The Institute of Astrophysical Studies at Universidad Diego Portales (UDP) invites applications for postdoctoral research fellowships in observational astrophysics, including (but not limited to) one of the following research lines: Planet Formation, Planetary Science and the Solar System, Galactic Archeology, Supernovae and Transients, AGN and Galaxy Formation and Evolution; as well as theoretical studies on General Relativity and Gravitational waves.
Selected candidates will be sponsored by a UDP faculty member to apply for FONDECYT postdoctoral grants of 3 years or considered for other postdoctoral positions from grants led by members of our team (ERIS: Evolutionary Reconstruction of the InterStellar medium; YEMS: Young Exoplanets and their Moons; ) AGATHA: AGN and Galaxies through the Ages). The beginning of the FONDECYT fellowships is April 2024, but other dates are possible for other grants.
Eligibility for Fondecyt support is limited to researchers who received Ph.Ds after January 1st, 2020. While the FONDECYT application deadline has not been set yet, we anticipate it will be by the end of April 2023. Exceptions for women with children born in this period are possible according to FONDECYT guidelines.
While at UDP, successful candidates will qualify as members of the Chilean community and will be eligible for 10% privileged access to all telescopes in Chile, including ALMA, Gemini South, VLT, Magellan, CTIO, SOAR, La Silla, APEX, and ASTE, as well as to future facilities such as ELT, LSST, GMT, CCAT-prime and CTA. Faculty members at UDP are currently involved and leading numerous projects, including ALMA observations of protoplanetary disks, IR and submm lab measurements of meteorites and cosmic dust, exoplanet characterization and high-contrast imaging, the Next Generation Transit Survey (NGTS), SDSS-V, PLATO, and ASAS-SN, the BAT AGN Spectroscopic survey (www.bass-survey.com ), the NuSTAR and LSST-AGN collaboration, the WISE Hot DOGs collaboration, ALMA Spectroscopic Survey of the HUDF (ASPECS), ALMA CRISTAL, REBELS, COSMOS, the SPT SMG collaboration, CONCERTO, FYST/CCAT-p.
Applications for FONDECYT fellowship support by UDP should be submitted by e-mail in pdf format to email@example.com by Monday, April 10, 2023, to ensure full consideration. Applications will be considered until the positions are filled. They should include a brief cover letter (1-page; please mention who you are interested in working with at UDP), a research statement (max. 3 pages, including current and previous research and a research plan while working at UDP), and a CV (with publication list). In addition, applicants should provide the names and contact information of 3 references willing to provide letters of recommendation on request. We encourage applicants to contact faculty members in advance to discuss possible projects (see our websites).
The Institute of Astrophysical Studies at UDP maintains a diverse faculty of 50% women and over 60% international. We encourage applications from underrepresented groups.
