PhD Student Scholarship -  Galaxy Evolution (observational) - Swinburne University of Technology

Applications are invited for a PhD Scholarship in extragalactic
observational astronomy at the Swinburne University of Technology 
to work with Dr. Barbara Catinella.

The student will work on multi-wavelength studies of nearby galaxies,
aimed at understanding the connection between gas and stellar components,
and their relation to the environment. This project will involve the 
analysis of available radio data from Arecibo and the Australia
Telescope Compact Array, with opportunities to carry out observations at
those and other facilities.

The appointee will join an active research group in Australia's most
rapidly growing astronomy department. Swinburne astronomers have access
to the AAT, Gemini, HST, Magellan, ATCA and Parkes telescopes, as well 
as institutional access to the W.M. Keck telescopes in Hawaii (15-20 nights 
per year). The Centre has GSTAR, the Australian GPU Supercomputer for
Theoretical Astrophysics, available in house as well as access to
state-of-the-art 3D visualization facilities. Melbourne was again in
2012 ranked the world's most liveable city by The Economist and is a
cosmopolitan place with a mild climate and many cultural and sporting events.

A successful candidate must hold a Masters degree or
equivalent by the time the position is begun. Previous research
experience and skills will be important criteria for the
selection. The PhD scholarship is not restricted by nationality.
Applicants should send a CV and a brief statement of past research 
to bcatinel at MPA-Garching.MPG.DE They should provide the names of two
references that can be contacted if necessary. The position must
start by November 2013.
The deadline for application is April 1st 2013.
