Description

The High Energy Astrophysics Group of the STAR Institute is looking for a motivated PhD student to undertake investigations of early-type stars. Those stars are bright and massive objects that eject dense stellar winds throughout their lives and that end as neutrons stars or black holes after a titanic supernova explosion. Massive stars also are X-ray sources and those energetic emissions have several origins, not always well known. The goal of the work will be to use optical and X-ray observations to better constrain the origin of these X-ray emissions, and to develop innovative diagnostic tools to be confronted with future observations. The research to be done includes computational and observational work. The position opens on 1 January 2021. A valid application should include a letter of motivation as well as CV of the candidate and the names and coordinates of two reference persons (preferentially from two different institutions).
