17 Postdoctoral Positions in Astronomy all at the same Institution!

Posted in The Universe and Stuff with tags , , on October 1, 2020 by telescoper

I know how difficult it is for budding astronomers to find postdoctoral positions, so when I saw that there are no fewer than 17 such positions have become available at the same time at the same institution – Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias (IAC) on Tenerife (Spain) – I couldn’t resist sharing. Postdoc positions are a bit like buses: you can wait ages for one,  and then seventeen come along all at the same time!

Below you will find links these positions, most of which have deadlines at the end of October (except one with has 15th October, and one at the end of November). Applicants must have their PhD by the time of the application deadline.

The Galaxias 2020 post is in Johan Knapen’s group, and can be to work on deep imaging from LSST.

You will see that 12 of the 17 positions are for 4-year ‘Advanced Fellow’ positions, several of which are in the area of formation and evolution of galaxies. Other areas are Solar physics, exoplanets, stellar and interstellar physics, Milky Way and Local Group, and cosmology & astroparticles.

Other galaxies-related positions are the HARMONI and the ‘Estallidos’ ones; EUROCC is for supercomputing support.
