A 2+1 year postdoctoral position is available at ETH Zurich in computer simulations of planet-formation within the group of Prof. Judit Szulagyi. It is funded by an ERC Starting grant, with the desired starting date of Sep. 2021 (+/- few months is possible).
The project is attacking the question of how the observed diversity of planets is linked to the local disk environment where the planets are forming. They will carry out 3D (radiative) thermo-hydrodynamical simulations with dust+gas with an exsisting code (written in C language), and further develop that code to add additional physics, e.g. self-gravity.
The postdoc will be part of a vibrant research atmosphere with numerous groups working on various aspects of planetary science in ETH Zurich and within the Switzerland-wide large collaboration of NCCR PlanetS.
