Deadline: 2019 / 03 / 31
The Department of Astronomy at Yonsei University and the Yonsei University Observatory (Seoul, South Korea) invite applications for Lee Wonchul Postdoctoral Fellowship and Yonsei Rufus Postdoctoral Fellowship in all branches of astronomy. Two positions will be awarded for 2019 with the initial appointment of one year and a possible extension to another three years provided that our fund is renewed. Preference will be given to the applicants whose research interests reasonably overlap with those of our faculty. The research areas of the faculty include galaxy formation and evolution, stellar evolution and populations, supernova cosmology, radiative hydrodynamics, weak lensing and large scale structure, very long baseline interferometry observations, small bodies in the solar system, space optics, and satellite orbital dynamics and control.
The salary will be in the range of 30,000-50,000 USD/year (subject to change depending on exchange rates) and commensurate with experience and qualification. Research budget of 5,000 USD/year and all basic insurance benefits will be provided.
Successful candidates should have a Ph.D. or an equivalent degree in astronomy or related fields before starting the term. Starting date is expected to be September 2019 but somewhat flexible.
Applicants should submit a CV with a publication list, a brief (1-2 pages) research plan, and a list of three people who will write a reference letter upon request when the applicant is short-listed. The application due is 2019/03/31, but applications will be accepted until position is filled. Email applications and inquiries should be sent to Prof. Taysun Kimm (email@example.com)
