The Department of Astronomy at the University of Cape Town (UCT) and the South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) have an opening for a joint position in observational astronomy at Lecturer or Senior Lecturer level. Applications are sought from scientists whose research interests lie in stellar astrophysics or extragalactic astronomy, and who could make intensive use of the telescopes at SAAO, including SALT and MeerLICHT.
Within the context of the NRF Funded SARChI project: “Gravitational Wave Counterparts and Fast Transients” the following positions are available. All positions will be based at the University of Cape Town (UCT), in close collaboration with SAAO, IDIA/Ilifu and SARAO. Candidates will be requested to spend extended periods of time abroad, specifically in the Netherlands and Chile.
