ApJL 455, L1

'The Current Star Formation Rate of the Local Universe' (1995, ApJ 455,L1) which is a key result of the UCM Survey has recently reached 300 citations according to NASA ADS service.

This quantity is not usual and this is why Jesús Gallego (the PhD student who made the work and deserves the merit) and Jaime Zamorano (his proud thesis advisor) are more than happy.

Consolider Postdoc

The UCM announces the future opening of one PostDoctoral position within the GTC Consolider-Ingenio 2010 project (First Science with the GTC: bringing Spanish Astronomy to the forefront of European Astronomy).

The Consolider-GTC Fellow will work in the Astrophysics Department of the UCM, and will participate in the activities of the UCM Instrument Software Group. As part of this work, she/he will be involved in the development of data reduction pipelines (DRPs) currently in progress, with special emphasis on the DRPs for optical and near-IR instruments for GTC. The Consolider-GTC Fellow will be allowed (and encouraged) to work on research areas closely related with the scientific exploitation of the future instrumentation. The appointment will be for a period of 3 years.

Please. Further information: Dr. Jesús Gallego (jgm at astrax.fis.ucm.es) or Dr. Nicolás Cardiel (ncl at astrax.fis.ucm.es).
