We are looking for a highly motivated and suitably qualified candidate to join the local Universe group at ICRAR. The appointee will work on multiwavelength observations of the Virgo cluster and other nearby galaxy clusters and groups (primarily obtained as part of the ALMA/VERTICO, CFHT/VESTIGE and ASKAP/WALLABY surveys), aimed at understanding the physical processes driving the quenching of star formation in high-density environments.
This position is funded by the Australian Research Council as part of a Discovery Project with the Laboratoire d’Astrophysique de Marseille and the Korea Astronomy and Space Science Institute as main international partners.
Under the supervision of the ARC Future Fellow, Associate Professor Luca Cortese, you will join one of the most active and rapidly growing research institutes in Australia. You will also have the opportunity to contribute to the scientific exploitation of other on-going multiwavelength surveys, such as SAMI, HECTOR and DEVILS.
To be considered for this role, you will demonstrate:
PhD in a field relevant to extragalactic astronomy
Experience in extragalactic astronomy (e.g. galaxy evolution) research, attested by a good publication record
Experience in the analysis of radio/millimetre data
Excellent written and verbal communication skills
Demonstrated ability to work independently, show initiative, problem solve and work productively as part of a team
Full details of the position’s responsibilities and the selection criteria are outlined in the position description.
