Chalmers University of Technology is offering Cosmic Origins Postdoctoral Fellowships. These postdoctoral fellowship positions are part of the Chalmers Initiative on Cosmic Origins (CICO) and will be hosted in the Galactic Astronomy unit in the Astronomy & Plasma Physics (AoP) division, within the Dept. of Space, Earth & Environment (SEE).

About the fellowships

Following fellowships are available:

  • Chalmers Cosmic Origins Fellowship: One or more positions for 3 years. Relevant themes include galaxy formation & evolution, ISM, astrochemistry, star cluster formation, high- & low-mass star formation, and planet formation & evolution, from both theoretical & observational perspectives.
  • Chalmers-MPIA Cosmic Origins Fellowship: One fellowship for 4 years, shared between Chalmers (2 years) and Max-Planck-Inst. for Astronomy in Heidelberg, Germany (2 years). Relevant themes include low- & high-mass star formation, physics of molecular clouds and the HI component, galaxy-scale studies of the ISM and star formation, and the connection between Galactic & extragalactic star formation studies. Involvement in space-based research is regarded as an advantage.
  • Chalmers-UVA Cosmic Origins Fellowship: One fellowship (funding pending) is a 4-year position, shared between Chalmers (2 years) and Dept. of Astronomy, Univ. of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA, USA (2 years). The relevant themes include galaxy formation & evolution, ISM, astrochemistry, star cluster formation, high- & low-mass star formation, and planet formation & evolution, from both theoretical & observational perspectives.
  • Chalmers-MPE Cosmic Origins Fellowship: One fellowship (funding pending) is part of the Chalmers-MPE fellowship that is a 4-year position, shared between Chalmers (2 years) and the Center for Astrochemical Studies at the Max-Planck-Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics (MPE) (Garching, Germany) (2 years). The relevant themes include the ISM, astrochemistry, star formation, and planet formation & evolution.
