We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to work with Dr. Paolo
Padovani, ESO, Prof. Maria Petropoulou, National & Kapodistrian University of Athens,
Greece, Prof. Elisa Resconi, Technische Universität München, and others on the
identification of the astrophysical sources of IceCube neutrinos.
This will involve: 1. participation to the Spectra of IceCube Neutrino (SIN)
candidate source project; 2. modelling their spectral energy distributions
using all available multi-wavelength data and subsequently the expected
neutrino emission from each blazar; 3. determining the likelihood of a
connection between the neutrino and the blazar using a physical model
for the blazar multi-messenger emissions. We seek candidates with significant
theoretical experience in non-thermal/hadronic radiation models and/or
astroparticle code development. In addition, experience in data science and
statistics would be a significant asset. The ideal candidate has a PhD in Astronomy
or Astroparticle Physics with high-energy and multi-messenger expertise.
The position is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) through the
ORIGINS Excellence Cluster and SFB 1258 and is available immediately for
two years. At ESO, and in Garching, the researcher will enjoy an invaluable training
opportunity and a vibrant environment at one of the world's foremost observatories,
located in a campus with a high density of astronomical and physics institutes.
Candidates should send a curriculum vitae, bibliography, and short
(max 2 pages) statement of research interests as a single PDF under a
subject heading “Postdoc Position — YOUR NAME” to [email protected] and
arrange for three letters of reference to be sent electronically to
the same address.
