A postdoctoral grant is available in the field of protoplanetary disks, debris disks and imaging of exoplanetary systems. The postdoctoral researcher will join the DDISK project (Disk Discoveries: Investigating morphology and duSt properties with breaKthrough data science) funded by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) over 4 years. The DDISK group is led by Maud Langlois at the Centre de Recherche Astrophysique de Lyon (CRAL), and also includes two other astrophysics laboratories: the Institut de Planétologie et d'Astrophysique de Grenoble (IPAG) and the Laboratoire d'Etudes Spatiales et d'Instrumentation en Astrophysique (LESIA, in Paris-Meudon).
The postdoctoral contract will take place at IPAG, where the DDISK team is coordinated by Julien Milli. The aim of the project is to unveil and analyse the morphology of circumstellar disks and to extract the properties of dust particles. It will be based on an analysis of high contrast and high angular resolution observations, in the visible and near infrared domains, using innovative algorithms developed by our team. This work is being carried out in collaboration with other research projects being carried out at IPAG on dust growth, algorithm development, laboratory measurements of dust analogues, and the study of solar system dust.
The postdoctoral researcher will be expected to carry out observations, data processing and interpretations of circumstellar disks and to collaborate actively within the DDISK project, itself integrated into the IPAG Odyssey and Exoplanets teams. The successful candidate will also be encouraged to develop independent research projects related to planetary formation.
A PhD in physics, astronomy or a similar field is required. Previous experience in the study of dust properties or in high contrast and high angular resolution observations would be useful, particularly in polarimetry. The post will be awarded for a period of 12+6 months, the last 6 months being subject to successful integration and collaboration with the DDISK team. The post may be taken up from 1 February 2024 and before 30 April 2024. Salary will depend on experience, in accordance with CNRS salary scales. The position also includes access to social security and a budget for missions. We see diversity as an asset within a team and also encourage applications from atypical backgrounds. Interested candidates can contact Julien Milli (email: email@example.com) for any enquiries about the project.
Contexte de travail
The Institut de Planétologie & d'Astrophysique de Grenoble (IPAG) is a Joint Research Unit of 160 people under the supervision of the CNRS and the Université Grenoble Alpes. IPAG will provide all the necessary resources (office, workstation, scientific environment) to carry out this work within the Odyssey and Exoplanets teams. The postdoctoral researcher will join the IPAG research group working on the DDISK project.
Contraintes et risques
Interested candidates must apply via the CNRS job portal by submitting a CV (max. 2 pages), a cover letter, a description of research activities and the planned research project (max. 5 pages) and a list of publications.
Two letters of recommendation should be sent before 15 December 2023 to firstname.lastname@example.org for the attention of Julien Milli.
