Dear Colleague, 

We would like to bring to you attention that we are opening  an associate Professor position at IPGP in Paris (Fr)
( ) focused on the physics of exoplanets, intended for scientist working on rocky exoplanets and interface between atmosphere an interior.
IPGP , a strong center for geosciences, wants to develop an exoplanet activity, with several teams  potentially interested,  already working on magma ocean physics, magma/atmosphere interactions, escape, differentiation,2nd  atmosphere formation, EOS and link with observations like JWST or forthcoming ARIEL or ELT instruments.
The  "Maitre de Conférence Position" (equivalent to Associate Professor) that is a mixed research/teaching position, is focused on "exoplanets" at the interface between rocky exoplanets interior and surface processes.  with keywords : rocky-exoplanets, interior-surface interactions, detections, geology and surface processes. 
This position  will be open to recruitment in March 2024 at "Université Paris Cité" and will be affected to IPGP for an excellent candidate. The applicant needs to be able to teach in French. (=fluent French)
If you are potentially interested please take contact with me (Sébastien CHARNOZ, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) so that we can discuss for a potential application and visit to IPGP.
Best regards
Sébastien CHarnoz

Título:  One Postdoctoral Contract Machine Learning 2023 (PS-2023-075)

Centro:  Instituto de Astrofísica de Canarias

Tipo:  Postdoctoral


The IAC (Tenerife) announces ONE postdoctoral contract to work on the project linked to the line of research “Machine and Deep Learning in Astrophysics: structural evolution of galaxies with EUCLID and JWST” The contract is funded by the project “Building a physicAl underStanding of gAlaxy evoLution with data-driven asTronomy (BASALT)” (PID2021-126838NB-I00), led by Dr. Huertas-Company.

Research topics at the IAC include most areas of astrophysics: Solar Physics (FS), Exoplanetary System and Solar System (SEYSS), Stellar and Interstellar Physics (FEEI), The Milky Way and The Local Group (MWLG), Formation and Evolution of Galaxies (FYEG), and Cosmology and Astroparticles (CYA-CTA). All of these are supported by an ambitious instrumentation programme. In 2020, the IAC was granted by the Spanish Government the status of Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence, a prestigious recognition awarded for the third time to the IAC as a leading research institute in Spain. Further information about the IAC's research programme, its Observatories and the 10.4m GTC is available at the IAC's web page:

Tasks: The successful candidate will join the group of M. Huertas-Company working on galaxy formation and machine learning. The candidate will have the opportunity to work  - among other datasets - with JWST and Euclid observations as well as with cosmological simulations and is expected to develop and/or use novel probabilistic deep learning inference techniques to address a variety of galaxy formation related problems. Our group is particularly interested in constraining star-formation, merger histories and structural transformations of galaxies with large datasets. 

Particular attention will be given to applicants with experience in the field of galaxy formation, galaxy morphology/structure and/or machine learning. Previous experience with large spectro-photometric surveys will be also considered a plus. 

Requirements: The candidates must have an excellent research record, commensurate with the duration of their research career. They must be in possession of a Ph.D. degree in Astrophysics or Physics by the application deadline. Candidates who have not received their doctorate before the deadline will not be admitted to the selection process. Applicants who prepared their thesis at the IAC have to present accreditations of complementary training at other research centers (this period should be either 1 continuous year or 18 accumulated months) by the application deadline. The IAC is an equal-opportunity employer. We encourage, in particular, applications by women and by members of minorities.
