Astronomical Institute of the Czech Academy of Sciences invites applications for post-doctoral positions in Astronomy and Astrophysics.

We are Public Research Institution and the largest professional astronomical organization in the Czech Republic, located at Ondrejov observatory and in Prague. Successful applicants will collaborate with researchers in our scientific departments (theory, observation, and data analysis are all welcome). Recently the Institute has been involved in space programs of ESA and ground-based projects within SO, including the European ALMA. Experience in one of the subjects studied at the Institute is valued but independent new projects will be also considered.

The appointment is initially for one year; an extension for another year is expected upon satisfactory scientific performance. A necessary condition is to satisfy legal requirements for the employment in Czech Republic. Salary will be based on the domestic level and it includes health insurance.

In a cover letter please indicate the working group that you intend to join. Applicants should contact a faculty member with whom they wish to work for further information and to define a joint research programme. This is considered to be an important part of the proposal.

Applications (containing Curriculum Vitae, List of Publications, and Summary of Research Plans) can be submitted by email to: sekretariat@asu.cas.cz (subject: "postdoc 2017", pdf file please).

Please provide the exact date of PhD defense. Applications can be submitted before finishing PhD, in which case a statement from the supervisor stating the planned date of the defense should be included. Successful candidates must hold PhD degree in the field and present a certificate of that by the date of employment. Preferences will be given to early-stage researchers.

Please arrange for two recommendation letters to be sent directly (the same electronic address as above).

To receive full consideration, this year application deadlines is: 5 March 2017 (spring call). Applications will be acknowledged by email and a confirmation will be requested from eligible applicants. Once the selection process is completed, successful applicants will be notified.
