Job Announcement Text: 

We invite applications for two postdoctoral fellowships in Stellar Physics: SU FV-3674-19.

The positions involve full-time employment for two years, with the possibility of extension. Start date per agreement during 2020.

We seek to employ two exceptional postdoctoral researchers associated with the ERC-funded project The Metal-Poor Galaxy, whose main focus is stellar spectroscopy and Galactic Archaeology.

The first position involves primarily the analysis and interpretation of data from million-star surveys of the Milky Way. The second is theoretically focussed on the development of improved models of radiation transport in metal-poor stellar atmospheres, with the ultimate purpose to understand the origin of the elements.

The positions include travel support and will afford the possibility to interact with the neighbouring institute for solar physics, the extensive theoretical and observational supernovae and galaxy groups, other computational astrophysics groups, and the larger astronomy and physics community at Stockholm University and the Oskar Klein Centre.

Stockholm University is located in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden. Stockholm is a picturesque and dynamic international city surrounded by water and nature. Our department, which consists of over 60 phd students, postdocs and faculty members is also very international.  The working language is English.

Qualified candidates with an interest in theoretical and/or observational stellar spectroscopy are strongly encouraged to apply.

Please apply via Stockholm's online recruitment system. Access to the system and complete application information are given in the link below. 

Stockholm University strives to be a workplace free from discrimination and with equal opportunities for all.

Included Benefits: 

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