Current job opportunities

We are currently recruiting postdoctoral fellows (two-year contract) at the Università di Bologna - Alma Mater Studiorum to work with myself and collaborators on the ERC-funded project "Asterochronometry - Galactic archeology with high temporal resolution".

Successful applicants will join the Department of Physics and Astronomy, Università di Bologna. The department, together with the adjacent Osservatorio di Astrofisica e di Scienze dello Spazio offers a lively and inspiring environment, with about 100 academic and research staff involved in astrophysics. The University attracts students worldwide and the postdocs will have opportunities to supervise master and PhD thesis.

Interested candidates with expertise in any of the following areas:

  • Galactic structure and dynamics,
  • stellar populations studies from large-scale surveys, spectroscopy, data-mining and statistical techniques,
  • modelling the structure and evolution of single and binary stars, asteroseismology,
  • photometric time-series analysis,
are encouraged to send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, and a complete list of publications to Andrea Miglio (andrea.miglio@unibo.it). Applications received by 28 February 2021 will receive full consideration. There is some flexibility in the starting date but we aim at filling the postdoctoral positions in the coming 2-4 months.
