Post-doctoral research fellows in astrophysical transients

The Astronomy group at Warwick University is seeking to appoint several post-doctoral research fellows in the area of astrophysical transients to support ambitious programmes of research addressing the nature of gravitational wave transients, gamma-ray bursts, supernovae and tidal disruption events.

One post will involve the early science operations of GOTO. The post is available for 3 years in the first instance and funded through the STFC.

Two posts are available in support of the ERC project “Transient Engine Driven Explosions, TEDE”. We anticipate that we will appoint one position in the area of gravitational wave transients, while the other position will be focused on observations of ultra-long GRBs, tidal disruption events and other engine-driven electromagnetically detected systems. These posts are available for up to 5 years.

Deadline for all three positions is April 1, 2017.
