Offer Description

The goal of the project is the homogeneous characterization of the
kinematics, ages and chemical abundances of open clusters and cluster
groups of all ages, in the local disk investigating their formation,
evolution and relation with the field stars, and with the Galaxy. To this
aim, the data of the ESA Gaia space mission will be coupled with high
quality spectroscopic ground based data by the new generation
spectrograph WEAVE at the WHT.
This work will pave the way to the scientific exploitation of future
ground based surveys and instruments such as Rubin-LSST, 4MOST,
MOONS and MSE on which our team is involved. The project is
embedded in an international and diverse ecosystem: the PhD student
will be exposed to large international collaborations such as Gaia,
WEAVE, 4MOST, Rubin-LSST. The selected person will be enrolled at
the PhD School in Astronomy of the Padova University.
