At UNSW, we pride ourselves on being a workplace where the best people come to do their best work.
The School of Physics operates within UNSW's Faculty of Science and is one of the leading Physics departments in Australia. We have a strong teaching and research culture and our staff are conducting cutting edge research in exoplanetary science, astrophysics, condensed matter physics, theoretical physics, acoustics and biophysics.
The research group within the at the University of New South Wales invites applications for an Australian Research Council-funded postdoctoral Research Associate in in the science of exoplanets orbiting low-mass M-dwarf stars. The Research Associate will work with Prof. Chris Tinney on the analysis of FunnelWeb spectroscopy for a complete sample of ~80,000 southern hemisphere M-dwarfs, and then target samples of those M-dwarfs identified to transit by NASA's TESS mission, with the Veloce spectrograph to measure planet masses and explore system architectures. The successful candidate will have experience in exoplanetary science and the techniques of precision Doppler spectroscopy. Experience in M-dwarf spectroscopy and the analysis of transit search data is highly desirable.
