Current Vacancies

Research Fellow (Astronomy & Astrophysics)

Fixed-term position for 2 years

The Astronomy & Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick is seeking one ambitious post-doctoral researcher to work within the project “Evolution of white dwarfs with 3D model atmospheres”. The position is funded by an ERC Starting Grant held by Dr. Pier-Emmanuel Tremblay, and the candidate will join an existing team of PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers. The proposed project will be centred on the exploitation of the Gaia Data Release 2 colours and trigonometric parallaxes for white dwarfs. The post-doctoral researcher is expected to investigate questions ranging from the star formation history in the Milky Way, the composition of the interior of white dwarfs, and the nature of magnetic degenerates.

Research Fellow (Condensed Matter Physics)

Fixed-term position for 3 years

A position is available to work on Ferrotoroidic Structures: polar flux-closure, vortices and skyrmions, in the group of Functional Electronic Materials of Physics Department at Warwick University. The work is built on the encouraging results obtained in PbTiO3-based multiferroic tunnel junctions displaying exotic topological phenomena. The successful candidate will join a program aimed towards to obtain and analyse the fundamental structural and functional properties of polar ferrotoroidic oxides.

Senior Research Fellow (Centre for Fusion, Space & Astrophysics)

Fixed-term position for 5 years

The Centre for Fusion, Space and Astrophysics (CFSA) within the Department of Physics at the University of Warwick seeks to make a senior research appointment in the area of Computational Plasma Physics. Applicants will have a strong research track record. This position provides an ideal career development opportunity during which to build an independent research reputation whilst interacting strongly with existing CFSA activity. This research activity is part of a strategic expansion in Warwick Physics that, if successful, may provide career opportunities beyond the 5-year fixed-term contract.
