PhD position ERC AdG ISM-FLOW (Vienna) - 31 March 2023

The ERC Advanced Grant ISM-FLOW will attempt to make the first (3D) space motion map of the Local Interstellar Medium. The project will use a dedicated large observational campaign in the near-infrared at ESO (ESO Public Survey VISIONS), and ESA Gaia data, and will cover topics on the formation of giant molecular clouds, star formation and young stellar populations (1-100 Myr), the role of feedback, and the formation and evolution of spiral arms and large Galactic gas structures, such as the Radcliffe Wave. We are looking for motivated researchers with experience in astrometry, near-infrared imaging, and astrostatistics to join a collaborative team at the University of Vienna.
