We invite applications for postdoctoral positions to participate in
the H2020 XMM2ATHENA project. XMM2ATHENA is a collaboration of 9
European Institutes including members of the XMM-Newton Science ground segment along with key members of the Athena Science ground segment. The goal of the project is to develop new, innovative methods to maximise the return from the current X-ray Observatory XMM-Newton and prepare for the forthcoming X-ray mission Athena.
This position will be hosted at IRAP in Toulouse, France. IRAP is the
PI institute for the XMM2ATHENA project as well as being responsible
for the XMM-Newton Survey Science Centre, and the PI institute for the
X-IFU instrument that will fly on the Athena X-ray observatory.
Lead efforts to develop innovative software to automatically detect serendipitously observed X-ray transients – identify transients using multi-wavelength and multi-messenger data.
Experience in high energy astrophysics -- programming skills -- experience in compact objects – interpreting data from other wavelengths.
The post is open to candidates of any nationality who hold a PhD.
The group at IRAP is also involved in other current and future projects such as the VLT, INTEGRAL, Fermi, NuSTAR, CTA, SVOM, Euclid, SKA, ELT, Theseus and LISA and has particular interests in neutron stars, ultra luminous X-ray sources, compact binaries in general and intermediate mass black holes.
