1. PHAROS PHD TRAINING SCHOOL ON MULTI-MESSENGER PHYSICS AND ASTROPHYSICS WITH COMPACT BINARIES (Jena, Allemagne, 11 au 15 mars 2019)

The first PHAROS COST action CA16214 (http://www.pharos.ice.csic.es/) PhD training school on multi-messenger physics and astrophysics with compact binaries will be held in Jena (Germany) from Monday March 11 to Friday March 15 2019 (https://indico.tpi.uni-jena.de/event/2/overview).

The goal of the school is to contribute to the training of the next generation of scientists that will face the problem of interpreting multimessenger signals from compact binaries composed of neutron stars in the coming years. The school is aimed primarily at students and early career researchers and covers the following topics:

* Observational aspects.
- Current and future observatories, their operational mode, and the network organization.
- Main observables and their connection to astrophysical phenomena and sources.
- Relations between the sources and the emission mechanisms in the different bands and channels (gravitational, electromagnetic and neutrinos).
- Observational constraints on neutron star and merger remnant properties, and on the dense matter equation of state.

* Theoretical modeling.
- Formation channels of compact binaries; masses distributions and rates.
- Coalescence dynamics and gravitational signals from general and numerical relativity.
- High-energy astrophysical phenomena; short gamma-ray burst and kilonova modeling and their connection to the strong-field dynamics.
- Role of nuclear and weak interactions in the merger dynamics and remnant; status and challenges of physical input models for theory and simulations.

* Data analysis.
- Bayesian methods and standard tools employed by different communities.
- Shared frameworks for multi-messenger data analysis: status and perspectives.
- Data reduction and observational inputs.-
Input from theoretical modeling: models requirements and interpretation challenges.

There is no registration fee, but online registration before January 10, 2019 is required. Due to space limitations, attendance at the school is limited to approximately 100 people. Partial support for local housing and travel is available upon request. Participants desiring support should apply filling the online registration form (https://indico.tpi.uni-jena.de/event/2/overview).

2. THE NEW ERA OF MULTI-MESSENGER ASTROPHYSICS (Groningen, Pays-Bas, 25 au 29 mars 2019)

*** The New Era of Multi Messenger Astrophysics
*** 25-29 March 2019, Groningen, The Netherlands
*** Website: http://multi-messenger.asterics2020.eu/

The ASTERICS collaboration is pleased to announce the symposium: "The New Era of Multi Messenger Astrophysics". We look forward to welcoming you to Groningen to discuss the recent developments in the fields of gravitational waves, astrophysical neutrinos, the highly energetic dynamic sky, and to explore new methods for multi-messenger science and the related research infrastructures.

The past few years have been pivotal for multi-messenger astrophysics, with the first detection of gravitational waves from the merging of two neutron stars and the recent announcement of a high-energy neutrino event detected by IceCube coincident in direction and time with a gamma-ray flare from a blazar detected by Fermi. Gravitational Wave and Neutrino sources and their electromagnetic counterparts, together with new developments in transient astronomy, are a vibrant field where the nature of many phenomena is still unknown or debated. Furthermore, the new generation of sensitive, wide-field instrumentation across the entire electromagnetic and astroparticle spectrum (SKA, CTA, KM3NeT, ELT, Athena) are set to radically change the way we perceive the Universe. In the next decade, space and ground-based detectors will jointly explore the Universe through all its messengers. Adequate e-infrastructures and algorithms will be needed to manage and analyse the data.

The new era of multi-messenger astrophysics has dawned. The time is right to convene a meeting of international researchers to review recent scientific and technological progress, and to continue planning the future of multi-messenger astrophysics.

The conference will be held from 25 to 29 March 2019, hosted by the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy (ASTRON) on behalf of the ASTERICS collaboration at Martini Plaza in Groningen, The Netherlands. ASTERICS is a Horizon 2020 funded project that collects knowledge and experiences from astronomy, astrophysics and particle physics and fosters synergies among existing research infrastructures and scientific communities, with the ambition of seeing them interoperate as an integrated, multi-wavelength and multi-messenger facility.

1. POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN X-RAY ASTRONOMY, DEPARTEMENT D'ASTROPHYSIQUE, CEA SACLAY

Departement d'Astrophysique, CEA Saclay, 91191 Gif sur Yvette Cedex, France

Contact: Jean Ballet (Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser.)

Deadline: 30 September 2018
Selection: October 2018
Starting date: February 2019
Lab's web site: http://irfu.cea.fr/dap/ (in French)
SSC web site: http://xmmssc.irap.omp.eu/

The astrophysics department at Saclay, which is situated 30 km south of Paris, is a major space astrophysics laboratory and is also involved in ground-based instrumentation. Our institute played a major role in the hardware development and calibration of the EPIC MOS cameras on XMM Newton and participates in the SSC consortium that is responsible for the catalogue of XMM-Newton sources. At high energies, the institute provides important contributions to Integral, Fermi and the future SVOM and Athena missions, as well as the HESS and CTA TeV instruments. Other major projects are JWST/MIRI, Euclid, ELT/METIS.

We invite applications for a position in which the candidate is expected to work half-time on our activities in the XMM SSC consortium, and half-time on science related to our research interests.

Our activities in the XMM SSC consortium include the EPIC MOS data analysis software, the EPIC MOS in flight calibration, screening the products generated by the data processing pipeline and testing the catalogue products.

Our research interests are primarily in two domains:
- clusters of galaxies (M. Arnaud, G. Pratt), where we have recently started exploiting a 3 Ms XMM Heritage program on z < 0.5 Planck SZ-selected clusters, a large international collaboration of which M. Arnaud is one of the two PIs;
- supernova remnants (J. Ballet, F. Acero), where our interests lie mostly around detailed studies of nearby SNRs.

The position is funded by the French space agency CNES. The starting date is early 2019, but applications to start a few months later will be considered
Funding is available for two years, with a possible extension for an additional year. The net salary is approximately 2000 euros/month (2200 if more than two years after PhD), including basic medical insurance.

To apply please submit to Jean Ballet (Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser.) a curriculum vitae, a publication list, a summary of previous research, and a statement describing how you plan to get involved in the team. In addition, please arrange for two letters of recommendation to be sent to the above address by the deadline of 30 September 2018.
