The University of Paris Cité calls for applications for a Postdoctoral position in Data Intensive Astroparticle Physics to support the activities of the research group of Prof. Yvonne Becherini through the funding of the “IdEx Chair of Excellence”. The appointment intends to boost several topics in Very High Energy gamma-ray and neutrino astrophysics through the application of Machine learning methods, and in particular Deep Learning. The candidate will benefit both from the “Astroparticle and Cosmology” laboratory (APC) and from the “Data Intelligence Institute of Paris” (diiP) environments.
The diiP is a multidisciplinary research environment associated with many data-driven research groups working on all topics at the University of Paris Cité (Medicine, Earth Sciences, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology, Social Sciences, Digital Humanities, etc). In diiP, the candidate will also have a role in communicating and interacting with other research disciplines, with the goal of knowledge exchange around data analysis techniques.
The position is open to candidates with either a PhD in Physics/Astronomy, or a PhD in Computer Science (no prior experience with astrophysics is required) and can start as soon as the candidate has been selected.
Send a cover letter, a CV, links to the PhD thesis and previous publications, and contact information,of at least two referees to yvonne.becheriniapc.in2p3.fr, before August 15, 2022.
All necessary information can be found here.
