Application
The Institute for Research on Exoplanets (iREx), affiliated with the Department of Physics of the Université de Montréal (UdeM), invites applications for three (3) postdoctoral fellowships in astrophysics applied to the study of exoplanets.

One (1) of the available positions is for the Trottier Postdoctoral Fellowship, which enables forefront independent research related to exoplanets. All areas of exoplanet research will be considered, but priority will be given to candidates with research programs and expertise well aligned with the science programs of SPIRou and NIRPS.

The other two (2) positions, funded by the Canadian Space Agency, are to work with JWST NIRISS team on the data reduction, analysis and publication of their 200-hr GTO NIRISS program dedicated to transit and eclipse spectroscopy observations of a wide variety of exoplanets, from hot Jupiters to small rocky temperate planets orbiting nearby low-mass stars.
