Postdoctoral position in stellar astrophysics in Lagrange Laboratory (Nice, France)

Updated: about 2 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 30 Jun 2021

Dear colleagues,

A postdoctoral position in stellar astrophysics is proposed in the framework of the funded ANR project PEPPER ( )

The post-doctoral researcher will work at the Observatory of Côte d’azur (OCA, Nice) together with Dr. Andrea Chiavassa (Lagrange laboratory, OCA, Nice) and Dr. Bernd Freytag (Uppsala University, Sweden) on the computation/analysis of a new grid of evolved stars simulations including the magnetic field. These simulations (of paramount importance for the project) will provide knowledge basis on mechanisms launching evolved stars winds, thanks to the magneto-convection processes.

The successful candidate should have a PhD degree or a foreign degree equivalent to a PhD degree in Astronomy or Physics. 

By June, 30, enthusiastic candidates should send:

i) a CV including a publication list (4 pages max),

ii) a statement of research interests (2 pages max),

iii) arrange for three letters of reference to be provided separately to  using “PEPPER postdoc” in the email header.

Best wishes,

Andrea Chiavassa
