IPAG (institute of Planetology and Astrophysics of Grenoble, France) is seeking applicants for a postdoctoral research associate position. The postdoctoral researcher will join our research group working on the MHDiscs (www.mhdiscs.fr) project led by Geoffroy Lesur to work on dynamical and radiative models of protoplanetary disc.
The postdoc is expected to work on protoplanetary discs modeling and planet formation, in tight connection with observers of the institute. The researcher will perform both theoretical and numerical studies of the planet-disc-wind interaction and predict observational signatures of this interaction. Access to a local dedicated cluster and national supercomputers (GENCI) is also provided, if needed. The postdoc will be given the opportunity to supervise PhD students and benefits from the support of computation engineers for specific numerical developments required by the project.
Expected Skills :
- Experience with high performance computing
- Experience with the modelisation of astrophysical flows
Candidates should have a PhD in astronomy, astrophysics, or a closely related field. The starting date is expected to be no later than autumn 2020; earlier dates up to April 1st 2020 are possible. Remuneration will depend on qualification and experience. The position is funded for 2(+1) by a European Research Council (ERC) consolidator grant and comes with full benefits together with a generous research and travel budget.
To receive full consideration, interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, publication list, and a brief statement of research interests by February 20, 2020 via the CNRS portal, and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent by the same date to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Later applications will be considered if all positions have not been filled.
