1st meeting attendees

We are hiring

The Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas, the foremost research organization in Greece, invites applications for 3 postdoctoral positions for the PASIPHAE project.

We are building a team with diverse expertise (both observational and theoretical), including the Galactic magnetic field, optical polarimetry, numerical and statistical analysis (including the numerical solutions of complex boundary-value problems and/or machine learning algorithms), interstellar medium astrophysics, high-energy astrophysics including gamma-ray and cosmic-ray astrophysics, and stellar astrophysics (with emphasis on intrinsic stellar polarizations). Applicants with strong background in any of these fields are encouraged to apply.
