Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for two post-doctoral positions in observational stellar astrophysics with high angular resolution techniques at the Universidad Andres Bello in Santiago, Chile.

The successful applicants will work with Prof. Keiichi Ohnaka on the analysis and interpretation of high angular resolution optical/infrared observations of stars in late evolutionary stages, for example, imaging of the surface, atmosphere, and circumstellar environment as well as modeling of the data to better understand key processes such as dust formation and stellar winds. Experience in high angular resolution observations such as adaptive optics and optical/infrared interferometry and/or research on evolved stars can be an asset but not mandatory. The successful applicants will have access to the 10% of the telescope time on international facilities in Chile, such as VLT, VLT-Interferometer, ALMA, Gemini-South, CTIO, and Magellan.

The Institute of Astrophysics at the Universidad Andres Bello currently has 12 faculty members working on stellar astrophysics, extragalactic astrophysics, and cosmology, four post-docs, and 22 PhD students as well as several dozens of undergraduate students.

The successful applicants should have, or expect to soon obtain, a PhD in astronomy or astrophysics. The starting date can be flexible. The appointment will be for two years for both positions.

Interested applicants should submit a CV, publication list, description of research interests and arrange three letters of reference directly sent to Prof. Keiichi Ohnaka ([email protected]). Applications submitted by September 30, 2022 will receive full consideration.
