Plano de trabalhos: IA (Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço) is strongly contributing to ESA’s CHEOPS mission, in operation since its launch in December 2019. Part of this contribution  is related to the detection and characterization of planetary systems which will be targeted by CHEOPS. Our group works on different scientific aspects of this mission, including the spectroscopic characterization of planet-host stars and the detailed analysis of the CHEOPS light curves, in order to extract information such as planetary fundamental parameters, or the study of phase curves to infer proprieties of the planet’s atmosphere. The work plan of these fellowships will be directly related with IA’s contribution to CHEOPS.

Local de Trabalho: Centro de Astrofísica da Universidade do Porto.

Duração da bolsaAs bolsas terão a duração de 12 meses, com início previsto em outubro/novembro de 2020.
