Postdoctoral Near-field VLBI Support Scientist

to be located at JIVE, Dwingeloo, The Netherlands

JIVE, the Joint Institute for VLBI ERIC, is the central organisation of the European VLBI Network (EVN). The EVN is an interferometric array of radio telescopes spread throughout Europe, extending into Asia, Africa, and Puerto Rico, and often observes in conjunction with the e-MERLIN interferometer in the UK, the East Asia VLBI Network (EAVN), the Long Baseline Network (LBA) in the Southern hemisphere, and the VLBA and other telescopes in the USA. JIVE implements the core data processing and user services that turn the network of distributed telescopes into a single scientific facility to study the radio sky at the highest possible resolution. The Institute is located in Dwingeloo, the Netherlands, and is hosted by ASTRON - the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy.

JIVE is a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) whose primary mission is to operate the EVN VLBI correlator, to provide support to the EVN users and member telescopes, and conduct advanced research in radio astronomy and synergistic science areas.

In particular, JIVE is actively developing new correlator capabilities, including real-time e-VLBI, space science applications and mm-VLBI developments (e.g. EHT consortium). The Institute is involved in collaboration with several Dutch universities, and interactions with other radio-astronomy institutes throughout Europe. For further information regarding JIVE and the EVN, refer to www.jive.eu and www.evlbi.org. This position opening also appears in the AAS Job Register (jobregister.aas.org/ad/2a9b3a91) and on the JIVE web site (www.jive.eu/vacancies-jive).

We invite applications for the position of JIVE Near-Field VLBI Support Scientist to become available from as early as March 2021. Since 2003 JIVE, together with its ERIC members and associated organisations, members of the EVN and other institutes develops and applies the technique of near-field VLBI (NF VLBI). This technique enables achieving high-precision estimates of state-vector of point-like sources of radio emission (spacecraft) within the Solar System by means of measuring the radial velocity and lateral celestial position of the target. The technique has been successfully demonstrated for a number of planetary and space science missions, such as the ESA's Huygens
Titan Probe, SMART-1, Venus Express, Mars Express, the Russia-led RadioAstron mission and others. JIVE, as the Principal Investigator's organisation, together with the Delft University of Technology (the Netherlands) and other partners is leading the Planetary Radio Interferometry and Doppler Experiment (PRIDE) of the ESA JUICE (Jupiter and Icy Moons Explorer) mission scheduled to launch in the middle of 2022 (https://sci.esa.int/web/juice/home).
