Candidates will be able to access UF's world-class research facilities and telescopes (, including the 10.4-m Gran Telescopio Canarias in Spain, the Dharma survey telescope in Arizona, and the MINERVA Australis exoplanet RV array. Faculty also carry out research using the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument, and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey V. UF is home to HiPerGator, one of the most powerful high-performance computers at a US public university ( We welcome applicants who can benefit from access to these resources while developing high-impact research programs using other major national and international observational astronomical facilities and publicly available large datasets.
