The National Research Council (Canada) is advertising for a postdoctoral position 

The National Research Council (Canada) is advertising for a postdoctoral position based at the Dominion Astrophysical Observatory (part of NRC Herzberg) in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. The successful candidate will work on observational near-field cosmology with the new Canada-France Imaging Survey (details below), supervised by Alan McConnachie (CFIS co-PI).

Project title: The Canada-France-Imaging Survey (CFIS): Strategic science programs in the era of large datasets NRC portfolio: Herzberg Astronomy and Astrophysics

Location: Victoria, BC

CFIS is a major astronomical survey being undertaken with the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope that will obtain 10,000 square degrees of u-band imaging (point source depth 24.5 at a signal to noise ratio of 5) and 5,000 square degrees of r-band imaging (point source depth 24.9).

20% of the data is in hand. CFIS addresses fundamental questions relating to the properties of dark matter and dark energy, and their role in the growth of structure in the Universe. The successful applicant will use CFIS in combination with other datasets, including Gaia, to lead investigations into the formation history of the distant galaxy through three-dimensional mapping of its structure and metal distribution. The successful candidate will work in a premier research-computing environment with access to front-line database and software tools, and will develop infrastructure in the course of their research for use by the collaboration to efficiently mine this vast dataset. This position combines astronomy insight, software expertise and database management and is dedicated to delivering scientific results and tools for leverage by the collaboration.

More details on the position and how to apply can be found at the NRC Postdoc webpages:

More information on the Canada-France Imaging Survey (CFIS) is available on the CFIS website:


Over 30 astronomers in Canada are part of CFIS, eight of whom are located at NRC Herzberg. More information on the astronomers working in NRC Herzberg can be found here:



The Department of Physics & Astronomy at Western University

The Department of Physics & Astronomy at Western University in London, Canada has a postdoctoral position available, to work on stellar populations and star formation in nearby galaxies. The successful applicant will use multiwavelength observations and innovative computational and statistical techniques to put together the big picture of galaxy formation. She or he will carry out independent as well as directed research and be eligible to apply for telescope time with CFHT, Gemini, ALMA, and JCMT.

 Candidates must have a PhD in astrophysics or related fields and experience with astronomical observations. Expertise in studies of nearby galaxies and/or in data analysis using advanced statistical methods including machine learning would be advantageous.

 The initial appointment is for 1 year with the expectation of one or two additional years dependent upon performance and continued funding. The start date is flexible, but preferably not later than September 2017.

The position will remain open until filled; review of applications will begin on May 1, 2017.

 Applicants should send a cover letter, CV, brief statement of research interests, and contact information for at least 2 references in a single PDF to Prof. Pauline Barmby, via Ms Stephanie Attardi, sattard3 at uwo.ca. Questions about the position can be addressed to Prof. Barmby, pbarmby at uwo.ca; research group information is at http://nearby-galaxies.github.io

 The University of Western Ontario is committed to employment equity and welcomes applications from all qualified women and men, including visible minorities, Aboriginal persons and persons with disabilities.

IAG/USP Opportunities

Postdoctoral research opportunities at the Institute of Astronomy, Geophysics and Atmospheric Sciences of the University of São Paulo

Postdoctoral Fellowship on Precision Spectroscopy

Pre-applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship at the Astronomy Department of the University of Sao Paulo (USP) in Brazil, to join the group of Prof. Jorge Melendez (http://www.astro.iag.usp.br/~jorge/members.htm) to develop research related to high precision chemical abundances. USP is ranked as the best university in South America, and its Astronomy Department has 32 permanent staff, about 25 postdocs and about 60 graduate students.

The candidate will use stellar spectra of superb quality to obtain highly precise chemical abundances (0.01 dex). Some relevant topics are the planet - star connection, planet searches, star clusters, stellar ages, rotation, activity, stellar evolution, isotopic ratios, chemical evolution of the Galaxy, surveys of metal-poor stars and the cosmological lithium problem. The fellow is encouraged to pursue an independent research program for up to half of his/her time, and is welcome to apply for observing time at different facilities for which Brazil currently has access (ESO/Gemini/SOAR).

The successful applicant will be sponsored for an application to the Sao Paulo funding agency FAPESP. If approved, the position will be funded for two years with the possibility of extension for a third year contingent on performance. The starting date is negotiable (2016/12 - 2017/09). Monthly salary (tax free) is R$6819 (about US$2064). The postdoc will have its own research/travel budget of R$12274 per year. Airfare + R$6819 (to help with relocation) will be paid for fellows from abroad.

Candidates must have a PhD granted between 2011/7 and 2017/8 and should have published (or submitted) at least two papers. Previous experience on stellar abundances is required. Send a cover letter indicating your preferred starting date, curriculum vitae, summary of research achievements, and research plan by September 2, 2016. Applicants attending the workshop Precision Spectroscopy 2016 (http://www.astro.iag.usp.br/~jorge/ps/) can visit USP before or after the workshop. Send applications by e-mail to Dr. Jorge Melendez (jorge.melendez@iag.usp.br). Two letters of recommendation must be emailed directly by the writers to the above address.

A cosmologist permanent position is now open at CEA Service d'Astrophysique, France.
Deadline is May 20 for applying.
