Job title:
Two year postdoctoral position on gravitational-wave data analysis at Univ Paris Cité (APC)
Job description:
We are recruiting a postdoctoral fellow for a 24-month contract, as part of the RICOCHET project [] funded by the French National Research Agency. RICOCHET is an interdisciplinary project bringing together data scientists and physicists. The project aims to address fundamental theoretical issues related to the representation and measurement of the polarization state, as well as the use of Bayesian and/or statistical learning approaches to model polarization. The aim of the project is to develop methodological tools for characterizing and exploiting polarization information extracted from bivariate (i.e. two-dimensional) signals. These tools will be applied and evaluated in a range of applications, including gravitational astronomy, the main subject of the present offer. The successful candidate will collaborate with Eric Chassande-Mottin (one of the co-leads of RICOCHET) on the development of analysis methods for gravitational polarimetry based on observations from the Virgo and LIGO gravitational wave detectors. This largely unexplored field offers promising prospects. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to join the international Virgo scientific collaboration and work on the latest data from the O4 science run currently underway. Contract Period : 24 months Remuneration : Between 4100 and 4540 euros gross per month depending on experience The candidate must hold: - either a PhD in statistical signal processing, data science or machine learning with an interest in astrophysics ; - or a PhD in astroparticle physics with skills and professional experience in experimental data analysis.
