Title : Binary black hole coalescences with gravitational waves: Where do they come from?

Proposant : Astrid Lamberts

Gravitational waves are opening a new window on our Universe. The first detections from LIGO and Virgo resulted from unexpectedly massive black holes (>20 Solar masses).
These discoveries raise the questions of how, when and where this binary black holes originally formed. Current models favour the formation through the interactions of massive binary stars formed in low-metallicity environments, but many questions remain about the exact evolution of interacting massive binary stars.

candidates are invited to contact us as soon as possible in order to finalise the application for an EUR SPECTRUM grant.

PhD position in high-contrast imaging instrumentation for segmented telescopes

Proposant : Patrice Martinez

PhD position in high-contrast imaging instrumentation for segmented telescopes at the Lagrange laboratory, Nice. The subject has been selected by the CNES for co-funding, and industries have been solicited for the other co-funding part. The selected candidate will work in the framework of the SPEED testbed (Segmented Pupil Experiment for Exoplanet Detection) on the development of novel diffractive complex focal plane masks with focus on high-contrast imaging (apart of the SPEED coronagraph development) and telescope cophasing (apart of the SPEED cophasing sensor development).
