This project will investigate compact object mergers and their gravitational wave signature. We are looking for a young researcher with interdisciplinary skills at the interface between numerical relativity and dense matter theoretical modeling. The project will contain a large numerical commitment aiming at solving the general relativity hydrodynamic equations and implementing state-of-the-art microscopical properties.
On August 17th, 2017, the detection of gravitation waves GW170817 from neutron star mergers have openned a new window for the understanding of gravity, dark matter and dense matter. In the future, this understanding will be greatly improved thanks to the new observational campaign which will largely increase the number of detected events. Confronting dense matter theoretical modeling with these new data requires a global hydrodynamical simulation including general relativity, neutrino transport, a set of trustable equations of state, and accurate microphysical inputs. We expect that the candidate will first get hand with an existing hydrodynamical simulation in order to implement extensions for dense matter, and will contribute to development of new and well-grounded microscopic modeling.
The candidates should demonstrate the ability to work in a research environment, communicate regularly with the research group and carry the project with a large autonomy. A good experience with numerical tools will be appreciated, as well as skills or great interest in numerical relativity, skills or great interest in nuclear/hadron physics. A large part of the project will be devoted to get results from a global simulation.
Applicants should have their PhD at the time the project starts and must have a postdoctoral experience of less than two years.
CNRS is a French pluri-disciplinary research center. The nuclear physics Institute of Lyon (IPNL) is a research laboratory co-ventured by CNRS and Claude Bernard University (UCBL) with about 200 people which interest goes from the understanding of particle and nuclear physics up to the universe, such as cosmology, gravitational waves, neutron stars, including also application for medicine and energy. The project will operate within the theory group where researches ranges from cold atoms up to particle physics beyond standard model, including nuclear physics, hadron physics and nuclear astrophysics.
The successful candidate will work closely with three researchers in the group. The group is also member of the PHAROS COST European network which organizes conferences, workshops and schools in compact star physics.
The group have access to a local computer with 142 CPU, as well as to the supercomputers from CC-IN2P3.
Constraints and risks
No specific risk since it is a theoretical project. The ability to present results to national, European and international conference will be appreciated.
Recomandation letter and CV should preferably be submited online.
