The STELLA (STELlar LAboratory) team at IPHC Strasbourg is focused on direct fusion cross-section of astrophysics interest as well stellar nucleosynthesis simulations. Our experimental station is capable of performing fast-timing gamma-particle coincidence measurements under intense beam bombardment, framed by tight international collaborations.
We call for candidates for a Postdoctoral position (24 months) with the scope of experimentation for astrophysics questions and nucleosynthesis calculations. The successful candidate will substantially contribute to direct methods experimentation and detection system testing, with a focus on STELLA in Strasbourg and Orsay. The candidate is given the opportunity of taking responsibility of maintaining, of exploring future potential and of developing the particle detection-system, based on double sided silicon strip detectors. Closely related to this scope is the participation to data analysis and interpretation of these detectors in terms of timing and energy resolution. Experience of nucleosynthesis codes would be a plus as the group plans to reinforce its efforts with simulations.
The successful candidate is expected to contribute to dissemination of results in articles, workshops or conferences as well as the supervision of undergraduate/graduate students closely related to the working scope
- Editing, monitoring and analysis of experiments of astrophysical interest.
- Proposals or participation in proposals for experiments.
- Travel within the framework of experiences, conferences and international collaborations.
- Simulation calculations in particular of stellar evolution.
- Publication of research work, presentations at international meetings and symposia,
- Supervision of the work of students.
- Holder of a Phd in Physics
- Know how to communicate in scientific English, as the previous published results will attest,
- Have good skills in working in an international collaboration, (contributions to a collective project, meetings and missions outside the laboratory),
- Have good aptitudes for carrying out original and independent work, as evidenced by the candidate's previous activity (thesis, post-doctorate).
The IPHC is a laboratory that combines disciplinary and multidisciplinary excellence with research and development work carried out by its teams at an international level. The post-doctoral fellow will join the DNE group (Du Noyau aux Etoiles) of the IPHC and the international STELLA collaboration (STElLar LAb).
From nucleus to stars team (DNE) - Department of subatomic research (DRS)
The star nucleus team (DNE) brings together experimental physicists who study nuclear reactions of astrophysical interest, 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 by measuring key nuclear reactions at stellar energies. It is in this theme that the post-doctorate proposed here falls.
The post-doctoral fellow will be part of the DNE group (Du Noyau aux Etoiles) of the IPHC and of the international STELLA collaboration (STElLar LAb).
Constraints and risks
