The Faculty of Physics, Astronomy and Informatics at the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, Poland, invites applications for four assistant professor positions in the general field of astrochemistry, astrophysics, quantum chemistry, or theoretical spectroscopy.

The Centre was established in January 1, 2020 for the period of 6 years due to the prestigious label of the “research university” awarded to the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education. The choice of the five Centres of Excellence was based on the current performance of researchers at NCU according to a sound and in-depth assessment of their research activity.

Please send all applications and reference letters to Dr. Justyna Cembrzynska: justyna@umk.pl  (topic: 4/Research Adjunct/CEAA ).

The appointments are expected to start on October 1, 2020, but a later date may be negotiated. The gross salary is min. 9000 PLN (2000 euro) / month and a subject for negotiations. A starting package including travel money will be offered.
