Job Announcement Text: 

We are opening a 3-yr (2+1) CNRS/ANR postdoc position at the LAPTh, Annecy, France, starting in Fall 2020 (earlier/later start possible). 
We expect the successful candidate to work on theoretical predictions for compact object populations in the Galactic bulge, modelling the formation and evolution of different classes of high-energy emitters. Multi-wavelength and multi-messenger signatures of such populations will also be explored, from radio to gamma rays.
We look for a person with extensive know-how in compact object population synthesis codes, solid formation in the theory of compact object formation and evolution, as well as knowledge of formation and evolution of nuclear stellar clusters, globular clusters, and the Galactic bulge. We invite also candidates having a background in high-energy astrophysics of compact objects (radio, X, and gamma rays and their multi wavelength connection) to apply.  
She/he should be skilled in both analytical and numerical calculations, and have a track record at the level of international standards. Strong motivation to work at the frontier of different fields will be particularly appreciated (galactic or gravitational dynamics, particle astrophysics/cosmology, dark matter searches and phenomenology).
Applicants must hold a PhD at the start of the contract, and experienced candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.

Application procedure at the URL below ("Apply to job", available from the 17/10/2019) submitting: 1) CV with publication list, 2) motivation letter describing the candidate research programme (up to 3 pages). A maximum of 3 letters of recommendation should be sent addressed by the candidate’s referees to Francesca Calore at Email header for letters: "Letter for applicant's name, applicant's first name”.
