Job Announcement Text: 

Applications are invited for a Ph.D. student position in exoplanets at Chalmers University of Technology within the Astronomy and Plasma Physics Division of the Department of Space, Earth and Environment.

The exoplanet group participates in several international collaborations and space missions such as CHEOPS, TESS, and the future PLATO mission. We combine transit light curves from space missions with follow-up observations from ground-based facilities to discover and characterise exoplanets. The objective is to address the diversity among exoplanets and to improve the understanding of exoplanet demographics, formation and evolution. The successful applicant will have the opportunity to influence the details of the research project. 

Full-time temporary employment. Starting date is negotiable but is expected to be early-mid 2021.

To qualify as a Ph.D. student, you must have an MSc degree or equivalent in astrophysics, geophysics, scientific computing or physics. Experience with exoplanets, stars, observational techniques, computing skills including programming in one or more of the common languages in astronomy research, machine learning techniques, and first-hand experience in scientific writing and communication is an asset. Good command of the English language and writing skills are required.
