The Cosmic Dawn Center (DAWN) invites applications for the DAWN Post-doctoral Fellowships. The fellowships are intended for outstanding early career scientists whose research falls within DAWN’s research themes: high-redshift galaxy evolution, epoch of re-ionization, first stars and galaxies, dust and ISM in the early universe and dark matter. DAWN Fellows are expected to pursue their own independent, cutting edge research programs, either in theory or observations.
DAWN is a new Center of Excellence funded by the Danish National Research Foundation (DNRF), and is located at the Niels Bohr Institute (NBI), University of Copenhagen and at the Space division of the Danish Technical University (DTU-Space). In addition, the center has a number of associate members at major research institutes across Europe, North America, and Australia. DAWN brings together experts in all aspects of early Universe galaxy evolution and is deeply involved in major existing and upcoming surveys with e.g. HST, ALMA, Euclid and JWST, as well as cosmological and zoom in simulations.
For more information on the Center's activities and researchers, please see https://dawn.nbi.ku.dk/ .
Dawn Fellowships are for up to three years (2+1). The employment is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2021 or upon agreement with the chosen candidate. Applicants may also be considered for other post-doctoral positions at the Cosmic DAWN Center.
Applications must consist of a CV, Diplomas (Master and PhD degree or equivalent), a list of publications, and a brief research statement that describes research interests, future plans and relevant technical experience. The research statement should not exceed 3 pages (text, figures and references included) with a font size no smaller than 11pt Times New Roman (or equivalent).
The deadline for applications is 4 January 2021, 23:59 GMT +1. Applications received within the deadline will receive full consideration. Short-listed candidates will be contacted for interview in late January.
