  • Calling All Amateur and Professional Astronomers

The International Astronomical Union (IAU) is the major professional organization for astronomers throughout the world, with nearly 12,000 members in 90 countries. The IAU is working to foster stronger relations between the large community of amateur astronomers in many countries and professional astronomers.

The IAU Pro-Am Working Group sees many mutual benefits for professional and amateur astronomers alike through greater collaboration. To this end, we have initiated a survey to explore interest and potential barriers. Please consider taking a few minutes to complete the survey before January 31, 2022 at:

  • Postdoc position on star-exoplanet connections at Leiden Observatory

Leiden Observatory invites applications for a postdoctoral position to work in the ERC Consolidator Project ASTROFLOW (PI Aline Vidotto). The research area of the ASTROFLOW group is centred around star-exoplanet connections, ranging from stellar outflows (stellar winds, coronal mass ejections), exoplanetary outflows (atmospheric escape), and magnetism (stellar and planetary).

Applicants with experience in any of these research areas, including solar physics, are encouraged to apply. Experience in numerical and/or theoretical modelling is required. By the starting date, candidates must have a PhD in Astronomy, Physics or related scientific field. The starting date is negotiable and the position is available from early 2022.

Interested candidates should upload their applications to this web link
by 31 December 2021 to receive full consideration. The application should contain a cover letter, CV, publication list, and a statement of research experience and interests (max 2 pages excluding references). In your cover letter, please mention how your past experience and skills could complement the research carried out by the ASTROFLOW group. Candidates should arrange for three reference letters to be submitted at the same web link before the indicated deadline.

The postdoc position is for 2.5 years, consisting of an initial appointment of 1 year and an extension of 1.5 years contingent on satisfactory performance. Further extensions may be possible pending on funding.

Included Benefits: Salary ranges from 3,408 to 4,474 Euros gross per month based on a full time employment (38 hours/week, pay scale 10 in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities). Leiden University offers an attractive benefits package with additional holiday allowance and end-of-year bonus (8% and 8.3% of annual income, respectively), training and career development, paid vacation, sick leave, disability insurance, maternity and parental leave, and retirement benefits. Our individual choices model gives you some freedom to assemble your own set of terms and conditions. Candidates from outside the Netherlands may be eligible for a substantial tax break. Compulsory medical insurance is not included (100-150 euro/month/adult).

The candidate will benefit from a vibrant local and national astronomy community. Leiden Observatory is the largest astronomy department in the Netherlands, with about 35 faculty and adjunct faculty, 50 postdoctoral researchers, 30 support staff, 80 PhD students and 100 MSc students. Leiden is a charming university town with international flair.
