THE 2D PASIPHAE MEETING

Second PASIPHAE meeting took place in Crete on March, 31, 2017. We discussed the following topics:

  • WALOPs Instrument Development Update / Calibration Strategy / RoboPol S (lead by Prof. A. N. Ramaprakash)
  • Real RoboPol Data Examples / ISM tomography (lead by Prof. K. Tassis and G. Panopoulou)
  • From PASIPHAE tomographic map to CMB foreground separation (lead by A. Karakci and Prof. H. K. Eriksen)

Participants:
Caltech: H. Hensley, T. Pearson, T. Readhead
U. of Crete/FORTH: D. Blinov, G. Kougentakis, J. Kypriotakis, G. Panopoulou, G. Paterakis, V. Pavlidou, P. Reig, A. Steiakaki, K. Tassis

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.
