Postdoc positions at APC Paris

Oct 30, 2019

Applications are invited for two postdoctoral research positions: one at the “Astroparticule et Cosmologie (APC)” Institute in Paris, and another one joint between APC and the “Institute d’Astrophysique de Paris (IAP)” also in Paris. Appointments are for two-years, in the context of the ANR-funded project “Opening new windows on the early universe with multi-messenger astronomy”, in collaboration with Moscow and Novosibirsk Universities.  In particular, the project focuses on four observables: cosmic magnetic fields, stochastic gravitational wave backgrounds, cosmic rays and dark matter in the form of primordial black holes.

Dealine for application: December 15th, 2019.

For the first position, the successful candidate (preferably less than 3 years after Ph.D.) will ideally have expertise on  early-universe cosmological simulations, and will concentrate on studying the magnetic field and gravitational wave production at cosmological phase transitions, with the final aim of assessing their present-day observational signatures. She/He will join the APC theory group and work in close collaboration with Chiara Caprini, Andrii Neronov and Dmitri Semikoz (APC). The successful candidate will be able to join the LISA Consortium. A Ph.D. in physics or astrophysics is required, and a demonstrated ability to carry out independent research is expected. The salary will depend on the candidate’s track record, following CNRS hiring rules. Enquiries about this position can be addressed to Dmitri Semikoz: dmitri.semikoz(AT)apc.univ-paris7.fr

For the second position, the successful candidate (preferably less than 3 years after Ph.D.), will ideally have expertise on  numerical simulations of large-scale structure, and will contribute to the modelling of the magnetic field evolution with constrained cosmological simulations reproducing the observed LSS in the local Universe, and to the modelling of the propagation of high-energy particles through the so predicted magnetic field. She/He will work in close collaboration with Guilhem Lavaux (IAP), Andrii Neronov (APC) and Dmitri Semikoz (APC), and is expected to spend about 50% of the total working time in each institute. The successful candidate will also be able to join the Aquila collaboration (https://www.aquila-consortium.org/). A Ph.D. in physics or astrophysics is required, and a demonstrated ability to carry out independent research is expected. The salary will depend on the candidate’s track record, following CNRS hiring rules. Enquiries about this position can be addressed to Dmitri Semikoz: dmitri.semikoz(AT)apc.univ-paris7.fr
