POSTES, OFFRES DE THÈSES, CONTRATS POST-DOCTORAUX

1. POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN ASTROPARTICLE PHYSICS AT LAPTH, ANNECY (FR)

Deadline on Jan 10, 2022

Job description:
A 2yr postdoc position is open at LAPTh, Annecy, France, starting in Fall 2022 (earlier start possible). Application and selection will be carried out starting in December 2021, until the position is filled. We accept applications until the position is filled, but priority will be given to applications received by 22 Dec.

We expect the successful candidate to work at the interface between high-energy astrophysics and dark matter astroparticle physics, in order to study the properties of new fundamental particles by exploiting observations of the very high-energy sky.
Know-how in dark matter indirect detection and knowledge of the theory of particle acceleration in high-energy sources and propagation in the interstellar medium is recommended (but not mandatory).

Broader profiles in galactic or gravitational dynamics, or particle astrophysics/cosmology will be also considered.
Strong motivation to work at the frontier of different fields will be particularly appreciated.

The candidate will be hosted by the Astroparticle & Cosmology team of the CNRS Laboratoire d'Annecy-le-Vieux de Physique Théorique (LAPTh), and will be a member of the ENIGMASS Labex (LAPTh-LAPP-LPSC) network of excellence.
LAPTh benefit from its strategic position. Being only 45km far from CERN, LAPTh members regularly visit CERN TH and also can get a special visitor status which allows them to visit CERN at least once a week.
Collaboration with members of the experimental Virgo, HESS, CTA and LSST group at LAPP (Annecy) is foreseen.
Net salary is fixed by French law and depends on experience. It includes social insurance and up to ~35 days of vacation.

Application: Applicants must submit the following documents: (1) a cover letter explaining their interest in the position (also describing the candidate research programme) and (2) a detailed curriculum vitae (containing a description of their research experience with a list of publications highlighting their personal contributions).
Candidates should send the application material to Francesca Calore at Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser.
Email header for letters: "Application of applicant's name, applicant's first name”

Recommendation letters: A maximum of 3 letters of recommendation should be sent directly by the candidate’s referees.

2. POSTDOC POSITIONS AT THE TSUNG-DAO LEE INSTITUTE (TDLI)

Dear Colleagues,

For your information, we have openings for postdoc positions at the Tsung-Dao Lee Institute (TDLI) in Shanghai. If you know students or postdocs in our field who are looking for a postdoc position, please feel free to draw their attention to the following two adverts:

(1) Postdocs in all areas of astrophysics (Please note the approaching deadline: Dec, 20! Apologies for the late notice). Applications are via AJO:
https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/19587

(2) And a postdoc in theoretical particle/high-energy astrophysics (broadly defined), in my new group at TDLI (Deadline: Jan, 10; Apply by email):
https://inspirehep.net/jobs/1986505

Candidates interested in this position "(2)" are encouraged to apply both for "(1)" and "(2)": The conditions and salary for positions "(1)" are more advantageous, and candidates selected for "(1)" can work with my group too.

Thank you very much in advance,
Best regards,

Gwenael Giacinti
