Job Announcement Text: 


The University of Vienna announces availability of a 2-year postdoctoral position in the field of exoplanetary and stellar research. The candidate will contribute research to the international EU H2020 project "Exoplanet Atmosphere New Emission Transmission Spectra Analysis (ExoplANETS_A)" related tp habitable planets and the role of host star output. The major tasks will include the assembly and computation of complete stellar spectra from the optical to the  X-rays, based on models (partly developed in the group) and observations (being collected by the project); and second, application of already developed stellar wind models to specific host stars. The candidate will closely work with the project's exoplanetary atmospheres modeling group with the goal of understanding atmospheric chemical development,  losses and also the emergence of habitable environments.

The position is part of the Star and Planet Formation group of Prof. Manuel Guedel that hosts a large national research program on planet formation, exoplanetary atmospheres and exoplanetary habitability (http://path.univie.ac.at) offering many opportunities for participation and collaboration. The position should be filled at the earliest possible date, and preferably between 1 November 2018 and 1 March 2019. Applications include a motivation letter addressed to Prof. Manuel Guedel, a CV, a publication list, a summary (max 3 pages) of past research and experience related to the position offered here. These documents must be submitted electronically as a PDF file to the university's Job Center, http://jobcenter.univie.ac.at/en/applications/, referring to Job code 8838 (where some additional information can be found). Review starts 1 September 2018. Applicants should arrange for three letters of reference sent by the referees directly to jobcenter@univie.ac.at.
