The University of Copenhagen’s Cosmic DAWN Center, Faculty of Science, is accepting applications for a PhD Fellow post commencing in September 2022, or as soon as feasible afterward.
The PhD applicant will focus on projects involving the enrichment of metals and gas-flows at the fringes of high-redshift galaxies to study galaxy development.
The PhD project will make use of quasar absorption line data from the VLT and a planned big spectroscopic survey and will include a number of people.
Observational data and numerical simulations are also analyzed.
A background in astrophysics, as well as expertise processing astrophysical data and knowledge of Python programming, would be advantageous.
The position is available for a 3-year period and your key tasks as a PhD student at SCIENCE are:
• To manage and carry through your research project
• Attend PhD courses
• Write scientific articles and your PhD thesis
• Teach and disseminate your research
• To stay at an external research institution for a few months, preferably outside of Denmark.
• Work for the department on various ad hoc scientific tasks as required
Worth of Award
- Starting pay is presently DKK 325.625 (about €43,400) plus yearly supplement (+ pension up to DKK 52,918). Salary supplement negotiations are available.
- Scholarships and employment arrangements for combined MSc and PhD programs: The student is eligible for so-called PhD grant sections up to the end of the MSc program (up to three years). The grant donor, not the Danish State Educational Grant and Loan Scheme Agency, funds the grant sections (as is the case for the ordinary study grant portions on the BSc and MSc programs). Because this kind of payment is regulated and specified in the Executive Order on the State Educational Grant and Loan Scheme in Denmark, and because the value of a PhD grant part is equal to the value of an ordinary Danish study grant portion, they are referred to as PhD grant portions. During their MSc and PhD studies, students are granted 48 PhD grant sections.
- DKK 292,320 (about €38,975) divided into 48 PhD award sections at DKK 6,090 each.
- 450 hours at a rate of DKK 216.14 (+ 12.5 percent holiday pay) during Part A if it lasts three years, equating to DKK 109,418 (about €14,580).
