Postdoctoral position in FRB and Galaxy Astrophysics

Applicants are invited for a postdoctoral position at the Department of Physics at National Chung Hsing University (NCHU) to work in the group of Prof. Tetsuya Hashimoto.

Our current research is focused on fast radio bursts (FRBs), gamma-ray bursts, and galaxy formation and evolution. The successful candidate will contribute to research programs that aim to study transient and galaxy astrophysics using observational data. Candidates with relevant backgrounds and observational expertise are encouraged to apply, although all exceptional candidates in theoretical and numerical astrophysics will be considered.

Our research team has a granted time of the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST) to observe FRBs. The successful candidate can use such cutting-edge observational data to publish papers.

The Department of Physics at NCHU is committed to an inclusive, supportive working environment that values equality, diversity, and internationality.

The appointment will initially be for three years, with an extension contingent on research performance and grant situation. Applicants should send (1) a cover letter, (2) CV, (3) publication list, (4) research achievement (max. 2 pages), (5) research plan (max. 1 page), and (6) contact information for two references as a single PDF to tetsuya@phys.nchu.edu.tw by Sep. 15, 2021.

For further information about our research group, see http://www.phys.nthu.edu.tw/~tetsuya/. Informal inquiries can be made to Prof. Tetsuya Hashimoto.
