The Department of Physics at the University of Bath invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position to work on research related to the use of gamma ray bursts (GRBs) to study the cosmic chemical enrichment. 

This is a three year, fixed-term position.

About the role:

The successful applicant will work with Dr Patricia Schady to study the chemical composition of the multi-phase interstellar medium of distant, star forming galaxies. 

This research will make use of the growing archive of JWST observations of high-z galaxies, including the hosts of GRBs, with a focus on understanding the relation between absorption and emission line probes. 

The applicant will be encouraged to submit their own future JWST GO programmes, and to develop their own research interests on the topics of time-domain astrophysics and the chemical enrichment of galaxies.

The successful applicant will work alongside members of the Bath Astrophysics Group (http://www.bath.ac.uk/physics/research/astrophysics/), whose research interests include compact objects, cosmology, galaxy structure and kinematics, time-domain astrophysics, stellar populations, star formation, and ISM conditions. 

The Bath Astrophysics Group is a full consortium member of the multiplexed ESO/4MOST spectroscopic survey (https://www.4most.eu/cms/), and the Cherenkov Telescope Array (CTA; https://www.cta-observatory.org/), providing proprietary access to data from both these facilities for the duration of the PDRA. 

The University of Bath provides access to both onsite and cloud HPC facilities, as well as time on the GW4 network’s “Isambard” Tier 2 high-performance computing service.
