Applicants should submit a cover letter, CV, list of publications and statement of research interests (max 2 pages) and should arrange for 3 reference letters to be sent.

The iREx consists of a growing team of over 40 people (professors, postdocs, research assistants and students) mostly from UdeM and McGill University all working on various research programs focused on the study of exoplanets and related fields of stellar astrophysics. Members of iREx are actively involved in large international projects related to the detection and characterisation of exoplanets, notably the future JWST, the Gemini Planet Imager, SPIRou and NIRPS. iREx researchers will have access to guaranteed observing time with JWST, SPIRou and NIRPS. More information on iREx research programs can be found here: http://www.exoplanetes.umontreal.ca/research/?lang=en.

The successful applicant is expected to start between May and September 2019. The position is for 2 years, renewable for a 3rd year subject to performance and availability of funds.
