Position Link(s) Description
Fellowships2015 Apply now
Staff Scientist (2015) Apply now The Carnegie Institution for Science is expecting to make several staff astronomer appointments at its Observatories in Pasadena, California over the next few years. We are seeking outstanding candidates with observational, instrumental, theoretical or combined research interests in these fields. We are particularly interested in candidates with a record of distinguished scientific achievement in the following three areas: 1) Observational astronomers with a strong interest in pursuing major programs in stellar, galactic, or extragalactic astronomy with Carnegie's current and future facilities in Chile; 2) Instrumentalists with demonstrated experience designing and building optical/infrared instruments for large telescopes; and 3) Theorists with an interest in interacting closely with observational astronomers. These positions may be filled at any level and we encourage both junior and senior candidates to apply.
Postdoctoral Researcher in Near-Field Cosmology Apply now Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position in near-field cosmology at Carnegie Observatories in Pasadena, CA. The successful candidate will collaborate with Dr. Josh Simon on a range of projects involving imaging and spectroscopy of nearby dwarf galaxies. This work will focus on metal-poor stars, chemical evolution, the initial mass function, and dark matter. Experience in high resolution optical spectroscopy, ground- or space-based optical imaging, or astrometry, and/or previous work on dwarf galaxies is desirable.
