2. Workshop “Gravitational waves: a new messenger to explore the universe” (March 1 to April 9 2021, IHP, Paris)

We are pleased to announce the six-week program “Gravitational waves: a new messenger to explore the universe”, taking place from March 1 to April 9 2021 at the Institut Henri Poincaré (IHP) in Paris.

Web: http://www.ihp.fr/en/CEB/T1B-2021

This program is intended for scientists in the field of gravitational-wave physics and astrophysics, and especially for those who wish to start conducting research in this field. Young researchers (PhD students or postdocs) are therefore particularly encouraged to apply.

Scientific activities during the program will include a series of lectures at master/PhD level, seminars, coordinated interdisciplinary exchanges, and afternoons dedicated to junior scientists, who will have the opportunity to present their research. The program will be an occasion to interact with colleagues and students within a convenient and stimulating venue in the center of Paris. The program will also host the fourth annual meeting of the Groupement de Recherche Ondes Gravitationnelles [http://gdrgw.in2p3.fr/].

The program is organized in three two-week blocks:

  1. March 1-12: theoretical aspects of gravitational-wave science
  2. March 15-22: astrophysics and cosmology
  3. March 29-April 9 : gravitational-wave detectors and data analysis

Applications are now open and should be submitted through the conference website at: https://indico.math.cnrs.fr/event/5761/overview
The deadline to apply is September 1, 2020. Requests of information are to be addressed to gwmess2021@ihp.fr

The minimal length of participation is one week. However, to foster collaborative interactions, we encourage participants to stay for longer if possible. Due to space and financial constraints, participation to this event is moderated.

The IHP provides office space on-site and also provides help finding accommodation. Financial support will be available, the amount depending on the needs of the participants and availability of funds. The deadline to apply for financial support is the same as for application to the program.

3. PhD opportunity (Naples, Italy)
Opening of six (4-years) positions for the PhD program
« Cosmology, Space Science & Space Technology (SPACE) » at the Scuola Superiore Meridionale (Napoli, Italy), which is an international school of higher education and research with a related Institute for Advanced Studies. The school is part of the Italian Public University.

The SPACE PhD program combines fundamental researches, such as those in
astrophysics, cosmology, general relativity and astroparticle physics with applied researches placed in Space, like aerospace, aerodynamics engineering, material science for extraterrestrial environment. Multidisciplinary and complementary skills are required.

The positions are fully-funded with a competitive salary and it benefits from additional funds for research activities in Italy and abroad.
