Applications are invited for a 2-year Postdoctoral Research Fellow to work with Dr. Benoît Commerçon at the Centre de Recherche Astrophysique de Lyon (http://cral.univ-lyon1.fr) in the AstroENS team based at École Normale Supérieure de Lyon on characterising and modelling protostellar disk formation and evolution using multidimensional numerical simulations. The project aims at linking the scale between molecular clouds and protoplanetary disk by considering non-isolated disks and large scale infall. The focus of the project is to characterise the disk structure as well as the inflow structure resulting from the collapse of a dense core in order to investigate the environment in which planet will form.
The project includes the following aspects:
- numerical simulations of dusty fluids, (non-ideal) magneto-hydrodynamics and radiation-hydrodynamics;
- numerical simulations of protostellar collapse and disk formation and evolution or molecular cloud evolution;
- comparison of numerical models with observations, synthetic observations.
The successful candidate should have a Ph.D. in Astrophysics, Physics or Applied mathematics in relation with hydrodynamics with experience in high-performance computing, star and planet formation or dust-gas flows.
The project is part of the French ANR Collaborative Research Program DISKBUILD which gathers teams at Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (IPGP, team of Sébastien Charnoz, PI), Centre de Recherche Astrophysique de Lyon (CRAL, team of Benoît Commerçon) and Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur (OCA, team of Alessandro Morbidelli).
