PhD positions in the CHAMELEON ITN: Virtual Laboratories for Exoplanets and Planet-Forming Disks  

We invite excellent applicants to join the CHAMELEON Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) for 15 PhD positions in exoplanet and planet-forming disk modelling and data analysis. The individual projects can be found here:   http://chameleon.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk/recruitment/.

Virtual laboratories play an essential role in simulating yet unexplored physico-chemical environments of the diverse exoplanet population known so far, and they are key find out whether our Solar System is unique and how life emerged. In Virtual Laboratories, we combine existing, well-tested theoretical modelling tools of varying complexity to explore their combined strength, limits, and the need for new techniques. We combine expertise from the Universities of St Andrews, Antwerp, Copenhagen, Groningen, Leuven and Edinburgh, the Netherlands Institute for Space Research and the Max-Planck Institute in Heidelberg to cover all physical, chemical, radiative and numerical aspects for modelling  planetary atmospheres and planet-forming disks, including observation and interpretation.

We seek excellent students with a strong background in physical sciences, chemistry, mathematics and/or astrophysics. Successful candidates must hold a Masters degree or equivalent. Previous  research experience on aspects of exoplanet atmospheres, planet-forming disks, analysis of astronomical spectra, and/or astro-chemistry and astro-biology, scientific coding and a track record of team work/mobility will be important criteria for the selection.

Starting of the positions:  September 2020

Please consult the CHAMELEON webpage for the complete list of required application documents.
