- The Astronomy & Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick is seeking an ambitious post-doctoral researcher to work within the project “Evolution of white dwarfs with 3D model atmospheres”. The position is funded by an ERC Starting Grant held by Dr. Pier-Emmanuel Tremblay, and the candidate will join an existing team of PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers.
- The Astronomy & Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick is seeking one ambitious post-doctoral researcher to work within the project “Evolution of white dwarfs with 3D model atmospheres”. The position is funded by an ERC Starting Grant held by Dr. Pier-Emmanuel Tremblay, and the candidate will join an existing team of PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers. The proposed project will be centred on the exploitation of the Gaia Data Release 2 colours and trigonometric parallaxes for white dwarfs. The post-doctoral researcher is expected to investigate questions ranging from the star formation history in the Milky Way, the composition of the interior of white dwarfs, and the nature of magnetic degenerates.
- We are seeking to appoint several post-doctoral research fellows in the area of astrophysical transients to support ambitious programmes of research addressing the nature of gravitational wave transients, gamma-ray bursts, supernovae and tidal disruption events. Post 1: Gravitational Wave Astrophysics with GOTO. As part of this role, funded by the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), you will be involved in the early science operations of the Gravitational Wave Optical Transient Observer facility (GOTO), exploiting its data to search for the first optical counterparts to gravitational wave sources and other optical transients, optimize the GOTO observing strategy and coordinate follow-up observations of GOTO transients. The post is available for 3 years in the first instance. Posts 2 & 3: These posts are in support of the ERC project “Transient Engine Driven Explosions, TEDE” and will investigate the nature of transients in which central engine activity drives their appearance. We anticipate that we will appoint one position in the area of gravitational wave transients, including observations with VISTA, HST and other facilities. The other position will be focused on observations of ultra-long GRBs, tidal disruption events and other engine-driven electromagnetically detected systems. The project duration is 5 years, these posts are available for 3 years in the first instance.
- Associate Professor/Lectureships (3 positions) in Exoplanets (Deadline: Nov 21, 2016) . he Department of Physics at the University of Warwick, UK, seeks to appoint up to three academic posts in the area of Exoplanets. Applicants will have a strong research track record and be ready to build their own research team with the support of colleagues at Warwick. Warwick has leading positions in the WASP and NGTS ground based transit experiments, membership of the ESA S mission CHEOPS board, and the Science Coordination of ESA’s PLATO mission (the PLATO Science office is being established at Warwick). It is expected that the successful candidates will take advantage of the opportunities presented by these experiments. One of these appointments could suit an applicant with a theoretical background. Suitable areas could include planetary atmospheres and orbital dynamics.
