The Laboratory has major research and training facilities in observational, instrumental and theoretical astronomy, and is a strong participant in space and ground based instrumentation and astronomical surveys.
Positions are available in all the research areas in which the Laboratory is active. These include cosmology and large scale structure, galaxy formation and evolution, star formation and interstellar medium, stars and extrasolar planets, solar system and planetary formation, and astronomical optics and instrumentation.
Applicants must have a solid physics background, and a Master degree or equivalent by the time the position is begun. Previous research experience and skills will be important criteria for the selection. The PhD positions are not restricted by nationality.
Working languages in the Laboratory are French and English ; support for French language courses is available (for free).
The fellowships are available for 3 years.
Application package must include :
- Cover letter
- 2 letters of recommandation
