We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to work with Paolo
Padovani, European Southern Observatory (ESO), Garching bei München,
Germany, and Elisa Resconi, Technische Universität München on the
identification of the astrophysical sources of IceCube neutrinos. This
will involve: 1. tests of the scenario of blazars as possible neutrino
sources and participation to the Spectra of IceCube Neutrino (SIN)
candidate source project; 2. rapid follow-up of neutrino IceCube
events; 3. assessment of other classes of neutrino emitters;
4. investigation of a possible link between gamma-ray, neutrino, and
cosmic ray sources. The ideal candidate has a PhD in Astronomy or
Astroparticle Physics with high-energy and multi-messenger expertise.
Experience in data science and statistics would be a significant asset.
The position is part of the Collaborative Research Centre (CRC: 1258)
"Neutrinos and Dark Matter in Astro- and Particle Physics" (see link
The position is available immediately for two years, with a possible
renewal based on performance. At ESO, the researcher will enjoy an
invaluable training opportunity and a vibrant environment at one of
the world's foremost observatories. Furthermore, the CRC will allow
the candidate to interact with world experts on neutrinos, dark
matter, and astro- and particle physics. The researcher is expected to
actively participate in joint activities of the CRC.
Candidates should send a curriculum vitae, bibliography, and short
(max 2 pages) statement of research interests as a single PDF under a
subject heading “Postdoc Position — YOUR NAME” to [email protected] and
arrange for three letters of reference to be sent electronically to
the same address by Jan. 31, 2022.
