Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Galaxy Formation. This is a full time position to work for 36 months on projects related to hydro-dynamical simulations of galaxy formation. The post holder will work with Professors Richard Bower, Tom Theuns, Dr. Michele Fumagalli and other members of the ICC under the directorship of Professor Carlos Frenk. The candidate will be expected to display the initiative and creativity, together with the appropriate skills and knowledge, required to lead the research using cosmological hydro-dynamical simulations of galaxy formation to gain understanding of the role of interstellar chemistry in determining both the physical properties and key observational signatures of forming galaxies.
