The researcher is expected to give support to the participation of the team in CHEOPS satellite data exploitation. Within the scientific themes of CHEOPS, the candidate should be involved in the search of transits of already known exoplanets, the characterization of its radius and composition. It is also expected for the researcher to work on the study of the exoplanet’s atmosphere by using observations of the transit occultation and/or the observed phase curves. The team has already most of the tools for these analysis in place, but it is expected that the researcher participate on their optimization and in the development of new tools.

The task has an expected duration of 25 months and cannot exceed the end date of the project, 21st of May 2021. The starting date of the contract cannot be later than 1st of May 2019.
