Research Fellow in Star Formation
- University of Leeds
- Location: Leeds, United Kingdom
- Job Number: 7086407 (Ref #: EPSPA1039)
- Posting Date: Oct 1, 2021
Are you an ambitious researcher looking for your next challenge? Do you have an established background in Star Formation? Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading research-intensive Universities?
You will work on an STFC-funded project with Prof Oudmaijer, Dr Lumsden and Prof Hoare to investigate high spatial and spectral resolution near- and mid-infrared studies of massive young stellar objects (MYSOs).
You will carry out a programme to study the sub-au to 100 au scale structures due to binarity, accretion and outflows. The observations include high resolution spectroscopy and IR interferometry of accretion disks, jets, and winds. The programme will exploit the large sample of MYSOs discovered by the Red MSX Source survey led by the Leeds group to study the massive star formation processes as a function of mass and evolutionary stage.
With a PhD (or will have submitted your thesis prior to taking up the appointment) in Astrophysics or a closely allied discipline, you will have experience in infrared/optical observational astronomy and a developing track record of peer reviewed publications in international journals.
