with the Oskar Klein Centre. Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and has an international character – most researchers have an international background and English is commonly used both at the department and in daily life.

To apply for this position, please use the web-based application form in English. The application should comprise, in PDF format: a cover letter (1 page), a CV, and a statement of relevant scientific expertise/proposed project (max 3 pages). The applicant should ensure that three reference letters are submitted by the closing date.

Included Benefits: 

The positions include full Swedish social benefits: e.g. medical insurance and parental leave.
