in seminars, colloquia and journal clubs.
Candidates should have experience of contributing to publications and/or
presentations and be able to contribute new ideas for research projects and
research income generation.
The successful candidate will have or be close to obtaining a PhD in a
relevant area of astronomy, physics or engineering.
The successful candidate will have a proven record of research in this area
and a demonstrated capacity for independent work, and be capable of initiating
research in a lively group.
Candidates are expected to demonstrate the capablity to initiate research in a
lively group and to have expertise in theory and/or data analysis in
