Pristine Postdoc Position

déc. 20 2018

The astronomical observatory of Strasbourg (Observatoire astronomique de Strasbourg, ObAS) calls for applications to a postdoctoral position in the field of Galactic archaeology, in the context of the Pristine survey, an international collaboration that focuses on mapping the metal-poor Milky Way. Based on a narrow-band photometric survey currently being conducted at the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope, soon to be complemented by systematic follow-up with the WEAVE spectroscopic survey, Pristine focuses on the search for the first stars and mapping out the (sub)structures of the Milky Way halo.
The successful applicant is expected to work with N. Martin and R. Ibata, whose interests focus on the study of stellar structures in the Milky Way halo, combining the data from Pristine and the DR2 of the ESA/Gaia mission.
Experience in observational Galactic physics, Galactic dynamics, and/or stellar chemical analysis will be favored, but all applicants with experience in related areas will be considered. Candidates with independent research programs are encouraged to apply.
The position is for at least 2 years. The start date is flexible but is expected to be in the fall of 2019 at the latest. The offered remuneration (in the range 24,000-30,000€) includes the French health care for the applicant and their family, together with at least 5 weeks paid annual leave. Funds for travel and research will be available, as well as easy access to computing facilities.
Applicants are requested to submit a CV, a list of publications, a description (3 pages) of past/future research and accomplishments together with 3 letters of reference to nicolas.martin@astro.unistra.fr by January 7th, 2019.
