Institute of Planetology and Astrophysics of Grenoble, France is seeking applicants for a postdoctoral research associate position. The postdoctoral researcher will join our research group working on the MHDiscs (www.mhdiscs.fr) project led by Geoffroy Lesur to work on dynamical and radiative models of protoplanetary disc.
The postdoc is expected to work on protoplanetary discs modeling and planet formation, in tight connection with observers of the institute. The researcher will perform both theoretical and numerical studies of the planet-disc-wind interaction and predict observational signatures of this interaction. Access to a local dedicated cluster and national supercomputers (GENCI) is also provided, if needed. The postdoc will be given the opportunity to supervise PhD students and benefits from the support of computation engineers for specific numerical developments required by the project.
