Job opportunities

In case you were interested in doing some research in Astrophysics, I have quite a few of projects and ideas that are waiting for a capable person to come to life. For instance:

  • Self-consistent Photo-ionization and Chemical Evolution (SPiCE) models.
  • Analytical models of galaxy formation and evolution.
  • Molecular hydrogen in cosmological numerical simulations.
  • A 3D model of the Milky Way.
  • On the gravitational (large, but finite N)-body problem
  • The Galactic lepton puzzle.

If none of these was not your cup of tea, you could also have a look to my research page; my interests are broad, and I am always open to suggestions.

Unfortunately, I cannot provide any funding to work with me at the present time. Check the job offers of the Department and, for a wider scope, the Sociedad Española de Astronomía or the AAS Job Register. If you are a student with relatively good marks, there are several options to get funding by yourself and work with whoever you want:

  • Becas de Colaboración UAM
  • Ayudas para Inicio de Estudios en Programas de Posgrado UAM
  • Becas FPU
  • If you are not Spanish, there may be a specifc exchange program with your coutry (e.g. MAEC-AECID, DAAD, CONACYT)
Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further information, and, most importantly,

Good luck, and have fun!

Other collaborators

Here at the UAM, I collaborate closely with several members of the Extragalactic Astrophysics group, led by Ángeles Díaz. Contact with scientists from other institutions usually takes place in the context of the research projects where we participate (e.g. the "Estallidos" and SELGIFS collaborations). In addition, I have also had the pleasure of contributing to the Halo Finder Comparison Project, led by Alexander Knebe, and I have recently become a full member of the CALIFA survey.
