One postdoctoral position is available in the group of Yuri Aikawa at Department of Astronomy, University of Tokyo in Japan. The group focuses on physical and chemical processes in the star/planet formation. A successful candidate is expected to carry out numerical simulations of physical and chemical processes in interstellar clouds, star-forming cores, and protoplanetary disks in collaboration with the grant group described in the attached file. The candidates must have fundamental knowledge on star/planet formation and/or astrochemistry. The candidates with research experience in chemical reaction network models, Monte-Carlo simulations of grain-surface reactions, radiation hydrodynamics, radiation transfer calculations for synthetic observations are particularly welcome. The candidate should have finished his/her doctoral thesis before taking up the position. Japanese language skill is not required. The position is initially for one year with the annual extension depending on performance, up until March 31, 2025. The position is open from January 2022, but the exact starting date is flexible.
