The Institute for Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh is offering a post-doc position on asteroid/comet observations, funded as part of the EU NEOROCKS programme on near-Earth asteroids.

This is a one year position, which will hopefully be extended depending on future applications for funding to extend the work for other surveys (e.g. LSST, maybe EUCLID). The main goal will be to develop software that will be useful for surveys to search for faint comet-like activity.
