Postdoctoral position on Galactic Chemo-dynamical structures

Applicants are invited for a postdoctoral position at Shanghai Astronomical observatory, in Shanghai, China. The successful applicant will work with Dr. Ling Zhu on the project “disentangling galaxy formation through a population-orbit superposition model” funded by National Science Foundation of China.

The project includes developing/improving a population-orbit superposition model, uncovering orbital structures and their age, metallicity information of real galaxies by applying the method to IFU observations, comparing the orbital structures of real galaxies with cosmological simulations, and tracing back the formation of these structures in simulations. 

You should have a Doctoral/PhD degree in astronomy or astrophysics. The idea candidate has a background in galactic structure and dynamics, stellar spectroscopy, chemical evolution or hydrodynamical simulations. Good programming skills are desirable.

The position will be for 2 years with a possible extension for other 2 years. The starting date is negotiable but could as early as 01 March 2020. We will have a competitive salary, and travel budget is available. 

Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae and brief research summary, and arrange for three reference letters to be sent directly to Dr. Ling Zhu at lzhu@shao.ac.cn. For full consideration, applications should arrive before December 31, 2019.
