A guy I like broke up with his girlfriend, and I found out he likes me, too. But even though he told me he'd be happy for her if she found someone new, I'm sure he must still have residual feelings for her. One of my close friends, who's also friends with him, keeps telling me to go for it, but I don't want to end up just being the rebound.
Therefore, how long should I give him space for? What signs should I look for that show he may be ready to move on?

I think you have to presume that he does indeed need some time to get past his ex. He may get into a relationship too soon which is a rebound. I'd give him three weeks with no contact and then engage.
