In the course of the training program in mm-wave interferometry starting at IRAM, we invite applications for a new post-doctoral position at IRAM Grenoble starting in fall 2000. The successful candidate is expected to spend two years at IRAM (with a possible extension of one year) and return to a host institution (either his/her previous or a new one).
Therefore clear preference will be given to candidates proposing to work with faculty members at host institutions jointly with IRAM astronomers, with established programs in astrophysical domains which benefit in a significant way from mm interferometry. Experience in this or other observing techniques is welcome but will not be a strong selection criterion.
The successful candidate will have to spend 50% of his/her time for service tasks and instrumentation related to the IRAM interferometer and to the future interferometer ALMA.
Applicants should have a Ph.D in astronomy or a related discipline obtained preferentially in 2000. They should submit a curriculum vitae, a publication list, and a short statement (max. 4 pages) about the science they would like to conduct during their stay at IRAM with the Plateau de Bure interferometer. This should be accompanied by a letter of strong support from a faculty member of the host institute. In addition, the names of two other scientists should be included who may be contacted by IRAM. The applications should be sent to Prof. Michael Grewing at IRAM before June 30.
