Dear Colleagues,

The University of Warwick is seeking applications from motivated and driven individuals to work with Dr Cegla as part of a 3-year postdoc (possibility for extension). The successful candidate will characterise stellar surface variability and measure the alignment between exoplanetary orbits and their host stars rotational spin-axis. The candidate will utilise the ‘reloaded RM’ approach to determine such alignments and probe planet migration and evolution. In doing so, they will also spatially resolve distant stars, investigate stellar surface variability, determine stellar differential rotation across main sequence stars, and validate state-of-the-art stellar simulations.

The Astrophysics group at Warwick is one of the UK's leading exoplanet research groups (with close ties to their Plasma Physics group), and provides an excellent environment for a motivated Research Fellow to further their scientific career. Some of the post holders time may be available for their own independent research, preferably in the area of exoplanets or stellar/solar physics within the Physics Department at Warwick.

The University of Warwick strongly values equity, diversity and inclusion, and the Physics Department will provide a healthy working environment, dedicated to outstanding scientific guidance, mentorship and personal development. We are committed to individuals with care giving duties and can offer flexible working hours. Applications for a part-time position will be considered.

Applications should include: a completed application form (including contact details for three references), a brief statement of research interests, CV including publications, a statement on commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion. Deadline for applications is 23:59 GMT, 3 July 2020. The anticipated start date is September/October 2020, but this is flexible.

Best regards.
