Do you hold a PhD in Astrophysics or a closely related discipline? Do you have expertise in planet formation, hydrodynamical modelling, or protoplanetary disc physics? Do you want to further your career in one of the UKs leading research-intensive Universities?
The University of Leeds invites applications for a 2-year postdoctoral position in planet formation, working with Dr Richard Booth on a Royal Society funded project into planet formation. You will conduct original research into the formation or evolution of planets. The focus will be to understand how planet formation processes and chemistry interact, how this affects the composition of planets, and the discs that they form in.
Holding a PhD (or have submitted your thesis prior to taking up the role) in astrophysics or a related disciple, you will have experience in the simulation of protoplanetary discs or planet formation, and a developing track record of peer-reviewed publications in international journals.
