Job Description

The ERC project, MOPPEX, centres on the use of molecules to shed light on the physical and chemical structure of nearby  galaxies, in order to characterize  the energetic processes, as well as the dense gas structure, that determine their appearance.

Person Specification

The successful applicant will be expected to reduce and analyse submillimeter data of nearby galaxies, as well as applying in-house chemical and radiative transfer models. Experience in the reduction and analysis of submillimeter interferometric data is a pre-requisite. Candidates must have a Ph.D. in astronomy or physics.
