Functieomschrijving

The Kapteyn Astronomical Institute of the University of Groningen invites applications for 8 PhD positions:

• One position in the group of Dr Betsey Adams (ASTRON/Kapteyn) to study the neutral hydrogen content of dwarf galaxies using APERTIF-survey data.
• One position in the group of Prof. Erwin de Blok (ASTRON/Kapteyn) to study neutral-hydrogen data of nearby galaxies from the MeerKAT radio telescope.
• One position in the group of Prof. Inga Kamp to work with JWST mid-IR spectra from planet-forming disks using thermo-chemical models.
• Three positions in the group of Prof. Léon Koopmans to work on Reionization and Cosmic-Dawn data (LOFAR, AARTFAAC and NenuFAR), and forward data-models of space and lunar-based instruments (e.g. NCLE).
• One position in the group of Dr Else Starkenburg to study the early history of the Milky Way galaxy from the properties of its most metal-poor stars, using data from Gaia as well as photometric and spectroscopic surveys.
• One position in the group of Dr Lingyu Wang (SRON/Kapteyn) to study the role of mergers in galaxy evolution, taking advantage of new KiDS and upcoming Euclid data, and new merger detection techniques and simulations.
