Big Bang to Big Data (B3D, https://b3d.nrw) is a new interdisciplinary cluster for research, technology and education in data-intensive radio astronomy. B3D combines radio astronomy and astrophysics with data science and data technology. Nine scientific staff positions are now open in basic research, development, administration and science communication (https://b3d.nrw/en/stellenausschreibung/). The advertised positions are temporary and are to be filled as soon as possible. Applications will be accepted until the positions are filled. A background in astronomy and/or data science is desirable, but please see the individual advertisements for details. We welcome applications for more than one of the positions at the same time.
B3D is an association of eight universities and research institutes in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW). We are involved in the development, operation and use of leading radio observatories (including ALMA, APEX, Effelsberg, FYST/CCAT-prime, LOFAR, MeerKAT, SKA, SOFIA) and the processing and analysis of their data, or contribute related data science and technology. We collaborate with a number of industry partners. We have joined forces to create the basis for the processing and analysis of large data volumes of current and future radio observatories, including machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Salaries are according to the state or federal emloyment tarif including social and health care benefits.
