- PostDoc Position in Exoplanet atmospheres – links to observations at the Space Research Institute IWF, Graz (Austria)
The Space Research Institute (IWF) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (OeAW), is offering a PostDoc Position in Exoplanet atmospheres – links to observations. The successful candidate will join the IWF research group "Exoplanets: Weather & Climate" led by Prof. Christiane Helling as part of the OeAW´s efforts to expand the theme of exoplanet research at the IWF in Graz, Austria. The candidate is expected to contribute by linking complex modelling results to observations and by doing scientific data interpretation and preparation for PLATO, Ariel, and other future missions. The applicant must hold a PhD in the relevant fields of astrophysics. The appointment begins as early as November 01st, 2023 and will be for three years.
Application deadline: 2023-07-20
- Post Doctoral fellowship at (IMPMC, Sorbonne University, CNRS & MNHN)
A 18 months Post Doctoral fellowship is available at Institut de Mineralogie, de Physique des Materiaux et de Cosmochimie (IMPMC, Sorbonne University, CNRS and MNHN), in collaboration with the PASTEUR Lab (Dept of Chemistry of ENS, CNRS, SU). The latest starting date is 1st of November 2023. Candidates are required to have a PhD in Physics, Chemistry or Materials Science. The project is mainly focused on the investigation of prebiotic chemical reactions in solution by numerical simulations, enhanced sampling, ML approaches. Prior knowledge of numerical simulations using, e.g., DFT, MD, is expected. Experience of one or several of the following codes is considered an advantage: CP2K, Quantum-Espresso, Plumed, LAMMPS.
Latest Starting Date: 2023-11-01
- Open Postdoc Position in Analytical Chemistry/Geochemistry
Applications for a postdoctoral position to work on molecular evolution related to post-impact processes generated after interplanetary bodies impact of the early Earth is open, between the ASTRO´ team of the PIIM laboratory and the Evolution of Bioenergetics´ team of the BIP laboratory at Aix-Marseille University, Institut Origines, Marseille, France. The main task will consist in developing experiments simulating sub-surface environments, to understand how a molecular diversity as observed in some meteorites could evolve once delivered at the surface of the early Earth. Environments to simulate will concern hydrothermal alteration in subsurface allowing organic interactions with minerals and UV photons. These experiments will address the hypothesis of an exogenous supply of organic matter via interplanetary bodies on telluric planets, and its potential role in the emergence of prebiotic chemical systems.
Application deadline: 2023-07-15
