The Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Informatics at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, Poland, invites applications for two 3-year Ph.D. candidates in studies of star formation in various environments. The aim of the PhD projects will be to characterize gas and dust properties of star-forming regions in the Outer Galaxy and create a ‘template' to interpret emission from star-forming regions in more distant, younger galaxies. The post involves working on the project funded by the Foundation for Polish Science within the First TEAM program awarded to Dr. Agata Karska in the Toruń Center for Astronomy. The project will be carried out in a close collaboration with the University of Copenhagen, the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and the Space Telescope Science Institute.  

Benefits

The Ph.D. stipend in the project is 3500 PLN (820 euro) / month for 3 years. Additional funding options and extension to the 4th year are possible as part of a regular Ph.D. program at Nicolaus Copernicus University.

Selection process

All interested candidates should send their curriculum vitae, list of publications, a cover letter outlining their research interests and motivation to join the project, and arrange for up to three letters of reference. Applications received before November 23, 2018 will be given full consideration, but will continue to be accepted until the positions are filled. Please send all applications and reference letters to: agata.karska@umk.pl. The appointments are expected to start on February 1, 2019, but a later date may be negotiated.
