To be considered for this role, you will demonstrate:

  • PhD in a field relevant to extragalactic astronomy
  • Experience in extragalactic astronomy (e.g. galaxy evolution) research, attested by a good publication record
  • Experience in the analysis of radio/millimetre data
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
