Past announcements

PhD position in my group: A PhD position is available to work on “Stellar winds of M dwarfs: Can red stars host habitable exoplanets?”. The student will work under supervision of Dr Aline Vidotto at Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland. The project involves the use of 3D state-of-the-art numerical codes to model winds of M dwarfs and assess the wind interaction with orbiting exoplanets. M dwarfs are currently the main targets in searches for potentially-habitable terrestrial exoplanets. The work will make use of magnetic maps derived from observations through the Bcool consortium and through the SPIRou Legacy Survey. Deadline for application submission: 18 March 2018. Preferred start date: 3 Sept 2018.
