PhD position on Time-resolved Raman spectroscopy for investigating Mars habitability

The PhD student will be strongly involved in the setup and development of a timeresolved Raman spectrometer at IMPMC starting in the end of 2016. This equipment will be unique as it will allow bulk analyses (≈mm3) at distance in a Martian chamber (similarly to how SuperCam will operate on Mars) as well as analyses at the microscale (≈μm3) including Raman mapping.

PhD position in Geneva

Applications are invited for a PhD student position at the Department of Astronomy of the University of Geneva to start as soon as possible.

The successful candidate will be member of the research group led by Dr. Marc Audard in the field of star and planet formation. The PhD student will work on a project to study the episodic accretion phenomenon in star and planet formation using observational data (proprietary and archival), by modelling them using thermochemical codes, and by comparing with theoretical models developped at the Department of Astrophysics at the University of Vienna, Austria (Dr. Eduard Vorobyov and Prof. Manuel Guedel).

Postdoc position: Prebiotic chemistry (Computational), Sorbonne, Paris

An 18-months postdoctoral position is offered at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie – Sorbonne of Paris, under the supervision of Profs. A. Marco Saitta and Fabio Pietrucci.

The project, focused on advanced ab initio free-energy methods (metadynamics and beyond) to model the synthesis of fundamental biochemical bricks under realistic prebiotic conditions, will develop within a larger research consortium. This includes the experimental groups of Profs. M.-C. Maurel (Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle), J.-F. Lambert and T. Georgelin (Chemistry Department of UPMC), and F. Guyot (Institut de Minéralogie, de Physique des Matériaux et de Cosmochimie), all in Paris. The fellowship, funded by the Sorbonne Excellence Cluster "MATISSE" (MATerials, InterfaceS, Surfaces, Environment), should start in 2016, at the earliest convenience.

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs)

Aiming at fostering collaboration, sharing new techniques, and infrastructure that may not be available in other participants' institutions or laboratories. STSMs are intended especially for young PhD researchers, but they are open to senior researchers as well. View the documents at this link.

 It should be explicitely noted that Master students are not eligible for STSMs which are for PhD students and more experienced researchers.

The life-Origins COST Project


Life-ORIGINS (TD1308) is a Trans Domain European COST Action dedicated to the scientific investigation of the origins and evolution of life on Earth and habitability of other planets.

The Action has specifically excluded the search for intelligent extraterrestrial life in its portfolio. Creationist theorems are also outside the Action’s remit.

Individuals are not allowed to use the name of the Action, its logo or any corporate identity of COST TD1308 in any communication without prior approval of the Management Committee.

All publications referencing the support of the Action should be sent to the appropriate Working Group chair at the time of submission.
