Up to two Postdoctoral positions in the field of protoplanetary disks, and Star and
Planet Formation will be offered.
The postdoctoral researcher(s) will join project ”Dust2Planets” at IPAG (From Dust to
Planets: A Novel Approach to Constrain Dust Growth and the Planet Forming Zone in
Disks). The project is led by François Ménard and funded by the European Research
Council (ERC) via a 5-yr ERC-Advanced grant. The goal of Dust2Planets is to study the processes at work in the early stages of planet formation, in particular by studying the evolution of protoplanetary disks and the evolution of the dust they contain.
Up to two postdoc positions will be offered in this call, depending on the applications
received. The selected candidates will be expected to lead studies in the field of dust
and disk evolution within the Dust2Planets team. The successful applicant will also be
encouraged to develop independent research projects. IPAG hosts 7 research groups
working on all aspects of star and planet formation. They are strongly involved in
cutting-edge theoretical, numerical, and observational programmes. IPAG provides a
very dynamic and competitive research environment.
For these postdoc positions, a PhD in physics, astronomy or a related field is required.
Previous experience in the study of dust properties and/or disk evolution either from
the observational and/or modelling side, would be useful. The position(s) can be
appointed for up to 3 years, renewable annually. Positions can start as early as
December 1st, 2023 – and preferably no later than March 31st 2024.
Remuneration will depend on the candidate's experience and will guarantee access to social security. There will be a budget for the missions.
