Postdoctoral researcher in supernovae and related transients
Applications are invited for a 3-year postdoctoral researcher funded by the Academy of Finland to work with Dr. Rubina Kotak in the area of supernovae and related transients at the University of Turku (UTU).
The UTU transients team is a vibrant and productive research group within the Dept. of Physics & Astronomy, and currently comprises 17 members with diverse expertise. UTU members lead key science projects in several large international consortia with access to guaranteed observing time e.g., the Son of X-Shooter instrument and the NOT Transient Explorer. Access to other facilities is guaranteed via national or institutional support e.g., European Southern Observatory, the Nordic Optical Telescope (co-owned by UTU), and the Gravitational-wave Optical Transient Observer (GOTO).
The successful applicant will be expected to support and participate in ongoing projects and lead new ones. Depending on the skills and interests of the applicant, this may include discovery and survey operations, acquisition and analysis of large multi-wavelength datasets, and/or modelling and interpretation of observations.
