Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate in observational galaxy evolution to work with Dr Kenneth Duncan at the Institute for Astronomy, which is part of the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh.
The primary research goal of this position is to advance our understanding of galaxy evolution, particularly the life cycle of gas in galaxies, through the combination of next-generation optical spectroscopy and radio HI surveys. The successful candidate will work together with Dr Duncan on a variety of projects with the forthcoming ORCHIDSS ESO Community Survey, depending on their research experience and interests. They will also have the opportunity to develop their own research projects with access to a wide range of multi-wavelength observations such as the MIGHTEE and LOFAR (2.0) extragalactic radio surveys, the WEAVE-LOFAR spectroscopic survey (deputy PI: Duncan), the JWST PRIMER/JELS imaging surveys and associated spectroscopic follow-up campaigns.
