My apologies for cross postings.

I have a vacancy for a Early-Stage Researcher (ESR)  at the U. Edinburgh to work on exoplanet atmospheres. The ESR will work towards a PhD by using an existing 3-D model of atmospheric dynamics and chemistry to to study how lightning disequilibrium chemistry influences atmospheric chemistry on exoplanets, and what that means for interpreting measurements that will become available from the James Webb Space Telescope and other instruments.

This project is part of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) CHAMELEON “Virtual Laboratories for Exoplanets and Planet Forming Disks” ( The ITN, coordinated by the University of St Andrews, combines the expertise of eight research institutes (Universities of St. Andrews, Groningen, Copenhagen, Edinburgh, Leuven and Antwerp, the Max-Planck Institute in Heidelberg and the Netherlands Institute for Space Research) to cover all relevant expertise in planetary atmospheres and protoplanetary disks.

The post will be primarily based at the U. Edinburgh and available from September 2020 for 36 months. The Institute for Astronomy at the University of Leuven, Belgium, will be the secondary host for the ESR. The successful candidate will study for a dual-joint degree from both universities, and as such will need to register and comply with the regulations at both institutes. 

Closing date: 3rd February 2020 (the date on the advert below will be amended).
