The Onsala Space Observatory (OSO) division at Chalmers University is looking for a Postdoctoral Researcher to lead the development of an Advanced Data Product (ADP) pipeline for the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA). The position is for two years with the possibility of extension. It is expected that 50% of the time of this postdoc will be dedicated to the ADP pipeline effort, and 50% to pursue research in own scientific interests.

The full advertisement and application procedure for this position can be found here. The deadline for applications is January 19, 2024.

OSO is looking for an applicant with advanced software skills, experience with version control (e.g. git/github), ability to work in a distributed software team, and excellent communication skills. Previous experience with writing and/or implementing astronomical data reduction pipelines is desirable, and experience with radio spectral line data is advantageous but not essential. Applicants who feel the development of a spectral line ADP pipeline will enhance their own scientific research are strongly encouraged. We expect that the development of the ADP pipeline will have a significant and far reaching positive impact for ALMA users.  Further, the software skillset developed here will prepare the candidate to take advantage of future large surveys, and/or software development for current and future facilities such as ALMA, SKA, etc.
