Research Fellow (Astronomy & Astrophysics)

Fixed-term position for 2 years

The Astronomy & Astrophysics group at the University of Warwick is seeking one ambitious post-doctoral researcher to work within the project “Evolution of white dwarfs with 3D model atmospheres”. The position is funded by an ERC Starting Grant held by Dr. Pier-Emmanuel Tremblay, and the candidate will join an existing team of PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers. The proposed project will be centred on the exploitation of the Gaia Data Release 2 colours and trigonometric parallaxes for white dwarfs. The post-doctoral researcher is expected to investigate questions ranging from the star formation history in the Milky Way, the composition of the interior of white dwarfs, and the nature of magnetic degenerates.
