RESOLVE DR2 HI Masses and Environment Metrics

Posted October 21, 2016

HI masses or strong upper limits for nearly all RESOLVE galaxies have been released in Stark et al. (2016), along with environment metrics used to investigate the environment dependence of galaxy cold gas content. Click here and here for data tables and here for paper.

ECO Data Release 1

Posted July 31, 2015

Basic properties of all ECO galaxies including stellar masses, colors, morphologies, and environmental properties have been released in Moffett et al. (2015). These measurements are combined with archival UV and HI data to analyze the environmental dependence of galaxy disk growth, with emphasis on disk regrowth in E/S0 galaxies.

RESOLVE DR1 photometry

Posted July 30, 2015

High-quality UV/optical/near-IR photometry and stellar mass estimates for all galaxies have been released in Eckert et al. (2015), where they are combined with our nearly complete HI census to provide a volume-limited calibration of the photometric gas fractions technique.

First Team Meeting

Posted September 3rd, 2012

We now have enough data to get serious about science! Our first all-hands meeting will take place in Chapel Hill from January 17-21, 2013. If you'd like to get involved with RESOLVE, this is the time. Please send Sheila Kannappan an email describing what you'd like to do, and if your plans mesh with ours, we'll be glad to have you join us. More soon!

Postdoctoral Position Available

Posted October 26th, 2011

Applications are invited for a three-year postdoctoral position in extragalactic astronomy at the University of North Carolina. The successful candidate will work in collaboration with Prof. Sheila Kannappan and her group on multi-wavelength studies of galaxy evolution, focusing on projects of mutual interest in any of several broad areas including the structure, dynamics, gas content, star formation, stellar populations, and environments of galaxies.

This position is funded through the RESOLVE Survey, a volume-limited census of stellar, gas, and dynamical mass as well as star formation and merging for all galaxies and larger structures within 53,000 cubic Mpc of the nearby universe, from dwarfs with baryonic mass ~109 M up to groups, filaments, and voids on tens of Mpc scales. Experience with data reduction, theoretical analysis, programming, and/or instrumentation in any wavelength regime will be helpful, along with an aptitude for learning new research techniques. Data sources may include SOAR, SALT, GALEX, Herschel, Spitzer, HST, Arecibo, the EVLA, the GBT, ALMA, IRAM, and archival surveys (SDSS, UKIDSS, AKARI).

The successful candidate will gain access to the UNC share of the SOAR, SALT, and PROMPT telescopes and to state-of-the-art computing facilities including the Topsail cluster. He or she will enjoy substantial freedom to define personal research directions. Opportunities to contribute to SOAR instrumentation may be possible for an applicant with relevant experience and interests.

The position provides health benefits, a travel allowance, and a generous salary. All requirements for the PhD must be completed prior to the negotiated start date, ideally spring-fall 2012.

Applicants should arrange submission of at least three recommendation letters plus cover letter, CV, publication list, and brief statement of research background and interests by December 16, 2011. Late applications may be considered until the position is filled. All materials including letters should be sent to resolvepostdoc@unc.edu with the applicant's name in the email subject line (pdf or plain text only please). UNC is an equal opportunity employer and strongly encourages applications from women and minorities.
