Applications are invited for a 2-year Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work with Dr. Benoît Commerçon and Dr. Guillaume Laibe at the Centre de Recherche Astrophysique de Lyon (http://cral.univ-lyon1.fr) in the AstroENS team based at École Normale Supérieure de Lyon on characterising and modelling astrophysical dusty turbulence in the context of star and planet formation.
This includes any of the following aspects:
- Numerical simulations of dusty turbulence at different scales with the Adaptative Mesh-Refinement grid-based or Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics methods.
- Modelling the statistics of interstellar dusty turbulence.
- Interpreting the experiments of dusty turbulence conducted at the Physics Department at ENS de Lyon (UMR5672).
The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. in Astrophysics, Physics or Applied mathematics in relation with hydrodynamics with experience in turbulence, high-performance computing or dust-gas flows.
By August 16th 2019, enthusiastic candidates should submit on the web platform at this address i) a CV including a publication list, ii) a brief statement of research interests and iii) arrange for three letters of reference to be provided separately (sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com). Applications which will not be submitted on the web platform can not be considered.
