Nuclear Astrophysics: Supernovae and Chemical Evolution

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

The postdoctoral researcher will contribute to a theoretical program in either (a) chemodynarnical evolution of star-forming regions from the primordial to the present-day universe or (b) Type Ia supernova models of double degenerate mergers and using them to improve constraints on Chemical evolution of the iron group elements and the nature of dark energy. Which program is chosen will depend on the interests of the successful applicant. Both programs are relevant to the activities of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics. The successful applicant will also have opportunities to engage in independent research related to nuclear astrophysics.
