POSTDOC POSITION AT APC/IAP ON “Opening new windows on the early universe with multi-messenger astronomy”

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position joint between the “Astroparticule et Cosmologie (APC)” Institute and the “Institute d’Astrophysique de Paris (IAP)” both in Paris, France. The appointment is for two-years (starting date fall 2020), in the context of the ANR-funded project “Opening new windows on the early universe with multi-messenger astronomy” in collaboration with Moscow and Novosibirsk Universities. In particular, the project focuses on four observables: cosmic magnetic fields, stochastic gravitational wave backgrounds, cosmic rays and dark matter in the form of primordial black holes.

The successful candidate (preferably less than 3 years after Ph.D.), will ideally have expertise on numerical simulations of large-scale structure, and will contribute to the modelling of the magnetic field evolution with constrained cosmological simulations reproducing the observed LSS in the local Universe, and to the modelling of the propagation of high-energy particles through the so predicted magnetic field. She/he will work in close collaboration with Guilhem Lavaux (IAP), Andrii Neronov (APC) and Dmitri Semikoz (APC), and is expected to spend about 50% of the total working time in each institute. The successful candidate will also be able to join the Aquila collaboration (

A Ph.D. in physics or astrophysics is required, and a demonstrated ability to carry out independent research is expected. The salary will depend on the candidate’s track record, following CNRS hiring rules. Enquiries about this position can be addressed to Dmitri Semikoz:
