Postdoc position in low-frequency radio astronomy

The Institute of Space Sciences (Institut de Ciències de l’Espai, ICE -CSIC), invites applications for one post-doctoral position, to start in 2023 (flexible). The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the proposal, carry and analyze radio campaigns targeting exoplanetary systems and cool brown dwarfs, using in particular GMRT, LOFAR and VLA.

The Institute of Space Sciences (ICE-CSIC), in Barcelona, invites applications for one post-doctoral position, to start in 2023 (flexible), for a duration of about 2.5 years (also negotiable).

The post-doc position will fit within the young IMAGINE group, whose project (funded by an ERC Starting Grant) aims at considering the magnetic imprints on exoplanets from observational and theoretical perspectives. The successful candidate is expected to contribute to the proposal, carry and analyze radio campaigns targeting exoplanetary systems and cool brown dwarfs, using in particular GMRT, LOFAR and VLA. Partial dedication to other lines of research and collaborations will of course be possible.

We collaborate with other groups at ICE-CSIC, in particular the star formation group, led by J.M. Girart, and the exoplanet group led by Ignasi Ribas and Guillem Anglada-Escudé.

Applicants are expected to have experience in radio interferometry. The successful candidate, if interested to stay longer, will receive support and advise in applying to national and European calls (Ramon y Cajal, Marie-Curie Fellowships, ERC Grants, etc.).
