Our group carries out frontline research on observational astrophyics. In particular, we study black holes across the electromagnetic spectrum, the formation and growth. For this, we use frontline photometric and astrometric surveys to find new and hidden black holes, and study how they are growing. We also focus on rapid time-domain studies at multiple wavelengths, including sub-second transients and variables in the night sky.
Come join our team as a postdoc working on the frontline of searching for and characterising black hole binaries in the Milky Way. We have a 2+1 year postdoc position open (advert will go live in early 2021 Jan, deadline Feb 12). If you have an interest in black hole formation mechanisms and familiarity with Gaia/Chandra/other large surveys, we would love to hear from you.
