Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the Anton Pannekoek Institute for Astronomy at the University of Amsterdam to work with assistant professor Jean-Michel Desert on the observational characterization of exoplanets. The primary responsibilities of the position are to lead research projects in the area of exoplanet science. Researchers working in the areas of observation, theory, or instrumentation are invited to apply.


The successful applicant will contribute to several current research programs using space-and-ground based surveys dedicated to probing exoplanet atmospheres. The programs include Space and ground-based observations, which will be used to determine the atmospheric composition, structure and dynamics of exoplanets, and preparation to JWST observations.


The postdoctoral researcher will have the opportunity to join existing projects and will also be encouraged to develop and pursue their own research program.
