Since Nov 2020 Rahul Srinivasan has joined me in Nice as a graduate student. He will be working on the formation of black holes in different types of galaxies, including the Milky Way.

For the fall 2021 I will be hiring a postdoctoral researcher and another PhD student, to be funded through a French national grant (ANR JCJC “COSMERGE”). The project will focus on the formation channels of black hole mergers observed by LIGO/Virgo/Kagra in the next observing run 04.

More information on the postdoctoral position (DL Nov 15 but later applications will be considered until the position is filled). can be found at

Prospective Graduate students should send a CV, cover letter and arrange for 2 letters of recommendation (to be sent directly to me) by Feb. 1st.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you want to know more.
