The Department of Physics at Durham University seeks to appoint a talented scientist to the role of Assistant Professor in Observational Astronomy. The successful candidate will be a member of the Centre for Extragalactic Astronomy (CEA) and will have research experience that complements and strengthens the existing areas of research within the CEA with the strong potential to exploit the next generation of astronomical observatories in the area of high-energy multi-wavelength astrophysics. They will be expected to develop their own research program and to publish world-class research with a focus on quality in high impact journals and will have the potential to engage with industrial partners. They will also be expected to collaborate in the development and delivery of high-quality research-led teaching in an inclusive and supportive learning environment which enables undergraduate and postgraduate students to achieve their potential. The position will start around October 2020.
Durham University hosts one of Europe's largest and most vibrant research groups working in the fields of observational and theoretical extragalactic astronomy, cosmology and instrumentation. Currently we have 25 permanent members of staff, 3 long-term research fellows, and around 100 postdocs, students, and support staff. Our observational research is undertaken in the CEA, while theoretical activities are focused in the Institute for Computational Cosmology (ICC), and our instrumentation work is carried out in the Centre for Advanced Instrumentation (CfAI). Our group benefits significantly from the deep-rooted synergies between the research programmes in the CEA, ICC, and CfAI. In November 2016 the CEA moved into a new building, the Ogden Centre for Fundamental Physics, along with the ICC and CfAI. Further information may be found at http://www.astro.dur.ac.uk/
Candidates should have a PhD in Physics or Astronomy and an established record of research at the highest international level. They should have also demonstrated potential for teaching and postgraduate student supervision and a clear commitment to developing an inclusive and welcoming working environment.
The Department is committed to advancing equality and we aim to ensure that our culture is inclusive, and that our systems support flexible and family-friendly working, As recognized by our Juno Champion and Athena SWAN Silver awards, we recognise and value the benefits of diversity throughout our staff and students.
