Postdoc position at L2IT to work on topics that integrate well with the research of the “gravitational waves” team at L2IT. The selected candidate will work in close collaboration with and under the supervision of the team leader.
- Exploration of the implications of gravitational wave observations on astrophysics, cosmology or fundamental physics
- Analysis of the data collected by the LIGO/Virgo experiments
- Interpretation of the gravitational wave observations by LIGO/Virgo within the larger astrophysical and cosmological context
- Simulations of the future observations by the LISA mission
- Assessment and development of the science case of the LISA mission
- Experience with data analysis or simulations for gravitational wave observations
- Experience with analyses in astrophysics related to gravitational waves
- Research experience on the implications of gravitational wave observations in their astrophysical or cosmological context
- Ability to work within large international collaborations such as LIGO/Virgo and LISA
The Laboratoire des 2 Infinis - Toulouse (L2IT) is a new laboratory established in 2020 with the objective to conduct fundamental research with novel numerical and theoretical approaches to data analysis. The research of the laboratory is focused on particle physics, gravitational waves and the nuclear equation of state, and it is supported by a complementary development of data analysis and data science methodologies.
The “gravitational waves” group at L2IT conducts research on both theoretical and experimental aspects of gravitational wave science, with a distinct focus on exploiting new ideas connecting theory with observations through data analysis and numerical simulations. The group is part of the LISA consortium and currently has two permanent members, Christelle Buy and Nicola Tamanini. They are both members of the Virgo collaboration.
