2 Postdoc positions in Trinity College Dublin
Two 3-year postdoctoral positions are available to work on modelling outflows
from stars (winds) and exoplanets (atmospheric escape). The scholars will
work in the group of Dr Aline Vidotto at Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland.
The results of these models will be directly compared to observations of
exoplanetary mass loss, such as those provided by the CUTE cubesat mission.
Candidates should have obtained by the starting date a PhD in Astronomy,
Physics or related scientific field. Applicants should have experience with
numerical and/or theoretical models of astrophysical flows. Experience with
MHD modelling is desirable.
Starting dates are negotiable, and could be as early as November 2018, but
no later than June 2019.
Salaries of postdoctoral researchers follow the Irish University Associations
salary scale, with a gross salary of 36854 in the first year (Point 1 at
Level 2) and one Point increment per year from thereafter. Funds for
conference travel (3000 per year) and computer resources will also be
available. These positions are pensionable.
Interested candidates should send a cover letter together with a CV, a summary
of their research activities and publication list to [log in to unmask]

September 2018 will receive full consideration. After this date, applications

open until filled.
