The Institute for Research on Exoplanets (iREx), affiliated with the physics department of the University of Montreal (UdeM), invites applications for a postdoctoral fellowship in experimental, observational or theoretical astrophysics applied to the study of exoplanets. A number of iREx projects are described below for reference.
Applicants should submit a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and a statement of research interests (max 2 pages), and should arrange to have three referees send a letter of reference. All application materials including letters of reference must be received electronically at the following address: email@example.com, by December 15th 2020 for full consideration. This position will, however, remain open until filled.
A PhD in physics, astronomy or related discipline is required at the time when the position starts. Preference will be given to applicants within 3 years of obtaining their PhD. The successful applicant is expected to start between May and September 2021. The position is for two years, renewable for a third year subject to performance and availability of funds.
The iREx consists of a growing team of over 50 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 such as the JWST, SPIRou and NIRPS.
