Short Term Post-Doctoral Researcher In Plasma Physics

Universities and Institutes of France


October 21, 2022


  • Organisation/Company: CNRS Lagrange Laboratory
  • Research Field: Physics › Other
  • Researcher Profile: First Stage Researcher (R1)
  • Application Deadline: 21/10/2022 17:00 - Europe/Brussels
  • Location: France › Nice
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Hours Per Week: 38
  • Offer Starting Date: 01/02/2023
  • The Laboratoire Lagrange invites applications for a short-term postdoctoral fellowship in plasma physics, to work in the group "Turbulence fluide et plasma", under the supervision of Thierry Passot and Emanuele Tassi. The appointment is for four and a half months.

    The successful applicant is expected to carry out original research in the area of theory and numerical simulations of gyrofluid models in the context of magnetic reconnection in collisionless space plasmas. In particular, a gyrofluid model is expected to be applied in order to investigate the destabilization of current sheets in collisionless plasmas, at scales much shorter than the ion scales. A 3D fully parallelized spectral code will be provided, in which it will be easy to implement the model equations.

    Applicants should send their cv and a statement of research interests to the attention of Emanuele Tassi (

    They should also arrange for one letter of recommendation to be sent to the same address.


    The estimated gross monthly salary is 2833 Euros.

    Benefits include health insurance and retirement plan.

    Selection process

    Candidates should send a CV and a research statement to Emanuele Tassi. ( or to Thierry Passot (

    They should also arrange for one letter of recommendation to be sent to the same address.

    Offer Requirements Skills/Qualifications

    The candidate must hold, or expect to obtain in the next months, a PhD in Physics (or equivalent)

    Specific Requirements

    Experience with numerical simulations of collisionless magnetic reconnection by means of gyrofluid models
