Positions at The Instituto Astrofísica Andalucía (IAA) (CSIC)

Project scientist position:

As coordinator of the Spanish participation in the SKA I'm seeking for a motivated post-doctoral radio astronomer to fill a 3-yr Project Scientist position (with the possibility of additional extensions based on performance) at the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía (IAA-CSIC, Granada). 

This is a job for radio-astronomers both active in their own research and passionate about different areas of Astrophysics in which the SKA will have an impact. The successful candidate will be responsible for enthusiastically engaging with the Spanish community, identifying and fostering synergies both at national and international level, aiming to maximise the scientific return of the SKA. Up to half of the time will be available for their own research. 

It is not mandatory, but considered an asset that candidates work in lines of research related to those of my team: study of galaxy evolution and environmental effects, with a special emphasis on the atomic gas (HI) component with SKA precursors and pathfinders.
