|One PhD fellowship to perform a thesis on Galactic Archaeology, the Gaia mission and cool evolved Carbon stars|
Applications are invited for a pre-doctoral contract in observations and theory of carbons stars
within the context of the Gaia mission at the Universidad de Granada (Spain) in tight collaboration with the Observatoire de la
Côte d'Azur (France).
The successful applicant will work with Profs. Carlos Abia, Inmaculada Domínguez (UGR) and Prof. Patrick de Laverny
(OCA) on the analysis and interpretation of the Gaia data of cool AGB carbon stars of different spectral types. Spectral analysis
of optical/infrared high resolution spectra to disentangle their chemical composition is also planned together with a theoretical
interpretation on the basis of the state-of-the-art evolutionary models in the AGB phase. Experience in data treatment, numerical
methods, computer programming and astronomical imaging analysis can be an asset but not mandatory. Applicants must have completed
a Master Degree by the start of the fellowship (June-Sept 2023). The appointment will be for four years, which includes de inclusion in
the Spanish's Public Health System. The successfully applicant would be enrolled in the Ph.D. Program on Physics and Space Science
of the University of Granada. Long stays in the Observatoire de la Côte d'Azur are expected during the duration of the fellowship.
The applicant could obtain a double European Ph.D Degree from both the University of Granada and l'Université de la Côte d'Azur.
The Dpt. of Física Teórica y del Cosmos at the Universidad de Granada currently has 10 faculty members working on stellar
astrophysics, extragalactic astrophysics, and cosmology, 10 post-docs, and 2 Ph.D. students as well as several of
undergraduate students. Interested applicants should submit a CV, presentation letter, description of research interests and two
contact persons for reference directly to Prof. Carlos Abia (cabia @ ugr.es). Applications will be opened on the web by end of October,
beginning of November 2022, of which the interested parties will be informed in due time.
