Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in star formation and astrochemistry at the Institute of Research in Astrophysics and Planetology (IRAP, Toulouse). The successful applicant will work with Dr Audrey Coutens in the framework of the ERC project Chemtrip (grant agreement 949278), whose ultimate goal is to reconstruct the physico-chemical evolution from the deeply embedded protostellar stage to the planet forming disk stage, through multi-source analyses of high angular resolution observations combined with chemical modeling studies. The postdoctoral researcher will investigate the evolution of the chemical complexity in solar-type protostars with ALMA and NOEMA observations. This is a 2-year position with the possibility of an extension with a third year (upon performance). The starting date can be as early as September 2021 (preferred) and should not be later than December 2021. The candidates must have a PhD in astrophysics or in a closely related discipline. They should have some expertise in radio/submm observations, preferably in the areas of star formation and/or astrochemistry. Experience in the reduction and analysis of interferometric data is an advantage. Experience with radiative transfer codes is also appreciated. Teamwork ability is essential. Interested candidates should send a cover letter, a curriculum vitae, a publication list, and a brief statement of research interests to firstname.lastname@example.org. They should also arrange for two letters of reference to be sent separately to the same address. The deadline is 23 April 2021. Later applications will be considered until the position is filled.
