Applications are invited for a 2-year postdoctoral position in stellar physics and asteroseismology at IRAP / OMP, Toulouse in France. The postdoctoral researcher will work mainly with Sébastien Deheuvels and Jérôme Ballot (IRAP / OMP) within the ANR project BEAMING.
The BEAMING project aims at understanding the transport of angular momentum in subgiants and red giant stars. The successful postdoctoral candidate will analyze and exploit the Kepler and TESS seismic data to provide constraints on the shape of the internal rotation profiles and their variations along the evolution. Interactions are expected with the second part of this project led by Laurène Jouve (IRAP / OMP), who will investigate the role of magnetic fields in the transport of angular momentum.
We are seeking highly motivated young researchers with a PhD in astrophysics. An expertise in asteroseismology or related research is expected. Prior experience in stellar evolution modeling will be appreciated. The starting date can be anytime between June, 1st 2020 and late fall 2020. Salary will depend on qualification and experience. The position comes with full benefits together with a generous travel budget.
Located in Toulouse, in south-west France, IRAP / OMP provides a thrilling and productive research environment, with more than 250 persons (mostly scientists, engineers, postdocs, students) working in most domains of astrophysics, from cosmology to planetology and astrochemistry, and from theoretical research to instrumentation.
Applicants should send their complete CV with full publication list, along with a brief statement of research project to Sebastien.Deheuvels@irap.omp.eu by March 29th, 2020. Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to the above address by the same deadline.
