The position requires the applicant to independently conduct research projects after the inauguration, to guide graduate students, doctoral students, and to assist in the development of astrophysics courses for students of the School of Physics and Astronomy. We welcome applicants of all nationalities. The school provides internationally competitive personal treatment and research start-up funding.

A number of public astronomical data are also widely used by members of the Center, including: PanSTARRs, COSMOS, UKIDSS, Planck, and so on.
