2) PLATO Atmospheres Workshop | December 8-10, 2021 | Virtual
We are pleased to announce the PLATO atmospheres workshop which will be held online via webex on DECEMBER 8-10 2021.

Details of the final programme and schedule are still being finalised. We plan to have three afternoon sessions each starting at 14:00 CET and ending with a short breakout discussion. The three sessions are:

Sub-Neptunes (Wednesday 8th December)
Hot Jupiters (Thursday 9th December)
(Hot) Earth-like Planets (Friday 10th December)

We will end on the Friday with a general discussion including joint strategies with exoplanet missions following PLATO.

Confirmed speakers include: Eliza Kempton, Vivien Parmentier and Mark Hammond.

Planned are 20-minute invited talks, 10-minute standard talks and a poster session.

SCIENCE CONTRIBUTIONS

Although it is not the main aim of the PLATO mission to characterise atmospheres, it is nevertheless possible with PLATO to constrain basic atmospheric information e.g. to observe possible phase curves hence albedo and meridional transport for some favorable Ultra Hot Jupiter or/and Hot Jupiter atmospheres, or to constrain bulk composition via the Rayleigh Absorption Feature with the Fast Camera Filters, or to distinguish different types of massive early steam atmospheres from PLATO measurements of planetary radius and age.

We welcome contributions from the exoplanetary science community at large on exoplanetary atmospheres including (Ultra) Hot Jupiters, Sub-Neptunes and (hot) terrestrial exoplanets for modeling and observations. This includes data analyses and modeling studies on atmospheric composition, climate, escape, clouds, retrieval, phase curves and evolution of hot and temperate rocky and gassy exoplanets. The organizers particularly welcome a clear demonstrable link with the PLATO mission science goals.

6) Postdoc position in exoplanets at Leiden Observatory

Dear colleagues,

I like to advertise a postdoc position in my group - funded through my ERC Adv grant. Research focuses on the characterisation of extra-solar planets using a variety of observational methods. We search for an outstanding and ambitious exoplanet scientist, (observer, theorist, instrumentalist), who is keen to help to lead us to future directions in exoplanet atmospheric research.

Leiden Observatory, founded in 1633, is the oldest university astronomy department in the world. With about 25 faculty, over 50 postdoctoral associates and about 75 PhD students it is the largest astronomy department in the Netherlands. Leiden is a charming university town with an international flair. Most Leiden researchers have an international background. English is the common language.

What is peculiar about this position is that the funding runs out end of November 2022, so 16 months from now - starting date: the sooner the better. Maybe there will be other opportunities to extend, but those are not guaranteed. Please contact me directly if interested (Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs.

8) Postdoc à Berlin sur le couplage atmosphères-ecosystèmes sur les exoplanètes

Your mission:

This position is concerned with basic scientific research investigating the interaction between life and the atmosphere on the early Earth and on Earth-like planets. During the evolution of the Earth, cycles linking the geophysics of the planetary interior and surface with the atmosphere likely played an important role. This study involves the implementation of these processes as well as the analysis of exoplanet scenarios with the Coupled Atmosphere Biogeochemistry (CAB) model and validation of model results via the use of an M-dwarf star lamp at DLR laboratories.

The department "Extrasolar Planets and Atmospheres" (EPA) at the Institute of Planetary Research of DLR deals with the detection of extrasolar planets as well as the numerical modeling of habitability and atmospheric biosignatures on terrestrial planets. On the subject of planetary structure and interior, it works closely with the "Planetary Physics" department. EPA is a leading participant in the European satellite missions for the search and characterization of extrasolar planets (CHEOPS, PLATO) as well as in ground-based instruments/telescopes.

Modelers in the PF-EPA group are developing a radiative-convective climate model with coupled photochemistry to study the atmospheric temperature structure and chemical composition of rocky exoplanets and gas-rich sub-Neptunes. In particular, the work focuses on modeling small exoplanets in the habitable zone around cooler central stars. Such stars are particularly common in the solar neighborhood and are favorable targets for exoplanet observations with missions such as CHEOPS and PLATO.

Your tasks:

    implementation of carbon (C)-nitrogen (N)-sulfur (S) biogeochemistry cycles in the coupled Atmosphere Biogeochemistry (CAB) model available at EPA
    validation of the implementation with laboratory data
    analysis of exoplanet scenarios with the model, use of the M-dwarf star lamp at the DLR laboratory

Your qualifications:

    completed scientific university studies (Master's degree or equivalent) in physics, astronomy, astrophysics, or similar field
    completed PhD in geophysics, physics, or astrophysics
    knowledge of scientific programming in high-level language, e.g., Python, IDL, Fortran, or C++
    experience developing atmospheric models of terrestrial (exo)planets
    knowledge of atmospheric chemistry and biology is desirable
    ability to work collaboratively individually and as part of relatively large international teams
    good command of the English language, excellent communication skills, including the ability to write in English

Your benefits:

Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development. Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalleled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives. Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (f/m/x).

9) Postdoctoral position in non-LTE radiative transfer at Observatoire de Paris (LESIA)

Applications are open for a Postdoctoral Research position within the planetary science group of LESIA at Observatoire de Paris, France.  The position is in relation with the Early Release Science (ERS) Program on JWST “Observations of the Jovian System as a Demonstration of JWST’s Capabilities for Solar System Science’’, to which LESIA is associated through co-PI and co-I ships. JWST is expected to be launched in the fall of 2021, and a fraction of this ERS program will be devoted to the study of the tenuous atmo/exospheres of Io and Ganymede with MIRI and NIRSpec. In particular, Io’s atmosphere will be studied from observing of SO2 gas at 8.6 and 7.3 μm with MIRI, and Ganymede’s exosphere will be targeted with NIRSpec through fluorescent emissions from H2O (6.5 μm), CO (4.65 μm), and CO2 (4.25 μm). The analysis of the data will require the development of tailored non-LTE models for these molecular features, coupled with physical (temperature, densities) models of the two objects. The successful applicant will participate in the development of a versatile non-LTE code applicable to both objects. He/she will also be involved in data reduction, modelling, and interpretation, after data are acquired (nominally in June-August 2022). Experience in radiative transfer in planetary atmosphere is required, and preference will be given to applicants with experience with non-LTE aspects.

The position is available for two years, starting anytime between Oct. 01, 2021 and February 01, 2022. Applications will be considered as they come and welcome until Oct. 01, 2021.

Ariel is the medium mission "M4" in ESA's Science Programme. Ariel will perform a chemical survey of a diverse sample of at least 500 exoplanets orbiting host stars with a range of spectral types. Most Ariel observations will consist of transit and/or eclipse spectroscopy of the atmospheres of warm and hot exoplanets, to address the following fundamental questions:
What are exoplanets made of?
How do planets and planetary systems form?
How do planets and their atmospheres evolve over time?
Community Scientists

Through this AO, ESA aims to appoint up to five Community Scientists who will join the Ariel Science Team. Up to three Community Scientists are expected to cover science areas augmenting those of the Ariel Science Team (AST) members from the Ariel Mission Consortium and from international partners (e.g., they will have expertise in fields such as Solar System planetary science, data science, protoplanetary discs). A further two Community Scientists will be selected in scientific areas relevant for the Complementary Science programme. The main responsibility of the Community Scientists will be to advise ESA on the means to optimise the use of Ariel data by the general scientific community. This includes looking after the interests of the scientific community involved in the Ariel complementary science programmes. In addition, the Community Scientists will be expected to provide support to the communications activities of ESA.

The successful candidates will be appointed, ad personam, for an initial term of three years, which may be renewed.

This edition will highlight the synergies with the IRAM NOrthern Extended Millimetre Array (NOEMA).

The lectures will be complemented by practical work using the 30-meter telescope. As usual, students, lecturers and technical assistants will form small groups, to work on one topic, preparing a science case, conducting the observations with the 30-meter telescope, reducing the data, and presenting first results on the last day of the school. However, unlike previous schools, where trainers and students performed their observations at the telescope site, in this edition all observations will be conducted in remote mode.

The school is aimed at attracting new scientists to current and future single-dish millimetre and sub-millimetre facilities. The school is primarily meant for young researchers with little previous experience in mm-astronomy.

Due to the constraints imposed by the practices at the telescope (even in remote mode), the school attendance will be limited to about 60 students who will be selected on the basis of their interests, experience, and references. Other considerations will be taken into account. In particular, we will strive to achieve balance in gender and geographical origin for attendees and lecturers.

The school pages will be available soon in the IRAM web site. For reference the information of the previous school edition (September 2019) can be consulted here (https://www.iram-institute.org/EN/content-page-402-7-67-402-0-0.html)

Best regards,
Miguel Sánchez-Portal, on behalf of the Science Organising Committee

4) SPHERE Data Center survey
Dear colleagues,

We have implemented a survey to get feedback from any researcher who might be interested in VLT/SPHERE data and other high contrast imaging survey data, so that we can improve our services and implement new functionalities based on your real needs.

This survey is aimed both at researchers who already know these services and at researchers who do not know them yet.

The main mission of the SPHERE Data Center is to process all SPHERE public data and make available the reduced products. We also perform data processing on request. The reduction and analysis is based on the official ESO pipeline, as well as many dedicated improvements and additional routines (reduction, frame sorting, analysis, characterisation). In addition to reduced SPHERE data, through the DIVA+ database, we also distribute reduced high contrast imaging data from several published exoplanet surveys (acquired VLT/Naco, HST, Keck, etc.).

If you are interested by this kind of data, please fill the survey https://spheredc.limesurvey.net/497529?lang=en before the 17th of June. It should take between 5-15mn of your time and will be of considerable help for us to improve our service to the astronomical community.

We apologize if you receive this request several times through different diffusion lists. Thank you for your help !

Best Regards,

Nadège Meunier
on behalf of the SPHERE Data Center team

5) Session massive de l’atelier Ma terre en 180' | 14 - 18 juin

Ma Terre en 180 minutes est le tout premier atelier collaboratif créé par et pour le monde académique afin de construire ensemble des scénarios de réduction de notre empreinte carbone.
Pour construire ces scénarios, Ma Terre en 180 minutes vous invite à participer à une session massive de l’atelier qui se tiendra en ligne, en deux étapes, entre le 14 et 18 juin : une étape de sensibilisation de 1 heure 30, le 14 ou le 15 juin ; et la phase de recherche de solution, un brainstorming sous forme de jeu de 2 heures, le 18 juin.

Vous souhaitez participer à la transformation des pratiques au sein de l’enseignement supérieur et des organismes de recherche ? Vous avez envie d’échanger, de manière ludique, sans affect, autour de l’empreinte carbone d’un laboratoire en questionnant l’organisation de vos activités ? Vous voulez proposer des mesures concrètes, adaptées aux spécificités de vos activités, à mettre en œuvre pour réduire notre empreinte carbone de 50 % d’ici 2030 ?

► Inscrivez-vous à la Session massive de l’atelier Ma terre en 180' !

Choisissez votre équipe de jeu virtuelle, dans le domaine qui vous intéresse - climatologie, dynamique de la terre, société et environnement, modélisation, technologie et transition, qualité de l’air, ressources en eau, etc. -, et choisissez l’horaire qui vous convient le mieux.

Un seul prérequis : disposer d’un ordinateur et d’une bonne connexion internet.

Plus de 50 animatrices et animateurs sont formés et mobilisés pour vous accueillir et vous accompagner pour cette session massive. Des parrains et marraines seront présents autour de chaque jeu pour faire le lien Science-Société, apporter leur regard parfois décalé, sur nos pratiques, nos solutions. Avec un objectif partagé : construire ensemble des solutions pour faire évoluer nos pratiques.
Découvrez tous les jeux proposés en cliquant ici.

À noter : les sessions de jeux seront enregistrées afin de pouvoir analyser les données qu’elles permettront de produire.


6) 2-year postdoc on HiRISE at LAM

https://euraxess.ec.europa.eu/jobs/621889

HiRISE implements a fiber optics coupling between the exoplanet imager SPHERE and the high-resolution spectrograph CRIRES+. It will enable the characterisation of directly-imaged exoplanets in the H-band with a large expected gain in SNR compared to CRIRES+ in standalone (Otten et al. 2021; https://ui.adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/2021A%26A...646A.150O/abstract). The project is starting its integration and testing phase in Europe before its installation at the VLT in 2022, and the beginning of science observations shortly afterwards.

We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher who will be working with the HiRISE team on the scientific validation of the instrument, on the preparation of the observing program, and on the analysis and interpretation of the first on-sky data. Applications sent before Friday 25 June 2021 will receive full consideration, but the position will remain open until filled. The expected start date is between September and November 2021.
