Applications are invited for a temporary post of a UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 or 2 within UCD School of Physics

UCD invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in the School of Physics to work primarily in the area of star and planet formation. This project is funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and will involve the use of optical/IR interferometric data (e.g. VLTI on the ESO Very Large Telescope (VLT)). The data pool obtained will also serve to develop a statistical imaging reconstruction method for geo-stationary satellite imaging.

The successful candidate will be part of an international group studying the physics of the innermost regions of protoplanetary disks, magnetospheric accretion, MHD winds, jets and outflows, high-mass young stellar objects, as well as planet formation using VLT, VLTI, JWST and SPIROU. S/he will be expected to play a full part in the academic life of the school. The successful candidate is expected to perform observational/computational research which complements the existing astrophysics research activities of the group, leading to the publication of high-quality peer-reviewed papers. The successful candidate is expected to supervise graduate students at both M.Sc. and Ph.D. level within the School.

PD1 Salary: €38,631 - €44,658 per annum
