DIAS Post-Doctoral Fellowship

The Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) is offering a 5-year postdoctoral fellowship to work in star and/or planet formation. DIAS has access to data from a variety of facilities including JWST, GRAVITY on the ESO VLTI, along with SPIRou. In addition, the fellow will have the opportunity to participate in shaping the science of ESA’s Ariel mission and GRAVITY+. The person recruited will work primarily in the field of observations of young stars or planets and will join a large group not only active in star and planet formation, but also Solar System studies and High Energy Astrophysics.

This fellowship is available for 5 years beginning July 2024 (the precise starting date is negotiable).    Applicants should have a PhD in Physics, Astronomy, or a closely related field. DIAS will provide funds for publications, travel, etc., and fellows may be expected to assist in the mentoring of postgraduate students for the duration of their contract.

Salary details can be accessed here. The appointee will be subject to the general Irish public sector regulations as regards starting salary, annual leave, sick leave, pension entitlements etc. 

Interested candidates should upload a CV, publication list and a brief statement of research interests, as one single pdf document, on the DIAS online recruitment system here by Tuesday, April 30th 2024.    The names of three referees should also be provided and candidates should arrange with referees to upload the letters of reference on the same system before the above closing date.        

Detailed enquiries regarding scientific aspects of the project can be made to Prof Tom Ray (tr@cp.dias.ie).
