We offer two positions for prospective young researchers, 1 postdoctoral position and 1 PhD position to work on a project "Unification of Black Holes across the Mass Scale", which aims to enhance our current knowledge about the accretion physics in super-massive black holes in active galactic nuclei and stellar-mass black holes in X-ray binaries.
The postdoctoral researcher will perform the spectral analysis using multi-wavelength observations (from radio to X-rays) to study the spectral states of AGN. The focus of the analysis will be given to (i) spectral decomposition of the nuclear and host-galaxy emission of low-luminosity AGN and (ii) investigation of a possible relation between the accretion state and the radio loudness. The promising candidate should already have some experience with the astronomical data analysis in radio, UV or X-ray domain. Good knowledge of statistical methods, computational skills, high motivation and ability to work independently as well as in the team collaboration are expected. The position is available from May 2019 and is opened for 1 year, after which it can be prolonged until the end of 2021 based on successful performance. The monthly salary is about 1.3 x average salary in the Czech Republic, the travel funds are available in the project.
The PhD student will study the multi-spectral long-term variability of AGN with the aim to decompose the emission from the nucleus and the host-galaxy of AGN. The PhD study will be taken at the Charles University in Prague (expected duration is 4 years). The PhD student will be awarded a stipend by the University and will be supported from the grant with an access to travel funding.
The interested candidates should send their CVs, the motivation letter and ensure sending of two recommendation letters to email@example.com by 28th of March 2019.
