About Exeter and the South West
College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences
The College wishes to recruit two Associate Research Fellows / Research Fellows to support the work of Dr Matthew Browning, Lecturer in Astrophysics. The posts are available from 01 February 2014 until 31 October 2018 and are funded by a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant.
The project will involve carrying out original research on the theory of stars and substellar objects, and exploring the observational consequences of various theoretical models. The post-holder will, in particular, be expected to use 3-D MHD simulations, in conjunction with analytical theory, to constrain the properties of such objects.
The successful applicant will be able to develop research objectives, projects and proposals; identify sources of research funding and contribute to the process of securing funds and make presentations at conferences and other events.
The successful applicant will be a nationally recognised authority in astrophysical/geophysical fluids, or in stellar astrophysics, and possess sufficient specialist knowledge in the discipline to develop research programmes and methodologies. The successful applicant will also be able to work collaboratively, supervise the work of others and act as team leader as required.
The College is working towards department Silver Athena SWAN awards as a commitment to providing equality of opportunity and advancing the representation of women in STEM/M subjects: science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine.
