Postdoctoral position in hydrodynamical modelling of AGB winds

Updated: 3 months ago
Deadline: 16 Jun 2023

We invite applications for a postdoctoral position at the Astronomical Observatory, University of Warsaw, Poland, in an ERC grant "Long Secondary Periods in Pulsating Red Giants - Traces of Exoplanets?". The successful applicant will work on 3D hydrodynamical modelling of AGB stars with companions. Special focus will be put on the evolution of the system in the course of mass exchange between the host and the companion resulting from the AGB wind. Results of this modelling will then be verified against phase-resolved observations of such systems. Previous experience in numerical modelling of AGB winds is essential.

The position is for 2 years with a possible extension to 3 or 4 years. The starting date is flexible but should preferably be before December 2023. The salary is very competitive compared to typical post-doc salaries in Poland, because the position is part of an ERC grant. The job location is the Astronomical Observatory of the University of Warsaw.

- PhD in astronomy/astrophysics
- documented research experience in numerical modelling of winds of AGB stars with companions
- good publication record
- fluency in written and spoken English
