Description of the thesis topic
The PhD candidate is expected to work on protoplanetary discs modeling and planet formation, in tight connection with observers of the institute. The student will perform both theoretical and numerical studies of the in-situ production of magnetic fields by dynamo processes. Access to a local dedicated cluster and national supercomputers (GENCI) is also provided, if needed.
Expected Skills :
• Fluid dynamics and plasma physics basics
• C++ and python programming
Candidates should have a Master in physics or equivalent and show strong interest in physical processes and astrophysics. The starting date is expected to be no later than October 1st, 2022; earlier dates may be possible. The position is funded for 3 years by a European Research Council (ERC) consolidator grant and comes with full benefits together with a generous research and travel budget.
IPAG is a Mixed Research Unit of 150 people under the supervision of the CNRS and the University of Grenoble Alpes. IPAG will provide all the necessary resources (office, workstation, scientific environment) to carry out this work within the dynamic MHDiscs team.
IPAG is seeking applicants for a PhD position in the theoretical modeling of protoplanetary discs. The PhD student will join our research group working on the MHDiscs (www.mhdiscs.fr) project led by Geoffroy Lesur to work on dynamical and radiative models of protoplanetary disc.
To receive full consideration, interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, publication list, and a brief statement of research interests by July 15 2022, via the CNRS portal, and arrange for 1 letter of reference to be sent by the same date to firstname.lastname@example.org.
