Dr. Yves Revaz and Dr. Pascale Jablonka (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale,
EPFL) in collaboration with Profs. Anne Verhamme and Daniel Schaerer
(University of Geneva), announce the availability of a PhD
position, open to applicants of all nationalities.
The successful candidate will work on the development of a radiative
transfer implementation for the task-based cosmological code SWIFT
(http://icc.dur.ac.uk/swift/). The ultimate goal is to run high resolution
simulations of dwarf galaxies during the Epoch ofReionization (EoR),
understand their properties and evaluate their impact during this period.
Combined with state-of-the-art observations diagnostics of the ionizing
photons leakage, this project will provide decisive predictions for the
future surveys designed to probe the EoR.
The candidate will benefit from the supervision of experts in
chemo-dynamical modeling of galaxies, as well as experts in ionizing
radiation, both from a numerical and observational viewpoints.
The Laboratory of Astrophysics of EPFL and the associated Astronomy
Department of the University of Geneva carry out observational and
theoretical research in the fields of galaxy formation and
evolution, observational cosmology, extra-solar planets, stellar
physics, and high energy astrophysics.
