Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in radio observations and an interest in Galactic plane science? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK’s leading research-intensive universities?

You will work on an STFC-funded project with Professor Mark Thompson in the Astrophysics Group to investigate phenomena discovered in the MeerKAT Galactic Plane Survey at 1.4 GHz.

You will carry out a research program into the new population of filaments found distributed throughout the Galactic plane in the MeerKAT GPS data. You will complete the characterisation of these filaments and conduct investigations into their possible nature and origins. This will involve proposing, reducing and analysing follow-up observations. You will also search for possible exciting sources, if any, that are associated with the filaments.

With a PhD (or have submitted your thesis before taking up the role) in Astrophysics or a related field, you will have experience in the reduction and analysis of observational data at radio wavelengths and a developing track record of peer-reviewed publications in international journals.
