Postdoctoral position on Complexity in Astrobiology

Application deadline:

Centro de Astrobiología (CAB, CSIC-INTA) is offering 1 postdoctoral position within the María de Maeztu Excellence Program «Assesing the feasibility of life as a universal phenomenon through planetary exploration».

Ttitle: «Complexity in Astrobiology»


    -Study of the chemical complexity of the interstellar medium.

    -Development of a computational environment to simulate the chemical processes taking place in the interstellar medium that lead to the observed chemical complexity.

    -This development requires the following tasks:
    a) definition of the formalism and use cases,
    b) adaptation of the complexity theory to the astrochemical case,
    c) implementation and testing.

    -In order to carry out the objectives established in the project, the recruitment of a PhD in Physics, Mathematical Modeling, Computer Engineering or similar, with a desirable background in programming and in complexity and network theory, is required.

Duration: 6 month-contract

Location: CAB Torrejón de Ardoz (Madrid)
