-This post-doctoral position is part of the European H2020 Chetec-Infra project (Chemical Elements as Tracers of the Evolution of the Cosmos - Infrastructures for Nuclear Astrophysics, https://www.chetec-infra.eu).
The research project concerns the study of nuclear reactions of astrophysical interest, a current topic in full swing. In particular, the project is centered around the measurement of low-energy fusion reactions at facilities in France and around the world, in particular with the STELLA experiment (STElLar LAb). The methods used will be direct methods and the interpretation of the data will be performed in terms of nuclear structure and of the evolution of massive stars.
Instrumentation and detection system testing will be performed to prepare the experiments.
The post-doctoral fellow will also be involved in the interpretation of the results of these Nuclear Astrophysics experiments. Simulation calculations will be performed, in particular concerning the stellar evolution.


Preparation, monitoring and analysis of nuclear physics experiments of astrophysical interest.
Experiment proposals.
Travel as part of international experiences, conferences and collaborations.
Simulation calculations.
Publication of research work, presentations in international meetings and conferences,
Supervision of the work of students.


- PhD in Physics,
- Good skills in scientific communication (fluent oral and written scientific English),
- At least 2 articles published as first author
- Demonstrate autonomy
- Have good skills to work in an international collaboration (contributions to a collective project, meetings and missions outside the laboratory)
- Have good skills in carrying out original and independent work, as evidenced by the candidate's previous activity (thesis, post-doctorate),
- Have experience in Nuclear Physics reactions and possibly in Astrophysics or Nuclear Astrophysics.

Work Context

The IPHC is a laboratory that combines disciplinary and multidisciplinary excellence research and development work carried out at the highest international level. The post-doctoral fellow will join the DNE (Du Noyau aux Etoiles) group of the IPHC and the international STELLA collaboration (STElLar LAb).
From Nuclei to Stars team (DNE) - Department of subatomic research (DRS)
The Nuclei to Stars team (DNE) brings together experimental physicists who study nuclear reactions of astrophysical interest, the reaction mechanisms, perform spectroscopy of exotic nuclei and search for new isotopes or superheavy elements. The DNE group also has a long tradition of instrumental developments. Recently the group has expanded its activities towards understanding the late phases of massive stars through the measurement of key nuclear reactions at stellar energies. It is within this topic that the post-doctoral fellow will work.
They will be part of the DNE (Du Noyau aux Etoiles) group of the IPHC and of the international STELLA collaboration (STElLar LAb).

Constraints and risks

They will perform experiments in partners labs in France and abroad, according to the needs of the experiments. Duration as required for project progress (from 1 week to 2 months).
